New ‘Bill and Ted 3’ movie casts wounded warriors as extras


Whoa! Wounded warriors have been cast as extras for the new Bill and Ted 3 movie. The excellent news was first tweeted by CNN news anchor Jake Tapper on Aug. 13.

Tapper, a longtime Homes for our Troops‘ supporter and mission ambassador, enlisted the help of friends, namely movie stars and entertainment icons, to arrange an extensive assortment of auction items to benefit the organization back in November 2018. One of the auction items was a tour of the Bill and Ted 3 movie set.

But screen writer Ed Solomon wanted to do more for Veterans than just a tour. He also cast several wounded Veterans in the film, and Tapper thanked him on social media for the righteous move.


It’s still unknown what part these Veterans will play in the upcoming film starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, but judging by the smiles on their faces the Hollywood experience has been epic.

    Way cool. Keanu Reeves is a very humble dude from everything I’ve read and seen.
