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'', including the Best Picture Oscar. He cemented his comeback with a leading role in ''Film/{{Spotlight}}'' the following year, which also won the Best Picture Oscar.

* OldShame: His [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPZxhk56O_M attempt]] at stand-up comedy, according to him.
* OneOfUs: He's a well known Pittsburgh Pirates fan, is a semi regular poster on [[https://twitter.com/MichaelKeaton Twitter]] and [[http://instagram.com/michaelkeatondouglas Instagram]], loves fishing, cooking, riding his horses, and [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/lat-keaton-dog_ljyylznc20110512123559,0,1430220.photo playing with his dogs]]. He also recently admitted he's a fan of KatyPerry.
** He's a part of the [[http://outdoorchannel.com/show.aspx?show-id=741 cast]] of the series "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhZpH_8CIWM Buccaneers and Bones]]", and also helped out with an [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/monteburke/2013/04/05/actor-michael-keaton-writer-tom-mcguane-and-flyfishing-legend-stu-apte-come-together-to-help-save-bonefish-and-tarpon/ event]] to help save the bonefish, permit and tarpon.
* PlayingAgainstType: He used to be known as a mainly comedic actor, but then a little film called {{Film/Batman}} came along...



** And by extension - BaldOfAwesome. He's not quite there yet, but he's definitely 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.

His real name is Michael John Douglas, but since there was already a [[Creator/MichaelDouglas Michael Douglas]] in the Screen Actors Guild, which doesn't permit doubles on its rolls, he chose to use the last name of Keaton partly due to Creator/BusterKeaton and partly because he heard the name and thought it sounded good (he has never legally changed his name, though).

Around the same time that the film came out, it was revealed that he was being [[http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Michael-Keaton-Actually-Being-Sued-Ruining-Movie-67635.html sued for "ruining"]] "The Merry Gentleman", with the case [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/michael-keaton-fighting-lawsuit-claiming-739679 possibly going to trial]] in the spring of 2015. Popular opinion is that Keaton was nothing but a perfect [[IncrediblyLamePun gentleman]] on set, and the producers are just looking to cash in on his fame. It was announced on December 23, 2014 that the [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/michael-keaton-beats-producers-lawsuit-760029 judge had decided in favour of Keaton]] and dismissed the claims.

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.
