Michael Caine

Born: March 14, 1933, Rotherhithe, London - England

Sir Michael Caine, CBE is an English actor, producer, and author.

Renowned for his distinctive working-class cockney accent, Caine has appeared in over 115 films and is regarded as a British film icon.

He made his breakthrough in the 1960s with starring roles in British films, including “Zulu” (1964), “The Ipcress File” (1965), “Alfie” (1966), for which he was nominated for an Academy Award, “The Italian Job” (1969), and “Battle of Britain” (1969).

His most notable roles in the 1970s included “Get Carter” (1971), “The Last Valley” (1971), “Sleuth” (1972), for which he earned his second Academy Award nomination, “The Man Who Would Be King” (1975), and “A Bridge Too Far” (1977).

He achieved some of his greatest critical success in the 1980s, with “Educating Rita” (1983), earning him the BAFTA and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. In 1986, he received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Woody Allen's “Hannah and Her Sisters”.

Caine played Ebenezer Scrooge in “The Muppet Christmas Carol” (1992). This was his first starring role in several years, which led to a career resurgence in the late 1990s, receiving his second Golden Globe Award for his performance in “Little Voice” in 1998 and receiving his second Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for “The Cider House Rules” the following year.

Caine played Nigel Powers in the 2002 parody Austin Powers in “Goldmember”, and Alfred Pennyworth in Christopher Nolan's “The Dark Knight” Trilogy.

He appeared in several other of Nolan's films including “The Prestige” (2006), “Inception” (2010), “Interstellar” (2014) and a minor (voice-only) role in “Dunkirk” (2017).

He also appeared as a supporting character in Alfonso Cuarón's “Children of Men” and Pixar's 2011 film “Cars 2”.

As of February 2017, films in which he has starred have grossed over $3.5 billion domestically and over $7.8 billion worldwide. Caine is ranked as the twelfth highest grossing box office star.

Caine is one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting in every decade from the 1960s to the 2000s (the other one being Jack Nicholson; Laurence Olivier was also nominated for an acting Academy Award in five different decades, beginning in 1939 and ending in 1978).

Caine appeared in seven films that featured in the British Film Institute's 100 greatest British films of the 20th century.

In 2000, Caine received a BAFTA Fellowship and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of his contribution to cinema.

He was married to actress Patricia Haines from 1955 to 1962. They have a daughter, Dominique (who was named after the heroine of the novel The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand).

Caine has been married to actress and model Shakira Baksh since 8 January 1973. They met after Caine saw her appearing in a Maxwell House coffee commercial and a friend gave him her telephone number. He called her every day for ten days until she finally agreed to meet him. They have a daughter, Natasha Haleema.

Rather than being vengeful, however, Andrew professes hes glad to be rid of his troublesome spouse. To avoid paying heavy alimony, Andrew suggests that Milo disguise himself as a clown and steal his wifes expensive jewelry. That way Marguerite and Milo can obtain financial security while Andrew claims the loss on his insurance and all walk away rich. Andrews plan is a devious one, however, designed to toy with his wifes lover, and a series of deceptions and counter-deceptions are launched in which nothing is as it seems.
