Many actors would have done almost anything to participate in these huge franchises, but for Nicolas Cage, spending time with family was a priority.
Given the sheer amount of movies he’s shot over the years, one would think that the actor hasn’t turned down many roles yet, but Nicolas Cage has revealed that he’s also said no to two of the most iconic movies of all time. The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings.
According to his own admission, if he answered yes to the requests, he would have had to spend a lot of time away from his family, as both films were shot away from home, so he preferred to announce that he couldn’t take the cast.
In his latest film The Unbearable Weight of Gigantic Talent, he dedicated a parody of Cage himself named Nick Cage, and for the character his career in Hollywood is the most important, even more important than his children, but this situation changes when he is kidnapped by a crazy fan of his family .
His role is played by kidnapped Pedro Pascal, and in order to defeat him, he has to bring his action heroes to the surface, where he will discover his true career, so it will cause unforgettable and funny moments for many fans, the report said. Movieweb.
In one interview, the actor said that he differs from Nick in many ways, such as the fact that while the character had a career debut, that was never the case for him, as he was never more important than his family. He did not want to move to New Zealand for three years or to Australia for another three years, as he was going to spend little time with his son Weston.
