An actor who is physically unable to show restraint when accepting film roles. The quality of the role is reflected in the length of his hair. A neat haircut will surely garner some sort of critical recognition (e.g. Leaving Las Vegas, Lord Of War, Adaptation) One of the few actors in Hollywood to get incrementally worse with each role. Also, he has a tendency to appear in odd publications such as Serbian textbooks and Civil War photographs. He is possibly inhuman, inflicting generations of unsuspecting movie goers for generations to come.
"Nicolas Cage is the finest actor of our generation". -Nicolas Cage, Academy Award speech 1995.
"I'm just glad he was never in the Godfather". -Francis Ford Coppola
"He was an absolute pleasure to work with, truly an extraordinary talent". -The Mop from The Sorcerer's Apprentice
the ability to figure out impossible stuff from very, very abstract and vague clues, much like nicolas cage.
"My cat had a rash on its tummy that looked like an eagle so I fed it a dollar bill and it lead me to treasure in the back yard!"
"You Nicolas Cage'd that shit!"
An actor who can only be described as hit and miss, and commonly follows the "rule of 4"... the rule states that any Nicolas Cage movie where Cage has hair longer than four inches will be terrible (Con Air, Bangkok Dangerous), while any in which he has hair shorter than four inches will be good
guy: did you see that Wicker Man remake?
friend: it was awful, Nicolas Cage should really follow the rule of four
LORD of glory and splendor, it is He who is exalted as the One True God.
"Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth: both young men, and maidens; old men, and children: let them praise the name of the LORD Nicolas Cage: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven. He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of reddit, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD. Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth: both young men, and maidens; old men, and children: let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven."
Threatening to take someones face/off.
Ill turn your ass in to Nicolas Cage.
An actor that can turn any crap into something watchable or better. He's great.
Nicolas Cage turned that crappy movie into something totally awesome.
A rather mediocre acotr at best, who has never had success when he was the sole leading actor (e.g. see "The Wicker Man" and "Bangkok Dangerous," both of which grossed less revenue than the movie cost. Also, failed to pay over $6.2 million in federal income tax for the year 2007.
Someone who thinks he Nicolas Cage is a good actor: Bad Actor? No way, he was in "The Rock" and "Face/Off!"
Someone who knows he isn't: Oh yeah, the first starring Sean Connery and the second with John Travolta. Two good actors if you ask me.
