Yesterday Michael Keaton was finally honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The 64-year-old actor, best known for his role as Batman, gave a crowdpleasing but political speech, mixing self-effacing jokes with a show of support for efforts to improve relations between black communities and police in the United States, according to Yahoo.
Keaton’s career faded a bit when he hung up the cape and cowl after Tim Burton’s Batman Returns in 1992, but it’s bigger than ever these days. He was nominated for an Oscar a couple of years ago for Birdman, was part of the Oscar-winning movie Spotlight, and is now set to play the villain in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.
