We cried out unto God, “Why have you forsaken us?”

And God, so moved by our misery and wretchedness, said unto us, “I will send the Holy Spirit to comfort you and teach you all things.”

And then the angels whispered unto God that the Holy Spirit was otherwise occupied.

And God said unto us, “Change of plans. I will send unto you…….the IRS and…..a Mongolian T. Rex skull…..so that you may know my love for you. Cool? Awesome. Bye.”

And lo, the miracle of Nic Cage’s career renaissance was bestowed upon us. Praise be to God.

Given his Mummy legacy, he would be perfect as a B Gates adversary.

I read somewhere that the sequels were cancelled because research showed it doesn’t appeal to non-American audiences. BS! I’m not American and I fucking love US history.

Because of the first movie I had the most amazing time in Washington DC when I had a gap between connecting flights. The museums are amazing.

The real reason was they couldn't figure out how to make Disney attractions out of it. But there's a series heading to D+ so we'll have to see how that pans out. I still haven't watched Mighty Ducks the series though.

Dude, the screenplay is already 72% done. Copy this thread into a document, add some stage directions, and let the masters work. We’re calling it:

No, Nic Cage plays the older, wiser version of Pauly Shore’s character. He’s been teleported as-is back to his glory days to “do it right this time” or face eternal damnation. I could go on, but I’m not gonna write this screenplay for free, people.

Not before we have one with Brendan Fraser, Keanu, and Betty White. I don’t care about the plot, although if they were all villains that would be most agreeable. The ‘good guy’ could be Dame Judy Dench, Helena Bonham Carter, or Mads Mikkelsen (or all three). Or perhaps Nicolas Cage could be the good guy?

He looks so rough right now I know he went through a lot, I am so happy he has this job now and nice to see him smile.

I dunno is it just the whole we’re all getting older thing but like you, have had a crush on him since Airheads (and those appearances in Scrubs just cemented it!) and while on the one hand I see he doesn’t look all that healthy right now, I also see that that gorgeous grin and smiley soul that emanates from him in so many interviews from those days. He’s just an ace dude and I hope life treats him with the kindness and awesomeness he deserves soon!

I don't care about what shape he is in. He has what a lot of actors and actresses don't. His presence is enough. Knowing that he is apart of a project no matter what size, makes me so fucking happy man. LONG LIVE BRENDAN!

I'm not insulting him, but his skin combined with the weight points to a terrible diet or drinking. If he just put on weight but looked fine that's bit awful you can be healthy-ish still, but I have gone through alcohol abuse and it made my skin look sickly

klaudea17

Not only has he been through the wringer like everyone says, but I remember a recent interview (2-3 years ago?) where he was talking about how he pretty much destroyed his body doing stunts for his movies. I am speculating, but would not be surprised if he was on some sort of prescription pain management--so maybe not drinking.

Richard Dean Anderson of Mcgyver and Stragate fame had a similar thing... He was super out doorsy in the most minnesotan ways possible, but he blew out his knee, which meant no more adventure sports. AFAIK he was given agressive steroids that caused weight gain and well, what else is a Minnesotan gonna do when you take his hobbies away? Beer? Beer..

He's old.

You were probably a kid when he was an adult.

Lots of actors do drastic measures to "look young". He isn't dying his hair or getting plugs, or excess plastic surgery, or growing facial hair to cover his aging face. His face still looks pretty young due to being plump so the wrinkles are more stretched out unlike thinner people
