Nicholas Cage - Weather Mna poster
Nicolas Cage was born in Long Beach, California (where he spent parts of his youth, along with San Francisco) on January 07, 1964. His parents are August Floyd Coppola, a comparative literature professor and influential director Francis Ford Coppola's brother, and Joy Vogelslang, a choreographer and dancer who suffered chronic severe depression. His mother's frequent hospitalization kept her away from the family for long periods of time. Cage's parents eventually divorced.
His first professional (non-cinematic) acting experience was in a school production of "Golden Boy."
Nicolas Cage is famous for his very diverse role choices. Throughout his career he has alternated between big-budget, mainstream epics and low-budget, offbeat fare. Since his feature film debut in Fast Times at Ridgemont High over two decades ago, he has insisted on appearing in a wide variety of films.
The more mainstream films (which had larger budgets and, often, better box office receipts) include:
Incidentally, all of these films were either produced or co-produced by Buena Vista Pictures.
In addition to these films, Cage has performed in films with smaller budgets and more intimate or even controversial plots as well. These include:
In recent years, Cage has experimented in other film-related fields besides acting, including directing and producing. His directorial debut was Sonny, a prostitution-themed drama starring James Franco, Brenda Blethyn, and Mena Suvari. Cage had a cameo appearance in the film, which received mixed-to-negative reviews and experienced a short run in theatres. His producing career, on the other hand, has seen more success. The first film produced by Saturn Films, a production company he started with Norm Golightly, was Shadow of the Vampire which was nominated for an Academy Award. Another film Cage produced is the star-studded The Life of David Gale.
He is scheduled to appear in many upcoming films including...
Nicolas Cage has had romantic relationships with Patricia Arquette, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Lisa Marie Presley (he was married to the first and third). He had his first son, Weston (born December 26, 1990), with actress Christina Fulton. He is currently married to former sushi waitress Alice Kim. They had a child on October 3, 2005 and named him Kal-El, the birth name of Superman in the DC comics universe.
