The Real Comeback of the Fake Michael Keaton: Scenes From the Birdman Set

Like Riggan, though, Keaton — already the subject of Best Actor buzz following Birdman’s ecstatic reception at the Venice Film Festival in August — seems ready for a resurgence. “If you look at my age and how long I’ve been acting, I’m way behind in terms of the amount of films compared to my peers,” he said before getting off the line. “But I’m in the mood to work these days.” Next, he’ll star in Thomas McCarthy’s Spotlight as a Boston Globe editor investigating a Catholic sex-abuse scandal. “It’s a really good cast and a really good script. You might think they’re around all the time, but they’re just not, so I grabbed it. It’s hard to say no.”
