Michael Keaton And Jimmy Fallon Read Children's Scripts For 'Birdman'
The dark comedy/drama, "Birdman," staring Michael Keaton was released last year and has been drawing in attention lately with the upcoming Academy Awards. It has been nominated for multiple Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor (Michael Keaton).
On a recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy brought Michael Keaton on to discuss his role and read a few scenes...but there was a twist: the scenes were written by little kids that were asked to write scripts after being given only the directive that they needed to be titled "Birdman."
These scripts are great, and have a lot of humor in them. The guys have a hard time keeping straight faces as they read through their lines. It really is interesting to see how the children go for emotion in their writing and, if it wasn't for some of the absurd humor, they would do a pretty good job achieving it. Check them out to see the interesting scripts these kids have written.
