When it comes to movie making, there are a number of directors who like to work with the same cast. Whether this is because they see these actors as a good luck charm, or they simply know the actors can perform on cue, returning to the same cast often becomes a signature trait of their films.

And one of these directors is Christopher Nolan, who often likes to carry his cast members over from one film to the next. This includes Michael Caine, who has appeared in eight Nolan-directed movies so far.
