Academy Award®-nominated actor Michael Keaton has created some of the most iconic, diverse and beloved performances of all time. He is one of the few leading men whose films, “Spotlight” and “Birdman,” won the Academy Award® for Best Picture back-to-back.
Currently, Keaton can be seen as Former U.S. attorney general Ramsey Clark in Aaron Sorkin’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7” which Netflix released on October 16. Keaton’s brief appearance garnered rave reviews. The Wrap describes his performance by saying “with effortless command, Keaton steals the show by slowing the rapid-fire Sorkin dialogue down to a crawl; he makes you lean in for every word.” The critically acclaimed ensemble cast has earned various accolades, including the first-ever Gotham Independent Film Ensemble Tribute and the Vanguard Award at the Palm Springs International Film Awards. Additionally, the cast received a SAG nomination for “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Cast.”
Upcoming in 2021, Keaton stars in and executive produces Hulu’s new series “Dopesick” written by Danny Strong and directed by Barry Levinson. Keaton stars alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Maggie Q in Martin Campbell’s action thriller feature film “The Protégé,” for Lionsgate which will be released on August 20th. Additionally, Keaton stars in and produced Sara Colangelo’s real-life drama “Worth,” which will be released by Netflix and presented by the Obama’s Higher Ground Productions on September 3rd, timed to the 20th anniversary on 9/11. The film follows Kenneth Feinberg (Keaton), an accomplished lawyer appointed Special Master of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, tasked by Congress to allocate financial compensation to the victims of the tragedy — to calculate incalculable loss in the face of cynicism, bureaucracy, and the politics of division.
Keaton will appear in Sony’s “Morbius,” based on the Marvel Comics of the same name, set to release January 21, 2022.
In 2015, Keaton starred in the Academy Award®-winning Best Picture “Spotlight,” the compelling true story of how The Boston Globe uncovered a massive scandal within the Catholic Church. In Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s “Birdman,” Keaton amassed high praise for his role as Riggan, a one-time celebrated, now washed-up actor battling to regain his ego and career by mounting a Broadway production. For his work in Birdman, Keaton was nominated for an Academy Award® and won the Golden Globe® , Independent Spirit and National Board of Review Awards for Best Actor as well as many other nominations and honors including a SAG Ensemble Cast win.
In one of Hollywood’s great collaborations of all time, Keaton has worked with the visionary filmmaker Tim Burton four times, most recently on Walt Disney Studios’ “Dumbo,” which was released in March 2019. Prior to that, Keaton played the title role in the blockbusters “Batman” and “Batman Returns.” Their first collaboration was the beloved classic “Beetlejuice.”
Additional credits include his portrayal of Vulture in the fan-favorite “Spiderman: Homecoming;” a legendary CIA trainer in “American Assassin;” his portrayal of Roy Kroc, the father of McDonald’s, in “The Founder;” as intrepid CNN reporter Robert Weiner in HBO’s “Live from Baghdad,” and Universal’s thriller “White Noise” and “Game Six.” Keaton first achieved national attention with the hit comedy “Night Shift,” followed by starring roles in such popular films as “Mr. Mom,” “Johnny Dangerously” and “Dream Team.”
