Michael Caine Trapped in the Closet, Er, Dressing Room

Michael Caine, 79, was filming Now You See Me in an old theater when, after a long day of filming, he decided to head upstairs to a makeshift dressing room to take a nap. Old people, amirite?

“It had been a long day of filming and Michael decided to slip upstairs to a makeshift dressing area and catch 40 winks.

“When Michael eventually woke up, he realised he was locked in. His mobile phone was in his trailer and there was no electricity in the attic, meaning he couldn’t see a thing. It was pitch black.

“Michael started shouting for help but no one could hear him. It was only when an on-set carpenter who had left his tools in the theatre went to do some maintenance work the following morning that he was discovered. It’s fair to say Michael wasn’t in the best of moods – although he was grateful to have been found.” Guardian

Thank god it wasn’t a closet or else Michael would be turning it into a 200 chapter hip-hop opera like R. Kelly. Though, admittedly, that would be kind of cool.
