British Oscar-winning actor Michael Caine has announced the end of his acting career.
On October 6th, the movie "The Great Escaper" was released, in which Caine played the lead role. He announced on BBC Radio 4 that this film was the last in his career.
I keep saying I'm going to retire. Well I am now. The only parts I'm liable to get now are 90-year-old men. Or maybe 85. They're not going to be the lead. You don't have leading men at 90, you're going to have young handsome boys and girls. So I thought, I might as well leave with all this.In "The Great Escaper", Michael Caine portrays Bernard Jordan - an 89-year-old WWII veteran who made headlines in 2014 after escaping from a retirement home to attend the anniversary of the allied forces landing in Normandy.
Caine has appeared in over 130 films. He's a two-time Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actor for the films "Cider House Rules" by Lasse Hallström and "Hannah and Her Sisters" by Woody Allen.
In November, Caine will release his debut detective novel "Deadly Game".
