Veteran actor (and star of Batman: The Dark Knight) Michael Caine was on hand (and feet) yesterday to leave his hand and footprints in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA … here are a few pics from his ceremony:
Oscar-winner Michael Caine literally made his mark on Hollywood here Friday, joining the ranks of movie legends who have sunk their hands and feet in concrete outside the famous Chinese Theatre. The 75-year-old actor was honored at a ceremony in front of the Hollywood landmark attended by around 100 guests, including the director of Caine’s next film, the upcoming Batman sequel “The Dark Knight.” Caine, who has twice won best-supporting Oscars for his roles in “Hannah and Her Sisters” and “The Cider House Rules,” plays the caped crusader’s loyal butler Alfred in the keenly anticipated blockbuster, due out on July 18. “It’s the only award of its kind in the world,” Caine told the local ABC7 television network. “I know you get your star on the Hollywood pavement, but there’s only been 192 of these since 1921, so they don’t throw them about, you know?” … Caine has appeared in more than 100 films during a career that has spanned a half-century.
Woot! Much congrats to Michael Caine on this recognition … he is one of those actors that you may not think about very often but are always impressed with when he shows up in a film. He makes a great Alfred in the new Batman franchise … I look forward to seeing him in many future Batman films from here on out. Kudos and congrats again!!!
