Early Work And The Career That Lead On
Keaton’s first appearance on TV was in 1975. He stared on Pittsburgh public television programs ‘Where the Heart Is’ and ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’. Keaton also worked in Pittsburgh theatre. The role of Rick in the Pittsburgh premiere of ‘Sticks and Bones’ was played by him. The play was written by David William Rabe. He did stand-up comedy during his early years to generate more income. Working in the comedy series ‘Working Stiffs’ brought to light his comedic talents and led to his co-starring role in the comedy ‘Night Shift’ directed by Ron Howard. This film led Keaton to earn the lead role in a comedy hit ‘Mr. Mom’. Comic roles were all he got in the start, and he desperately wanted to be in serious or dramatic roles.
But this was not the end, 1988 was his year. He landed 2 major roles, forever changing his image in the eyes of the audience. He played the lead role in the horror-comedy ‘Beetlejuice’, which was directed by Tim Burton. This film earned Keaton widespread acclaim and making it to Hollywood’s A-list. That same year, he also acted as a drug-addicted realtor in Glenn Gordon Caron’s ‘Clean and Sober’, which was well received by both audience and critics alike.
The Guy Who We Know As ‘The Batman’
After Tim Burton gave him another role in his comic book superhero film, Batman (1989), Keaton’s career skyrocketed. Warner Bros received many complaint letters from fans who believed that he was the wrong choice to portray Batman. However, his performance in this role ultimately earned praise and applause from both critics and audiences. Batman became one of the most successful films of 1989. This was also the time when Keaton had started dating Caroline McWilliams. Keaton was not surprised when he was given the role of Batman because he thought that the movie would be similar to the television series starring Adam West. He later reprised the role for the sequel Batman Returns (1992), which was yet another huge success. He was also set to play the role again for the third iteration, but when Burton was dropped as director of the film, Keaton left the franchise as well.
