Nicolas Cage Has No Regrets Over His Choice of Movie Roles

Nicolas Cage is…. kinda a joke. C’mon, you have to admit it. He’s done some great films (Leaving Las Vegas, Con Air) and he’s done some shitty ones (most of the rest of his career). And while he seems to get a lot of stick for being in AWFUL movies that never should have even been made, he’s having a grand old time and apparently doesn’t regret a single one of them. However, he is about to “reinvent” himself in the acting world.


“Much has been made of the fact that I made many action movies. The reason I did that was because the first time people said… ‘You are not an action hero, forget it’.

“What you saw was a dramatic actor acting like an action hero, trying to find characters that were interesting within the genre.”

“Now having done that, I want to focus on the dramatic kind of filmmaking. I am in the process of reinventing myself… I am returning to my roots, which is independently spirited, dramatic characters

“I had taken a year off to re-evaluate everything I had done, different kinds of performances… I wanted to find something where I could use my life experience, my memories and my emotions.”

Keep in mind, he was recently named the best actor in the world, apparently, so not everyone is down on his choices. Are you a Nic Cage fan?

  • I’m a Nicholas Cage fan. My favorite movie that he did is “Wicker Man”. I know it’s a grade B horror flick. There wasn’t a single male in the audience when I saw it in the theatre. In fact, it was primarily lesbian couples….LOL. Very memorable.

    • iLOLed! Is that the movie that involves BEES? Oh God, I can’t wait to Netflix it and laugh my ass off…

  • I genuinely love this hot mess. His best work = Matchstick Men, Raising Arizona, and Valley Girl (pay close attention to his shaved chest hair – CLASSIC). Also, everyone, please (please!) look up on YouTube “Rage Cage”, or perhaps it’s entitled “Nic Cage loses his shit”; quite possibly the greatest compilation you will ever see. Ever.

  • I, too am a Nicolas Cage fan. I totally like the way he seems so natural at whatever he does. The “Knowing” was good along with “Next” and the two “National Treasure” movies. He’s a good dedicated actor no matter what he does and I look forward to his next.

  • My best friend once told me I remind her of Nicholas Cage. So I went and watched every movie I could find. Now I am a huge fan.
