The immortal hands and feet of Alfred Pennyworth

No, that’s not the title of a Batman spin-off about Alfred’s dalliances in the martial arts.

Though I’d go see it if it were.


On Friday, Sir Michael Caine will dip his hands and feet in the cement in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles:

Sir Michael Caine to Be Honored with Hand and Footprint Ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre Friday, July 11

The ceremony begins at 11:30, and Christopher Nolan (who directed Caine in The Prestige, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight) will also be in attendance.

I’ll actually be arriving in Los Angeles at 10:10 for the first day of a 10-day vacation/business trip (with detours to Santa Barbara and Las Vegas that I’ll tell you about later in the week, except for the Las Vegas part that I might not be able to talk about because it’s potentially top secret), so maybe I can make it to this.

Kareem? Kyle? What do you guys think? Can we make it?

(And Kareem, Hellboy II is on and I’ve got a much clearer picture of the schedule. I’ll call you tonight.)
