Look no further than the following concrete reasons behind Nicolas Cage’s greatness.


He appreciates the finer things in life

He once did mushrooms with his cat

After the experience, he told David Letterman that he "had no doubt that [the cat] was his brother."

He may or may not be a vampire from the 1870s

or Thor

or the Virgin Mary

or a British soldier during the War of 1812

or Spongebob

or Mexican War of Independence leader Miguel Hidalgo

or a black man from the 1970's


He was once stalked by a mime

"I was being stalked by a mime—silent, but maybe deadly. Somehow, this mime would appear on the set and start doing strange things. Finally, the producers took some action and I haven't seen the mime since. But it was definitely unsettling."

He makes a great desktop background

This somehow happened to him

He looks suspiciously like an owl

He has a pet octopus

It was part of a "$276,000 spending spree that included two king cobras and an octopus. He claimed that he bought the octopus because it would help him with his acting."

He has a tattoo of Woody the Woodpecker

He'll help you wake up in the morning

And he can help get you a job

He isn't afraid to take what he wants

From Kathleen Turner's biography:

"He was arrested, I think, once for stealing a dog. He'd come across a chihuahua he liked and stuck it in his jacket."

He was originally every single member of the Avengers

He once went crazy in Romania

After leaving a club in the country while promoting "Ghost Rider," he got into a fight with his friend and ran through the streets yelling “I thought we were brothers, man,” and “I’ll die in the name of honor.”

He can help teach you biology if you're in Serbia





And once more in Spanish

He bought, and plans to be buried in this pyramid tomb


He got Johnny Depp his first acting gig

"I said, 'I really think you are an actor, that you have that ability.' That was just from playing one game of Monopoly with him."

He's everyone's favorite Pokemon

His middle name is Kim

He was born Nicolas Kim Coppola.

And he takes his stage name from the superhero Luke Cage

In fact, he loves comic books so much that his son's name is "Kal-El"

Superman's name as a boy.

He gets really into his roles

He combines to form Voltron

He played a fry cook in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"

He once gave a chameleon a cigarette

He once ate a cockroach - three times in a row

It was while filming the movie "Vampire's Kiss". The scene took three tries.


He looks great as a cholo

Because, honestly, these movies

And because of this picture

Oooh, racist comments, cute . . .

He has had a tremendous influence on the acting community and his legacy of work will far outlive his financial fiascos. Bravo Nick Cage, bravo.

Well... I just hope that he has been taking every script offered to him to pay off those back taxes... cuz when I see his face in a movie trailer I just think "Well that'll be shit"...
