Sometimes I watch Nicholas Cage in films and wonder if he is really acting. The crazed looks, the wild hair, the erratic actions—are these merely components of a true method actor’s repertoire, or has Cage gone off the deep end? When I really think about it, I like to imagine a Tropic Thunder-esque scenario where the crew is in on it, but the actors (or actor in this case) believes that what is happening is real. This not only makes many films immensely more enjoyable, but does a lot to explain certain hair and wardrobe choices. A lot.
