Michael Caine

Brad Pitt Is Batman's Next Alfred

... If I Had My Pick

EXCLUSIVE

112113_michael_caine_launchBrad Pitt would be the perfect man-servant for Ben Affleck in the new Batman vs. Superman movie ... so says Sir Michael Caine, who played Alfred in the last movie.

TMZ spoke with Sir Michael outside Craig’s in Weho last night … and he suggested that a younger man fill his shoes in the upcoming movie … and officially nominated BP for the role of Alfred J. Pennyworth.

Not sure how Brad would feel about dry-cleaning the Bat-suit and scrubbing down the Bat-cave while Ben’s out saving the day … but it would definitely add some sex appeal to the role.

Or maybe Michael Caine can just play Alfred forever … please.

This will undoubtedly be the worst Batman movie ever! Ben Affleck isn't even a good actor, let alone a believable Batman.

"Alfred" is the person who raised Bruce Wayne after his parents died. Do you know how much aging they would have to do to make Brad Pitt look old enough to have raised Ben Affleck? Yeah. Real eye candy there.

I think they should cast Emmanuel Lewis as Alfred.

Why Pitt? This makes NO sense at all. Maybe Donald Sutherland or Patrick Stewart. Pitt is much too young for such a position.

The movie's gonna bomb with Affleck so it does matter who else they cast, best thing to do would be to cast someone willing to work for a free sandwich or scale.

Dude from our film school wrote MR/MRS. SMITH.

As a thesis script.

Brad Pitt's dead-pan in that film alone.

HAS to go down as some of the greatest dark comedy we've ever seen.

Pitt's never gotten the acclaim he's deserved as one of our all-time great actors/leading men.

Stole the show in THELMA AND LOUISE - you couldn't play that role with any more sleaze that B.P. bought.

Michael Caine's also one of our all-timers - and his generosity and kindness and class -

Shine through even on a statement like this -

When he defers to Brad co-teaming with Ben-Aff.

Of course B-Aff/B-Pitt would be magical together -

But Michael Caine will sizzle, bring something unique and special to this role.

It's people like Caine, Affleck and Pitt - that made me wanna come here in the first place.

Legends all...

Reminds us that Brad Pitt can play one of the greatest villains - as he did in THELMA AND LOUISE -

Making you actually LIKE the guy.

WHILE he's ripping the girls off !!!

Think I might write something called:

"THELMA AND LOUISE DUDE"

Re: what happens to Pitt AFTER Thelma/Louise die.

I'm thinking he does something VERY sleazy.

To capitalize on that - exploit that tragedy.

_______________________________

You make a good point - I get what you're saying.

But I THINK what M-Caine has in mind?

Alfred written differently - younger guy -

Knows the weaponry - where everything's stored -

How to blow up the Universe should it come down to that -

If you've ever seen FIGHT CLUB -

You know Brad Pitt's the EXACT right choice.

To destroy Mankind.

We have to read INTO what the Michael Caine's say.

USE OUR IMAGINATION as to what he actually MEANS.
