Nicolas Cage has been an action star, he has been romantic, he has been a serious actor and now he wants to do a musical. The Oscar winner told Norm Clarke, “I do want to try a musical at some point … (maybe) a version of one of the great musicals, ‘Guys and Dolls’ or ‘Oklahoma!’” Wait doesn’t Oklahoma have nudity in it?
I am still processing the concept of him singing and dancing, so I am not sure how I feel about it. But you never know, he could surprise us just like he surprised me in, one of my all-time favorite movies, City of Angles.
Nicolas Cage was on The Late Show tonight and he told David Letterman about a time that Charlie Sheen and him were on a plane together from LA to SF twenty years ago. It sounds innocent enough but it was anything but for the two bad boys. Cage says that he didn’t know that Sheen had an 8 ball of cocaine wrapped around his ankle. And what Charlie didn’t know is that Nic was going to grab the PA and announce “that I was the pilot and that I was not feeling well and that I was losing control of the aircraft.” Well when they landed, the police were waiting for one of them and can you guess which one it was?
Those two must have great stories, and I want to know more but part of me is thinking whatever little amount of innocence I have left will be gone after I hear them.
UPDATE: Nicolas also denied that picture of man who looks an awful lot like him from the late 1800′s is in fact him on The Late Show. He also claims that he doesn’t drink blood. I would faster believe that is him in the picture than the fact that he doesn’t like down the red stuff?
Nic Cage was given a wax statue of his likeness at Musee Grevin in Paris, France and he had the same reaction as I did when he saw it. That human sized candle looks nothing like him. I don’t know who it looks like, but it is definitely not the Ghost Rider.

Nicolas Cage was filming his upcoming movie The Sorcerer and he was caught eating a cucumber in an interesting way. I don’t know if they were filming a scene for the movie or that is how he really eats a cucumber. Either way I want to know what he is trying to tell us because there something really phallic about the way he is downing that cucumber. I hope he treated it to dinner after he was done wolfing it down because he was so not gentle to it and it deserved a nice meal or at the least a night cap. Poor cucumber…
Not that we needed one, but here is another reason to love Johny Depp. According to Daily Express he is offering to help bail Nicolas Cage out of his financial crisis.
“Johnny called Nic and basically told him not to worry and he’d help him and sort everything out,” says a friend. “Johnny feels he owes his career to Nic and now wants to repay him – if Nic agrees.”
The paper added that back when Depp was a struggling musician, he met Cage who hooked him up with his agent that got him his first big role in Nightmare in Elm Street. Depp never forgot what Cage did for him, so that is why he wants to help him out. I never knew that if it wasn’t for Cage we might never have ever heard of Johnny Depp, so thanks to Nic Cage for that!!! But back to Depp how cool is it, that even 25 years years later he still hasn’t forgotten how he got his start! So many people in Hollywood do, but not our favorite Johnny Depp. He seriously is a good guy and it is just another reason to love him!
