Actor Michael Keaton had his first hit with "Mr. Mom." He later worked with directors Tim Burton, Kenneth Branagh and Quentin Tarantino.
After initially attending Kent State University for two years, Keaton dropped out to pursue an acting career. He found work as a cab driver and an ice cream truck driver in his hometown for a while, as he tried his hand at stand-up comedy. In 1975, Keaton made his television debut on the children's series "Mister Roger's Neighborhood," which was filmed in Pittsburgh. The small role was the beginning of a long and lustrous career.
Keaton had a career breakthrough with 1983's "Mr. Mom" and then starred in "Johnny Dangerously." Keaton proved his range as a performer with two very different films; "Beetlejuice" and "Clean and Sober," playing a real estate agent with a substance abuse problem.
Keaton moved to blockbuster fare in 1989, taking on the role of one of the country's most famous comic book characters in "Batman" and its sequel, "Batman Returns." The films reunited Keaton with director Tim Burton, and Keaton played the famous Batman character with a darker edge than had been portrayed in previous incarnations.
Again showing his range as an actor, Keaton had roles in "Much Ado About Nothing," "My Life," "Jackie Brown" and "Out of Sight."
In the 2002 television movie "Live from Baghdad," he portrayed the story of CNN reporters during the Gulf War. For his impressive work on the project, Keaton received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.
Keaton stepped behind the camera in 2008, when he made his directorial debut on the small-budget independent drama "The Merry Gentleman."
Proving he's still at the top of his game, Keaton received critical accolades for his role in 2014's "Birdman" playing a washed-up actor trying to mount a comeback.
