He is a native Walla Wallan and a graduate of Whitman College. He is also without a doubt a television icon. Adam West, who played Batman in the 1960s, is held in high esteem in the Eastern Washington town that I grew up in. He apparently has staying power worldwide, a Facebook fan page where West frequently contributes has almost 50,000 participants.

Last year, a page wanting Betty White to host SNL went viral and earned White an invitation to host the show, perhaps Adam West will be the next star of yesteryear to do so.
