Beetlejuice Cast: Where Are They Now?

Tim Burton‘s twisted comedy fantasy, Beetlejuice, has gone down in cinema history as one of the wackiest movies from the 80s. The story follows a recently deceased couple, Adam and Barbara Maitland (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis), who find themselves trapped in their home as ghosts. In an attempt to scare away the new residents that have taken over their property, the Maitlands enlist the help of a mischievous and flamboyant spirit named Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton). However, things do not go according to plan when they realize that Beetlejuice is not the savior they hoped for. So, they must now find a way to stop him before more chaos ensues.

After a string of short films and TV movies, it was Beetlejuice that put Tim Burton on the map as the next big director in Hollywood. The next year, Burton released the blockbuster hit, Batman. However, Beetlejuice was by no means overshadowed. It is still revered by cinephiles today, and has even spawned a sequel due for release in 2024. So, let’s take a deep dive into the star-studded cast that helped make Beetlejuice so popular and where they are now.

After a long stint in TV, Michael Keaton burst onto the big screen in Ron Howard‘s zany odyssey movie, Night Shift. From here, he went on to star in the John Hughes‘ scribed comedy, Mr. Mom. So, by the time Beetlejuice was released, Keaton was a fully-fledged comedy star. However, he soon shifted gears. In 1988, he reinvented himself as an action star when he re-teamed with Tim Burton for Batman.

After falling of the radar slightly in the early 2000s, Keaton made an epic comeback with his Oscar nominated role in Birdman. This critically acclaimed rendition gave a new lease of life to Keaton’s career. From here, he has gone on to star in the Oscar winning drama, Spotlight. Furthermore, he gave the performance of his career in the thought-provoking series Dopesick. After such a career revival, Keaton is showing no signs of slowing down. He is set to reprise his role as Beetlejuice in 2024, and he portrayed Bruce Wayne once again in the 2023 smash hit, The Flash
