Nicolas Cage looks like this now, and honestly, we should be happy for him

Premiere Of Quiver Distribution's "Running With The Devil"

Before I saw the photo ID, I saw the photos and I was like “that guy looks vaguely familiar, sort of like a weird funhouse-mirror version of Nicolas Cage.” Yeah. It’s Nicolas Cage. Nick attended the LA premiere of Running With the Devil, which Cage stars in. I just watched the trailer for it and… it actually doesn’t seem like a completely terrible movie? What gives?? It’s about drug running, from the fields to the streets, and Cage plays a middleman. It looks like a straight-up ensemble, sort of like Traffic.

Anyway, this is how Nick Cage looks now. It’s fine. I’m actually sort of happy for him that he’s at this stage of his life and his career where he’s like “f–k it, I’m just growing out my greying beard and I don’t give a sh-t anymore.” It feels like a healthy choice for him. He was also at the premiere with his son Weston Coppola Cage. Weston really takes after Nick, right?

Cage was also recently in Toronto for the TIFF premiere of Color Out of Space, his latest sci-fi/horror/something. It actually got great reviews? As the NY Post notes, Cage seems to be having a moment this year. It was just last month that Cage gave that absolutely bonkers interview to the NY Times too. Who knew that 2019 would be The Year of Cage??

    That 1993 wolf coat is everything.

    If he’s healthy and settled, I’m happy for him. He’s a great actor and I’m sure he’d rather be known for his work and not the dumpster fire his life has been for so many years.

    • smcollins says:

      I completely agree. I keep hoping that he gets his big comeback, and is taken seriously again as an actor. I can’t help but root for him!

  3. Fluffy Princess says:

    Wow, Weston cut his hair! He’s had such long (and beautiful!) hair forever! His son is handsome.

    Nicolas Cage — still hanging in there no matter what. I always wonder how he gets hired for projects considering his well noted wacky ways.

    • Lila says:

      Beautiful hair 😍 I forgot what his face looked like but I remember the hair!

    • Megan says:

      He gets projects because stans like me keep showing up, even when I know the movie is a hot mess. Looks like I might get treated to some good stuff this year. LOL

  4. Grant says:

    His son is very handsome! I hope things have improved between the two of them because IIRC, there was lots of drama a few years back.

  5. savu says:

    I thought it was Mel Gibson!

  6. JennyJenny says:

    We’ve been on a Nic Cage movie marathon lately; searching for any of his films on Netflix, etc.
    I’ll confess ~ I just love him! I’ll watch anything he’s in.

  7. Chimney says:

    Love Nic Cage, he’s a terrific actor. I suspect that this look is for a role but I could be wrong. Happy for him either way! I’m really excited for Color out of Space, hopefully it is good spooky fun

  8. Bella Bella says:

    His son doesn’t look anything like him.

  9. Mandy says:

    It’s the EYES.

  10. Chaine says:

    Both he and his son have given rise to a lot of drama in recent years. I hope they’re both doing better now.

  11. SJR says:

    Hey, no harm no foul. I like Nic Cage. I still watch Con Air if I run across it.
    Nic has to be mid 50’s and if he is moving into a “accept myself as I age” phase..more power to him.
    The son has stunning eyes.

  12. Jekelly says:

    I sorta wish he’d make another national treasure movie.

    • Fluffy Princess says:

      I think those movies are some of his best in the last 15 years are so. Who ever directed them, reigned him in and kept him focused, and brought out a lot of that charm that made him so famous when he was starting out.

      I will always be a “stan” for his performance in Valley Girl. Still one of my all-time favorite movies.

  13. jules says:

    i see something a little tim allen in that last photo? just me?

  14. Nancypants says:

    Yeah, they have both been a mess for quite awhile now but Nic looks pretty good for an old fart.
    He’s not that old.
    Born in 1964 but LOOKS older.
    His middle name is Kim and his last name is Coppola.
    I forget that sometimes.

    He kind of has that Robert Redford, wild West thing going on in these photos and his son cleans up well and he does look like new Aquaman’s son but if you look closely, they have similar features.

    Raising Arizona is one of the funniest movies ever and Matchstick Men was good and barely seen. Moonstruck and Con Air….classic.
    I’m hoping he goes on for many more years minus the shrucken heads and dinosaur bones strewn about his house.

  15. Savannah says:

    He always looks like a chronically drunk hamster who is in a desperate need of a B12 shot and a nap.

  16. Socks says:

    Am I confusing him with someone else? Was he just married for, like, 3 days a couple months ago?
    Isn’t his son a hot mess?

  17. Silvie says:

    I just rewatched Moonstruck last weekend. My god, young Nic Cage was so hot.
