Speculations about Caine’s retirement began to circulate on Friday, when the senior actor spoke about the state of his career on the BBC radio program Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review. “Funnily enough, it has turned out to be my last part, really,” he said of his role in “Best Sellers.” “Because I haven’t worked for two years, and I have a spine problem which affects my leg, so I can’t walk very well.”
Caine continued to talk about his alternate passion for writing, “I wrote a book, a couple of books, which were published and successful. So, I’m now not an actor; I’m a writer. Which is lovely because as an actor, you have to get up at half-past six in the morning and go to the studio. As a writer, you can start writing without leaving the bed!”
