Michael Keaton on ‘Dopesick,’ Making the Switch to Television

At the event, which Distractify attended virtually, Michael praised television, which did not have the best reputation among A-list actors just a few years ago, and gave some insight into why he is taking a break from film.

“Where television has a big advantage… the beauty of television is you can delve, and you can drill down and develop it over time,” Michael said. “Pound for pound, television has gotten so good.”

Before playing Batman, Michael got his start on television. He first appeared on the children’s program Mister Roger’s Neighborhood before landing a role alongside Jim Belushi on Working Stiffs, which got him discovered by Ron Howard and launched his movie career.

Now, the Beetlejuice actor is ready to come back to the small screen.
