The Cheat Sheet

In the last few years, we've seen a ton of new movies being released with famous actor Michael Keaton. Yet it seems that throughout this revival of his reputation, we're still stuck picturing him from his most famous motion pictures, some of them giving him a slightly ridiculous image.

But Keaton is actually quite a capable actor, with many serious and moving roles to his name. Here are just a few that you may have forgotten about.

Mister Rogers Neighborhood

Keaton got one of his first major roles on the beloved children's show as a volunteer, but would actually go one to work as their full-time production assistant. He also hosted the tribute to Fred Rogers in 2004 following the icon's death.

Night Shift

One of the first in a long string of comedies for the rising star, this is often considered one of his most memorable roles. When a young guy working overnight at the morgue is offered the chance to set up a prostitution ring with a former Wall Street stockbroker who is trying to lay low in New York City. A different sort of forbidden romance develops and Keaton mixes the serious with the hilarity rather well in this early stage of his career.
