Actor Michael Caine (88) Nuances Retirement: “Roles are not available at my age”

Cain, among other things, explains to the Daily Mail that he doesn’t say goodbye to the movie world itself, but that there are often a few roles written for older actors.

“I’ve been offered a few roles in the last two years because nobody makes movies that I want to be in when I’m 88,” Kane said. “There is no abundance of texts exactly with the 88-year-old main character.”

Kane also stresses that he won’t disappear from the public stage anyway. He wants to remain active as a writer for a while, having written his memoirs, among other things.

“I have written a number of successful books. So I no longer see myself as an actor but as an author. This is great because as an actor you have to get up at 5:30 in the morning and go to the studio, but as a writer, you can start without getting out of bed.”

Sir Michael Caine has in recent years worked in two major film productions in the 1980s: Dunkirk (2017) and Tenet (2020). British director Christopher Nolan, who directed both films, should definitely call on him for a small role. He just wants to make him an exception. Kane and Nolan have a special bond: since 2005, the actor has played in every Nolan movie.

In his long career, Michael Caine has been nominated for an Academy Award 6 times. He is one of three actors who have been nominated for an Academy Award in five different decades, along with Jack Nicholson and Paul Newman. Kane has won an Academy Award twice: in 1986 for Best Supporting Actor for “Hannah and Her Sisters,” and the second in 1999 for “Cedre House Rules.” He has been an Officer of the Order of the British Empire since 2000.
