Nicolas Cage and his giant capped teeth and new “tousled-look” weave were on Good Morning America yesterday. First I have to point out the lady to the far left in this shot of “fans” shown on camera. (photo below.) She’s so thrilled to be there and she stands like that the whole time. (You can see her at around :25 in on the video above and here.)
Cage is promoting his role in Season of The Witch, yet another supernatural POS thriller that is sure to make a ton of bank for a dude who will blow through it like water.
Cage called playing a knight a “dream come true” and explained how he learned how to ride a horse for the role.
Rob Ron Perlman (Of “Sons of Anarchy”) co-stars, and Cage agreed with Robin Roberts that it’s a “buddy movie” and says he had a great time with Perlman on set.
Cage alluded to his extreme money problems by sort-of blaming other people for them. He didn’t say anything outright, but you can tell that’s what he’s talking about.
Robin: It’s also about your character seeking redemption. Is there any way that you relate to that, anything that you’ve gone through in your life that helped you relate to that?
Cage: Oh yeah, everybody makes mistakes as far as being human. When we make mistakes I think sometimes it can be a great lesson because it puts you into looking for something.
Some people say you have to be a sinner before you can be a saint. And if you’re a good person you’re going to make mistakes because you trust people and some people will lead you in the wrong direction. But if you can learn from it, but I’ve had those experiences and it helped me.
“I see myself as subscribing to the Lon Chaney school… and I believe that historically… stage actors have always tried to transform themselves. I don’t wear a wig in my personal life or in my public life, but… I like the idea of giving the audience something else to make it eclectic.”
So weaves and hair plugs don’t count I suppose.
Lon Chaney was a silent movie actor called “the man of a thousand faces.”
My husband can’t stand Nicolas Cage, but I can tolerate him. He’s not my favorite actor by any means. How does he keep churning out these crap movies and making big bucks though? I really thought the guy would have seen his come uppance by now. It’s all everyone else’s fault that he lost money while owning mansions and castles, animals so exotic they required anti-venom, and throwing Gatsby-style parties. And he’s still starring in crap movies that people pay good money to see. He’s so full of sh*t. At least he doesn’t drive drunk or mistreat his wife I guess.
Here’s Cage at the premiere of Season of The Witch yesterday. (With dark hair) Credit: WENN.com. He’s shown at Comicon in July for comparison. (Light hair.) His hairline has naturally moved ahead an inch in six months. He’s using Ronco spray hair, isn’t he? That’s not a wig, right? He looked better before.
