Michael Keaton's Tribute to David Letterman: "I Can't Tell You How Much I'm Going to Miss This"

"You were some kid in Indiana with a paper route just living life," Keaton said, gesturing to the Letterman's audience, "and look what you are. I mean it. It's extraordinary."

With David Letterman's last show less than a month away, Michael Keaton took the time Tuesday night to offer a brief tribute to the late-night legend.

"When he showed up in L.A., everyone knew it," Keaton said on the Late Show. "He was so funny and fast. It was so clear how bright and funny [he was]. He had this great Midwestern thing. ... We became friends, and you've been consistently a friend. ... Look, you had a paper route. Look at this!"

"You were some kid in Indiana with a paper route just living life," Keaton said, gesturing to the Letterman's audience, "and look what you are. I mean it. It's extraordinary."

"Congratulations. ... I can't tell you how much I'm going to miss this."
 
Letterman's final show is scheduled to air on May 20.
