Oscar Winner Sir Michael Caine Says His Latest Movie, “Best Sellers,” Is Probably His Last


Sir Michael Caine says his latest movie, “Best Sellers,” is probably his last. He considers himself retired. No! I won’t accept it!

He tells a UK radio show, “There haven’t been any other offers for two years.”

What?? The epitome of suave, Caine is one of the greatest actors alive. He won his first Oscar in 1987 for Woody Allen’s “Hannah and Her Sisters.” Her second one came in 2000 for “The Cider House Rules.” His credits are long and prestigious with his most famous movies like “Alfie,” “Sleuth,” and “Educating Rita.”

Caine turned 88 last March. He has the same birthday as Quincy Jones, and they often celebrate together. I really hope someone offers him a good role quick. We need Michael Caine on screen!
