Nicolas Cage made his television debut in 1981 and his film debut in 1982. However, his luck did not work until he appeared in the film titled Leaving Las Vegas, in which the talented actor was seen as an alcoholic man. In fact, his work in the film won him Academy Award for Best Actor. 

Even though Cage has done numerous romantic films and TV series, he is mainly known for his appearances in the action-films such as Face/off, Pig, Ghost Rider film series, and more.

Nicolas Cage spent $30,000 from his pocket to include a song in his film

In the 60 minutes interview, Nicolas Cage revealed that there’s a scene in his upcoming film in which he’ll be seen singing a song originally sung by Alicia Bridges, I Love The Nightlife. He loved the song so much that he did not think twice before spending $30,000 to license it. 

I had to spend $30,000 of my own money to (license) that song in the movie. The song, to me, was perfect for this situation. It was also kind of amusing in a really psychotic way. Plus, it’s a hilarious song. I hope Alicia Bridges isn’t too upset with the way I murdered it with my vocal performance. I do like her very much.

Nicolas Cage’s Superman finally got a screentime, but the actor was not happy about it

For the unacquainted, Nicolas Cage was chosen to play the role of Man of Steel in the comic book film Superman Lives. The film took years to develop scripts and visualize the ideas, but sadly, Cage’s Superman never made it to the screens as the film was canceled at the final moment. 

The Flash movie that got released recently sees the cameo of Cage as the Man of Steel, but as it was just for 6 seconds, the actor doesn’t seem happy about it as he wanted a longer screen time. Cage also added that during that time, he did not even blink his eyelids because it was a great pleasure for him to see this character on the screen, that too after decades.

I was supposed (to play) Clark Kent after that (in “Superman Lives”), and I was already developing this alien otherness playing this angel. That is a perfect example of the tonality you would’ve gotten for Kal-El and for Clark Kent: Clark would’ve been a little more amusing, but Kal-El (had) the sensitivity and the goodness and the vulnerability and all those feelings that were kind of angelic and also terrifying.

Despite the actor’s wish to extend the screen time of the cameo, we feel it was the correct decision to keep the timing short as its CGI was not up to the mark.
