Michael Caine Confirmed for an Appearance in Inception
Just yesterday we announced that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was the latest great actor to join the cast of Christopher Nolan's sci-fi action film Inception. We still don't know anything about it (any ideas anyone?), but we do now know that Michael Caine will be in it, too. The actor revealed to In Contention that he as a "little part in it." Obviously not enough of a part for them to write up a whole press release for, but he's definitely in it! "Chris and I are very good friends so I'll do that little part. I think I'll work about three days. It'll be extraordinary, wait until you see this one. I think if I say another word he's going to kill me!"
Caine has starred in all three of Chris Nolan's last movies. It'll be great to see him back in this, even if it's just for a few scenes. Knowing that the plot has something to do with grad students and a CEO-type played by Leonardo DiCaprio, maybe Caine will play some sort of wise professor or something? The characters that Nolan writes for Caine are always wonderful - of course we've got Alfred, but I also really loved his character in The Prestige. It's funny to say, but I'm looking forward to Inception purely based on the cast, even without knowing anything about the plot. But that's because Christopher Nolan is a phenomenal filmmaker!
