OK, but what does this have to do with movies, other than Ben Kingsley being in some of them?

House of Sand and Fog? All of 4 years. I enjoyed him in Lucky Number Slevin (last year) as well.

No kidding. He was fantastic in that movie. (Every time I hear "Peaches" by The Stranglers I'm always going to be thinking of the opening of Sexy Beast)

I guess the OP thinks he's "Da Man" because he just married a Brazilian woman who's half his age.

I believe that would be...2007, when he was in "You Kill Me". Not great but pretty good.

I loved You Kill Me. Should have had more of an audience. Definitely worth a rental.

C'mon, that movie where he was the vampire king was great because it irritated video game and comic book fanboys at the same time.

I've heard that Ben Kingsley is a real douche. Like no one on a movie crew is allowed to make eye contact or speak to him unless spoken to first. And he won't respond at all unless you call him Sir Ben.

I have heard the same thing. In interviews he comes across as an arrogant prick. He is also one of the actors that when he appeared on Inside the Actor's Studio was clearly in awe of himself. Sir Dickhead more like it.
