Conversations with Michael Keaton

Published February 20, 2017

As a huge fan of Michael Keaton (and who isn’t?), I’ve loved the fact that he’s had a career resurgence of late. Between Birman (2014), Spotlight (2015), and The Founder (2016), the erstwhile Batman has become as much sought after as he was in the early days of his career.

After recently searching for some Keaton material on YouTube, I stumbled across an interview with the actor from 2015 . In this long conversation, he discusses much of the work from his early career, like his stand-ip days, his stint as a stagehand on Mister Rogers Neighborhood (filmed in his hometown of Pittsburgh), and early films like Night Shift (the first of three collaborations between Keaton and director Ron Howard).

Interested? Check it out below. (Love the part around the 45:00 minute mark where he discuses improv on the set of Mr. Mom, and the infamous chainsaw scene.)
