Happy 90th birthday Michael Caine.
His inspiration to become an actor was Hunphrey Bogart. He took his name from the Bogart movie, The Caine Mutiny. I guess Mike Casablanca was taken.
As much as I love Michael in his quiet moments, Caine losing his s**t is one of life’s joys. pic.twitter.com/bpZjUJIbIk
