Sir Michael Caine will turn eighty next year, yet he still makes a habit of appearing in two or three films every year. He’s not known for turning down work, and he hardly takes a break from acting. But considering what happened when he took a break on the set of Now You See Me (also starring Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg and Morgan Freeman), he might be onto something with his “no break” policy.
The Dark Knight Rises actor was in his dressing room, which was in the attic of an old New Orleans theater, and fell asleep for what he intended to be a quick nap. The staff figured that Caine had left for the evening and locked up the theater for the night — trapping the Oscar-winner in the attic — which had no electricity!
Caine was without his cell phone (it was in his trailer, where he was supposed to be after filming) and he was not discovered in the attic until the next morning by a carpenter. He “reportedly was not in the best of moods, although grateful for being found.”
Hmm… I’m pretty sure “locking Michael Caine in the attic” is a surefire way to lose a production staff job on a film. As for you actors out there, watch where you take a nap on set!
