The Yes Indeed Papers Salute.....

Michael Keaton

Keaton is long overdue for a salute from me. I mean, the guy was the first legitimate Batman for crying out loud. He is such a versatile actor and doesn't get enough credit. I hope this generation knows who he is. In my opinion, he should have won an Oscar for best actor or best supporting for his role in Beetlejuice. He was awesome! Probably his best role. But like I said, he's such a versatile actor that he's good in  so many roles. Here are some of his more memorable roles.
(In chronological order)

  • Mr. Mom   (1983)
  • Johnny Dangerously   (1984)
  • Beetlejuice   (1988) 
  • The Dream Team   (1989)
  • Batman   (1989)
  • Batman Returns   (1992)
  • My Life   (1993)
  • The Paper   (1994)
  • Multiplicity   (1996)
  • Jackie Brown   (1998)
  • Out of Sight   (1998)
  • White Noise   (2005)
  • Cars - voice   (2006)
  • Toy Story 3  - voice   (2010)
  • The other Guys   2010

Keaton definitely deserves more credit. The guy's awesome in my opinion. He was one of the better Batman's. Probably the best behind Christian Bale. And I think I speak for a lot of nerds, Keaton and Tim Burton fans out there and say please, please, please do a sequel to Beetlejuice with the original cast. Oh man, that would be amazing. Anyways, I digress. I feel that some people out there will agree with me in my entry for Keaton for an unappreciated actor. Some people might not, but those people are incorrect, Michael Keaton is the man and people need to take notice.

So from all of here at The Yes Indeed Papers (and by all of us I mean just me), Michael Keaton.....we salute you. Yes indeed.
