Washington, Apr 2 : Michael Caine immediately agreed to star in John Huston''s epic 1975 movie `The Man Who Would Be King' after learning his role was first offered to his hero Humphrey Bogart.
Huston met with Caine in Paris and offered him a role in his film, opposite Sir Sean Connery.
However, the director didn''t have to sell the movie hard - he simply explained his first choice was Bogart.
"He said, ''I was originally going to do this with Clark Gable and Humphrey Bogart, but they both passed away on me.'' " Contactmusic quoted Caine, as saying.
"I said, ''I''ll do it.'' Humphrey Bogart was one of my favourite actors and I got to play his part, which I thought was fantastic," he added. (ANI)
