Is the actor really that bad or is it just a bad movie? Weird Worm shines the light on 5 actors who you thought were bad, but are actually quite talented. Take, for instance, Nicolas Cage:
Mr. Cage is the man that inspired this article. Never before has Hollywood seen an actor who is has such immense talent but is pretty content with doing movies like “Bangkok Dangerous”, “Ghost Rider” and “The Wickerman”.
Nick Cage is an Academy Award winner for Best Actor. That’s right. Those aren’t like Golden Globes, which everyone has – he’s won the real deal. He earned it for his performance in “Leaving Las Vegas” where he systematically drinks himself to death and befriends a prostitute along the way. This is the same actor in “Con Air” and “G-force” mind you. After doing a couple more blockbusters and a few more flops, the real Nick Cage returned in 2002 with “Adaptation”. Again he was nominated for “Best Actor”- as if to remind everyone that the joke is on us. In short, Nick Cage is like a mythical Chinese Dragon that appears every thousand years, except when Nick Cage resurfaces he doesn’t herald the end of the world, he just behaves like a talented actor.
