While making the Richard Linklater film A Scanner Darkly, a bearded Keanu Reeves has been busily taking in Austin's nightlife. One favorite haunt has proved to be local eatery La Traviata, where he dined Tuesday night on a spicy shrimp and pasta dish and champagne before sharing a lemon tart with his female companion. (After dinner he laid out a platinum American Express card, though they split the tab.) The Matrix star, 39, apparently loves this pasta dish – he's ordered it several times at the cozy bistro, we're told. Recently, a group of teenage girls celebrating a friend's birthday there tried not to stare at Reeves – but the soft-spoken star stopped by their table anyway on his way out and congratulated the guest of honor. Unfortunately, the locals weren't so hospitable on a different night at the popular Dog & Duck Pub – Reeves got up and left when an inebriated patron began heckling him.

KEANU KICKS: Currently completing two sequels to his 1999 hit "The Matrix," Keanu Reeves, 37, is looking to bring back the '70s counterculture hero of the "Billy Jack" movies, Variety reported. In the original, actor Tom Laughlin starred as Billy, a half-Native American ex-Green Beret karate expert who saved wild horses from being slaughtered for dog food and runaway teens from troubled pasts. Reeves is said to be discussing the resurrection of Billy Jack with Danny DeVito's production company, Jersey Films, with an eye toward shopping the project at various studios. Laughlin, still kicking at age 70, is expected to play a crucial role in the production, says Variety.
