Michael Caine’s Hollywood career is coming to an end.
The award-winning actor, 88, announced on BBC Radio’s Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review on Friday that he was retiring from acting. He made the announcement while discussing his latest onscreen role in the movie “Best Sellers”.
“Strangely enough, this is really my last part. Because I haven’t worked for two years, and I have a problem with my spine, which affects my legs. So I can’t walk very well, ”Cain said.

“And I also wrote a book, a few books, which were published and which were successful. So I’m not an actor anymore, I’m a writer, which is lovely because as an actor you have to get up at 6:30 in the morning and go to the studio. As a writer, you can start writing without getting out of bed, ”Caine added.
Caine plays writer Harris Shaw on “Best Sellers,” which also sees Aubrey Plaza playing his editor, Lucy Stanbridge. Cary Elwes, Ellen Wong and Scott Speedman also star in the film.
Caine then doubled down on his intention to make “Best Sellers” his last acting gig.
“I think it would be [my last role] “, He told the hosts. “There haven’t been any offers, obviously, for two years, because no one has made films that I would like to make. But also, I am 88 years old. There aren’t exactly scripts with a prominent man who’s 88, you know? “
