That's fine, because there is no role that Michael Caine can play that is more awesome than Michael Caine. But seriously, he was a fantastic Alfred.

He was good. Idk though I still really like Michael Gough's Alfred. Given the same material, I think Gough would've done a kickass job.

I'm ready for a new Alfred though. Alan Rickman YO.

Not necessarily, Alfred is most commonly seen with balding black hair

he doesn't have as iconic of a look without the whiter hair though.

In another world I would have given Michael Nicholson a thumbs up for Alfred.

Honestly, basically any old British dude that's a good actor would be fine as Alfred.

Peter Cushing (with 'tache) would have been Alfred personified.

No, Keith Richards is an overrated musician and an overrated cameo actor. I couldn't stand him in Pirates and i don't see Alfred in him.

I kinda wish Peter Capaldi wasn't cast as The Doctor because I could see him as Alfred. Just imagine how much he would berate Bruce.

If Bruce is 40 in the movie and Alan Rickman is playing an Alfred that's the same age as him (which 67 right now), that'd be an age disparity of around 27 years. In that case, Alfred would have been about 35 years old when he took in the 8 year old Bruce. I think that's totally fine. Why not?
