Nicolas Cage: 'I'd Always Wanted To Play A Knight...It Was My Dream'

January 7th, 2011 8:45am EST
Season of the Witch
Nicolas Cage jumped at the chance to star in new movie "Season Of The Witch" because he was desperate to play a knight and film in a forest.

The star reveals the script came to him while he was filming "Bad Lieutenant" in humid New Orleans, Louisiana - and he loved the idea of jetting off to the European countryside for a break from city life.

He tells WENN, "I really wanted to be in the forest. I was making a little movie called Bad Lieutenant in New Orleans and I was very hot and I was in these tiny, very humid offices, and I was dreaming about making a movie in the forest. And then thi...

Eva Mendes
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans premiered at the AFI Film Festival in Hollywood on November 4th. Nicolas Cage was not present, due to the recent passing of his father, but director Werner Herzog and costar Eva Mendes walked the red carpet to discuss the film.

Since this is the second Bad Lieutenant, after Harvey Keitel's portrayal of another corrupt officer, Herzog agreed that there could also be bad sergeants and bad detectives. "Oh sure, and there should be bad midgets and there should be bad horses and there should be bad presidents of the United States as stars in the movies...

Can Val Kilmer Make A Comeback In Hollywood?

Val Kilmer
Val Kilmer makes a triumphant return to the big screen this week in "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans," an off-kilter project befitting Kilmer's reputation as one of Hollywood's biggest head cases.

Will this film - Kilmer's first to get a wide release since 2006's "Déjà Vu" - get the actor back on the Hollywood map or will he continue to toil away in B-movie wilderness for the rest of his career?

Remember, Kilmer may be king of the straight-to-DVD landscape now, but for a while was considered to be one of the leading men in Hollywood. Kilmer was Iceman for crying out loud! H...

Spotlight On Director Werner Herzog

July 8th, 2009 11:00am EDT
Werner Herzog
Werner Herzog is the kind of director that Quentin Tarantino used to be. Remember the nineties, when 'Pulp Fiction' had just exploded like a hydrogen bomb in Hollywood, and all of your asshole friends were so proud because they knew who Tarantino was before you ever did? Herzog is like that, except he's been that way for about forty years, balanced on the hinge of superstardom, but never quite tipping it. He's the indie rockstar who never signs a label because he's "too cool", like Green Day before "Poopie" or Metallica before "Load" or Tim Burton before "Sleepy Hollow". Like the characters...

Is Nicolas Cage Washed Up or Just Making Bad Decisions?

September 5th, 2008 10:40am EDT
The Wicker Man
In 1996 Nicolas Cage stood on stage at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and accepted his first, and currently only, Oscar for his tour de force performance in Mike Figgis' Leaving Las Vegas. This past year, while starring in Neil LaBute's ill-fated remake of the British horror classic The Wicker Man, Cage, donning a grizzly bear costume, punched a woman in the face.

There are two sides to Nicolas Cage-the go-to superstar with the droopy eyes and smug demeanor and Cage the talented, easily forgotten actor. Unfortunately the latter, Academy Award winning Cage persona is a distant memory a...
