I normally see actors who sometimes say that they are old and not beeing frequently featured in movies but the moment such actors are featured they are a delight to watch...just wondering is it possible for actors to retire?

Actors dont need to retire.Acting is a profession for life although an actor must be intelegent enough to change with time,i mean one can not be superman at 60 he can suerly be superman's father.So as long as the actor is flexible and as long as the viewers are ok with the actor,he/she should continue.

But we still find a role for them no matter their age and not minding how bent they walk! I think its a bit hard.

Yes, when they reach a certain age, I am sure that they can retire.. But some actors still continue to act. I am wondering if James Bond is still alive.. I am surprised to see him at this age. He was a real hunk to the ladies in all of his movies..

Hmmm....they can say they are retired but I guess acting will still always be in their veins? Thus, I think it's very hard for them to reject when the scripts come to them - a very small role that's all in the beginning might get the whole ball rolling again, don't you think? Haha
