Michael Keaton on 'Beetlejuice' sequel: 'I would be more than interested' -- VIDEO

No matter where Michael Keaton goes, he’s constantly asked about Beetlejuice and Batman. So it must have been refreshing to appear on this morning’s Today show to promote Need for Speed, his new action movie based on the popular video game. And then Savannah Guthrie asked him about Beetlejuice and Batman, God bless her.

Tim Burton, who directed both 1980s movies, has never hid his enthusiasm for another Beetlejuice, and last fall, he seemed ready to produce or direct a sequel based on a script from screenwriters Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows) and David Katzenberg. It’s sad to contemplate a sequel without Keaton as the gonzo poltergeist, but 24 years later, who knew if Keaton was truly game?

Well, turns out he’s game. “I’ve been talking about it for years and saying it’s the one thing — if I ever did anything again, it would be that, or I’d want to do that,” Keaton told Guthrie. “The rumors would — they’ve risen before and fallen away — and now if Tim [Burton] is involved, and I think he might be involved, if Tim would be involved, I would be more than interested.”

'RoboCop' premiere, On the Scene: 6 epic moments from the black carpet (with bonus Batman!)

The carpet might have been black at the RoboCop reboot’s Los Angeles premiere Monday night, but the festivities were anything but dark. Read on for our favorite moments of the night:

1. Batman shows up dressed as Michael Keaton. That’s right, the caped crusader who’s been in a bit of a cave for the past decade (besides voicing all those Pixar movies) is back and better than ever as the OmniCorp CEO with the fantastic idea of designing a half-man, half-machine police officer to rid Detroit of its criminals. A little robot-making from Mr. Keaton, and the remake of the 1987 sci-fi classic RoboCop is born.

2. Batman meets the new Commissioner Gordon. Gary Oldman rolled onto the carpet at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood with a story about how he and Keaton “pinched each other” when they realized they were both in Batman movies. Oldman said he told Keaton, “You know, I’m Nolan’s last Gordon and you’re Burton’s first Batman.” Keaton played Batman/Bruce Wayne twice, while Oldman played Jim Gordon three times. And oh, Oldman was also Dracula. Pretty awesome.

'Clear History': HBO movie's 'Curb'-iest moments

Watching an HBO one-off starring Larry David and Jon Hamm was such a no-brainer for me that I think I expected to like it too much. Clear History — which first aired Saturday night and is available now on HBO Go — works better as an extended all-star episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm than as a full-length feature.

But would any Curb fan turn down a feature-length episode? Hell to the no! The film’s complicated backstory and confusing arc (are we really to believe the cantankerous Rolly –  basically Larry David playing himself — is considered the nicest guy on Martha’s Vineyard?) can be overlooked if you decide to just sit back and enjoy the performances from David, Hamm, and co-stars Kate Hudson, Amy Ryan, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes, Bill Hader, Michael Keaton, J.B. Smoove, Philip Baker Hall, and an uncredited Liev Schreiber. (Maybe he thought Ray Donovan would put a hit out on him if he figured out he’d jumped from Showtime to HBO to play a long-haired Chechnyan criminal?)

Below, Clear History‘s Curb-iest moments:

'Batman' morph combines every actor into perfect playboy billionaire

bruce-wayneJust when you thought Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, and Christian Bale couldn’t get any more handsome.

Redditor morphinapg has produced an image that combines the features of all five actors who have portrayed Bruce Wayne on the big screen, reports The Hollywood Reporter. The result is, well, a pretty good-looking dude. And probably a billionaire.

But does he possess the childhood trauma and vindictive rage that drives the caped crusader? Alas, such characteristics are only visible within.
