32 Showbiz/Showbiz


Ubiquitous veteran actor Michael Caine and the guy from Hitchcock movie 'Frenzy' Barry Foster. British actors both, they even sound alike. Michael Caine is in so many flicks (Alfie/The Man Who would be King/Batman Begins among dozens of others) that I can't seem to avoid him. In fact, it's so impossible to get away from him that I think he may be watching me. It's uncanny but he seems to have an innate sense of when I'm going to be home or at a bar or someone else's house etc. and will happen to glance at the screen. Then he makes sure he's on there precisely at these moments. Gene Hackman is another guy who seems to be pulling the same trick on me. Do these guys EVER turn down a role? Talk about overexposed!
