Michael Keaton Wraps Up Very Serious Commencement Speech With “I’m Batman”

It's that time of year where students are graduating from college, which means some of the bigger schools are getting big names to give the commencement speech.

The legendary actor, 66, delivered the commencement address at Kent State University on Saturday, a university where he studied journalism in the early 1970s.

During the week, the actor delivered the commencement address at Kent State University's graduation ceremony, where he was an alum.

In the original draft, Keaton ended with three words, but considering the seniors were born in the '90s (I feel ancient), they probably think "Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice" is a mixed drink. He had this to say.

"I've got one more thing to say and it'll only take me a second, and I've got two words that I want you all to remember", he said, capping off his almost 20-minute-long speech.

As he got to the end of his speech, he encouraged students to "be generous, be fair, be courageous and be yourself" but the most powerful line was his final two words.
