I do this Nicholas Cage thing where I furrow my brow and say "I'm confuuused" in a Nic Cage voice and I've been doing it for so long that I forget if I got it from an actual Cage performance or someone impersonating him or?? Is this like a thing or did I make it up?

let's cut the chit-chat, A-HOLE!

"Are you desirable? Are you irresistible? Maybe if you drank bourbon with me, it would help. Maybe if you kissed me and I could taste the sting in your mouth it would help. If you drank bourbon with me naked. If you smelled of bourbon as you fucked me, it would help. It would increase my esteem for you. If you poured bourbon onto your naked body and said to me "drink this". If you spread your legs and you had bourbon dripping from your breasts and your pussy and said "drink here" then I could fall in love with you. Because then I would have a purpose. To clean you up and that, that would prove that I'm worth something. I'd lick you clean so that you could go away and fuck someone else."

wtf is with his total lack of sideburns? for some reason, it really creeps me out that he has this abnormal-looking hairlessness where his sideburns should be.

maybe his current lack of sideburns is to distinguish the man now from the man he was?

Zandalee, an otherwise completely forgettable direct-to-video "thriller" contains Cage delivering the following line, which has been lodged in my brain, verbatim since seeing it some 15 years ago:

"When you see that big red snatch comin' at you like a freight train, yeah, it's pretty exciting."

I think he was saying this to Judge Reinhold.

Saw a preview for an older Nic Cage movie the other night (i.e. he has "new wave haircut") - called Birdy, that seemed like he had a retarded friend and they both got sent to Vietnam and end up traumatized. Anybody seen it?

it's solid. i'd say it's pretty much exactly what you'd expect from the ads, but at the same time doesn't deliver on the premise to the extent that it could've. Cage is pretty subdued in it, but Heard is surprisingly credible in a tricky role. the main heavy sucks, but Fichtner owns. david morse cameo. needs to be seen in 3d.

"It was two in the morning. I was living in Orange County at the time and was asleep with my wife. My two-year old at the time was in another room. I opened my eyes and there was a naked man wearing my leather jacket eating a Fudgesicle in front of my bed," he told reporters on Wednesday.

"I know it sounds funny ... but it was horrifying."

A Fudgesicle is a frozen, ice cream-like snack.

On my costume, my leather jacket, I would sew in ancient, thousands-of-years-old Egyptian relics, and gather bits of tourmaline and onyx and would stuff them in my pockets to gather these energies together and shock my imagination into believing that I was augmented in some way by them, or in contact with ancient ghosts. I would walk on the set looking like this, loaded with all these magical trinkets, and I wouldn't say a word to my co-stars or crew or directors. I saw the fear in their eyes, and it was like oxygen to a forest fire. I believed I was the Ghost Rider.

I would like to hook up with one of the great Japanese filmmakers, like the master that made Ringu, and I would like to take The Wicker Man to Japan, except this time he's a ghost.

This style, if you will, or programme, is really teaching how not to act, and how to utilise your dreams, power objects, even taking weekends to experiment with imagination and finding ways of infusing your performances with those experiences so that it's no longer acting but truth. Acting implies lying in some way - Olivier said as much in his autobiography, and I don't want to lie. Thankfully Sean Penn said that Nicolas Cage is no longer an actor, and that's what I want. I want to find a way to make it more truthful. This style is stimulating your imagination to be more truthful in the words and the movements.

Cage, if deals close, would star as actor Nicolas Cage. The character is desperate to get a role in a new Tarantino movie while also dealing with a strained relationship with his teenage daughter. He also occasionally talks to an egotistical 1990s version of himself who rides him for making too many crappy movies and for not being a star anymore.

The Cage character is also under a mountain of debt and finds himself forced to make an appearance at the birthday party of a Mexican billionaire who happens to be a fan of Cage’s work and secretly hopes to show him a script on which he’s been working.

While he bonds with the man, Cage is informed by the CIA that the billionaire is actually a drug cartel kingpin who has kidnapped the daughter of a Mexican presidential nominee and is recruited by the U.S. government to get intelligence. The situation spirals even more dramatically when the Mexican brings over Cage’s daughter and his ex-wife for a reconciliation, and when their lives are on the line, Cage takes on the role of a lifetime.

El Tomboto, Saturday, 16 November 2019 04:45 (one year ago) link

It doesn't sound a million miles from JCVD, but on a more epic scale. I hope there's a scene where he reveals that he didn't want to say "who burned the toast", and he didn't realise the cameras were running when he said "vive la fuckin' France", and that Werner Herzog told him that all the audio for Bad Lieutenant was being dubbed in post, so he just delivered placeholder lines, and that he was goaded into overacting. And that deep down he plays with model trains, just like ordinary men.

Given the fact that pop stars often give private concerts for billionaires, I wonder if Nicolas Cage actually does do private Shakespeare readings for rich people, and if he has to rewrite Shakespeare so that it has "blue" language such as fucking etc.
