Michael Keaton is an American actor. His debut role in the manic morgue comedy ?Night Shift? (1982, with Shelley Long) was typical of his offbeat style. He really became a star as the frenetic title ghoul in Tim Burton’s dark comedy ?Beetlejuice? (1988). The next year he played Batman in Burton’s big-budget movie Batman; Keaton helped the film become a lucrative Hollywood series. He played the Caped Crusader in the 1992 sequel, ?Batman Returns,? before giving way to Val Kilmer (?Batman Forever,? 1995) and George Clooney (?Batman and Robin,? 1997). He had more serious roles in dramas like ?Clean and Sober? (1988), ?Pacific Heights? (1990, with Keaton as the nightmare tenant of homeowner Melanie Griffith), and the haunting horror flick ?White Noise? (2005).
