No other actor has a reputation quite like Nicolas Cage. Because of his overly-dramatic acting style, the ridiculous plots of his movies, and the massive amount of Nic Cage memesto which he owes his enormous Internet popularity, Cage has become the celebrity that everyone loves to hate on, even if they secretly love him.
Perhaps able to describe the Nicolas Cage phenomenon best is DJ and event-planner Ezra Croft, who wrote on the website for his Nicolas Cage art show that “Nicolas Cage is an enigma, of misunderstood sex appeal, raw, unfiltered power.” Yes, you read that correctly — Croft is hosting a Nicolas Cage art show.
“I like art that’s fun,” Croft said about the inspiration for his show. “I went to an art show a while back, and it was kind of stuffy. I started thinking, how could I host an art show and make it fun? And I just thought, why not make art about Nicolas Cage?”
The art show will feature drawings, paintings, and digital art pieces of Mr. Cage himself from both local and international artists, as well as live music and a bar. To find artists for the show, Croft publicized his event on Facebook, the show’s website, and numerous Craigslist pages.
I am 100% going to this art show. The man, the myth, the legend known as Nicholas Cage will be celebrated in art form and I for one couldn’t be more excited. To be quite honest, I think he’s a terrible actor but that may also be the reason why I like him so much. He basically acts the exact same way in every movie, regardless of what the role is supposed to be. It takes unbelievable talent to do that. Here are some of his gems that I’ve seen:
- Fast Time At Ridgemont High
- Amos & Andrew
- The Rock
- Con Air
- Face Off
- Snake Eyes
- Gone In 60 Seconds
- The National Treasure series
- Lord of War
- Ghost Rider
- Kick Ass
How IN THE NAME OF ZEUS’ BUTTHOLE has he been constantly selected for these roles? I only ask because in our current situation, well it could prove to be useful information MAYBE!
One of the best scenes in movie history.
