Nicholas Cage, the Award winning screen Actor of more than 60 Films to his credit and the nephew of one of the most notable and famed Directors ( Francis Ford Coppola ) has played many roles during his career.
Nicholas has the uncanny ability to not only ” adapt ” and get into the character role he has undertaken, but he also has the capability to literally get into his main characters ” skin” and BECOME that persona for the duration of the filming. He is one of the few Actors who possesses the tenacity to go to the edge and exceed the limits of his role by making the character believable to the audience. He has played various roles, as a Good Guy in the ” Family Man ” , an Angel in ” City of Angels” , a detective who hunts down a child pornography murder ring in ” 8mm ” ( a must see film ! ) and even a Marvel Comics action Hero in ” Ghost Rider “.
No matter what the character requisite calls for , Nicholas Cage is one of the very few actors in Hollywood today who can play not only the role but become the character and make his audience either Love him or Hate him as many did in the famed Award Winning classic ” Leaving Las Vegas ” where he played a pathologically addicted Alcoholic hellbent on killing himself; he made one feel empathetic to his character halfway through the film – and then within half an hour into it, empathy turned into hate towards his character. In essence, he made the audience love him and hate him at the same time- a feat which is quite difficult for any actor today.
Thus we wanted to show our viewers and Nicholas Cage fans out there this compilation of their favorite movie actor in all of the various roles he has played during his film career. ENjoy the Many Faces of Nicholas Cage !
