Trivia / Nicolas Cage

  • Doing It for the Art: Cage created and manages Saturn Films, which, if you follow the link, has a record of producing utterly terrible flops that all star Nicolas Cage. Neither the quality nor the lack of appeal of these films seem to put him off. This film company may have something to do with his financial troubles elaborated on below.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Formerly a well-regarded actor and a box office draw. He's now considered something of a joke as he's taken every piece of work available to him, no matter how bad or low-brow, after having racked up a significant tax debt (spending like this tends to do that to you) and needing to pay off the IRS.
  • One of Us: Cage is a very vocal comic book geek. Nicolas Cage took the Cage as his stage name as inspiration from Marvel Comics' Luke Cage. He took the stage name to avoid association with his uncle and the accusations of nepotism it would've caused.
