Somehow he managed to bag a television role and appeared in several episodes of ‘Mister Rogers' Neighborhood’. He was a naturally gifted actor and soon became a popular television star. He embarked on a film career with great ambitions and found considerable fame with his comedic roles and earned even greater acclaim when he portrayed the eponymous superhero in Tim Burton's ‘Batman’.
