At the start of his film career Keaton was best known for starring in comedies such as ''Film/MrMom'', ''JohnnyDangerously'', and Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'', although he would become notable for his range in both comedy and drama when he was cast again by Burton as the [[{{Franchise/Batman}} eponymous character]] in his then latest gig, ''Film/{{Batman}}'', which was to be [[DarkerAndEdgier a return to the character's roots as a grim avenger of the night]]. Fans did not open up to the casting at first and sent letters to Creator/WarnerBros expressing their disdain by citing that Keaton had only done comedy and was too short and too "ugly" to play Batman. A quick trailer was released by WB, showcasing a glimpse of Keaton's {{badass}}ery and [[TheStoic seriousness]] in the role, and most fans were won over and bought tickets. Needless to say, the film was a huge commercial success and was the biggest money-maker of 1989.

He has made a '''major''' comeback with the critically acclaimed {{Film/Birdman}}, with people calling it "the best movie of 2014", and saying Keaton should get the Oscar for "Best Actor" (and in fact it has been nominated for ''nine'' Oscars, with Keaton getting a nom for "Best Actor"). The film has won ''over a hundred awards''. He cemented his comeback with a leading role in ''Film/{{Spotlight}}'' the following year.

** And by extension - BaldOfAwesome. He's not quite there yet, but he's definitely awesome.awesome. * WhatCouldHaveBeen: He was originally cast as Jack for ''Series/{{Lost}}'', when the plan was for Jack to die in the pilot episode. However, the network insisted that they do not kill off what they saw as the lead character in the pilot, and Keaton backed out because he refused to be committed to a series.
