There’s no doubt that adorable British actor Sir Michael Caine’s Cockney accent is very recognizable. But replicating it is no easy task. So we’re glad that Michael Caine himself revealed who does the best impression.
Of course, no one does a better Michael Caine impression than Michael Caine himself. But recently, Michael went on the Graham Norton Show and dropped some knowledge on all of us. He gave Graham a card that featured a recording of a pretty spot-on impression, and then told us who really does the best Michael Caine.
Apparently, Tom Hanks’s Michael Caine impression is the best, according to the man himself.
Well, Tom Hanks is an Oscar winner for a reason! You can check out his impression in a 2011 “SNL” sketch here, but if you want to try it for yourself, Graham Norton’s got a tip: Just introduce yourself as “My Cocaine.” But be careful — that can come with some dangerous side effects.
Michael Caine also revealed that some people think he’s a drug dealer because of his name.
If you’re going to do a Caine impression, just be careful who you do it around.
