Caine: 'Heath Terrified Me'
SIR MICHAEL CAINE was so terrified by the late HEATH LEDGER'S chilling depiction of the JOKER in new Batman film THE DARK KNIGHT he forgot his lines. The 75-year-old actor plays a butler in the movie and he admits the star turned him into a wreck when the pair came face to face for a scene. He says, "You think Jack Nicholson in the role and you can't imagine anyone topping him. Heath's just as good in another direction. He's terrifying. "The first time I saw him, we were rehearsing. He comes up in the elevator to me in Batman's flat and raids the place. "And I hadn't seen him, I'd never met him and he comes out screaming and it's like 'wow'. I completely forgot my lines. Scary. It will frighten the life out of people."
