View Comments It’s Michael Keaton on Broadway! Sort of. The film star’s newest project, Birdman, puts him center stage on the Great White Way. In the flick, Keaton plays Riggan Thomson, a past-his-prime actor, known for his portrayal of iconic superhero Birdman. Overcoming family issues, including dealing with a fresh out of rehab daughter (played by Emma Stone), Riggan prepares for a big comeback…on Broadway at the St. James Theatre. Birdman, in addition to Keaton and Stone, stars Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan and Zach Galifianakis. Take a look at the trailer below (warning: there’s a bit of bad language) and see how many Broadway landmarks you can spot! The film is set to premiere on October 17.
