Embracing my Inner Nicholas Cage

Embracing my Inner Nicholas Cage

In the ‘90s, Nicholas Cage spent a lot of time in his movies sort of being a badass. More than I would like to admit, he became a part of my psyche. Now and then, I close my eyes and see him there. The Rock Nic Cage is shaking off his dweebishness to stop terrorists from nerve gassing San Fransisco; Gone in 60 Seconds Nic Cage is stealing cars and saving cops’ lives; Con Air Nic Cage isfoiling hijackers to get home to his wife and girl, dropping one liners in his greasy tank top.

Wouldn’t he like to take a break? The Nicholas Cage in my psyche, I mean?
