Adam West

Adam West (born September 19, 1928 in Walla Walla, Washington) is the actor who played the role of Batman on the original television program that ran from 1966 to 1968. After the show ended West was typecast as Batman and had trouble playing other roles because audience identified him as Batman and no one else.

West later made a semi-regular appearance on the Fox animated series Family Guy, on which he played himself as the mayor of Quahog, Rhode Island. This Adam West character was somewhat quirky, perhaps reflecting and reinforcing the television audiences' perceptions of West since his role as Batman.
