Best known for his role as Bruce Wayne in the '60s TV series "Batman," West now plays Cat Man on the Nick cartoon show "Fairly Odd Parents."
But West is probably best known these days for his recurring role as Mayor Adam West on "Family Guy."
West, who turns 80 in September, has hardly faded away. While he's appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows over the last 40 years, it was his Batman role in the late '60s that still pads his pocket. In fact, you can get Bat Greetings and ring tones for your cell phone through West's web site, which opens with the theme from "Batman."
West was born William West Anderson but changed his name when he moved to Hollywood in 1959.
