FAVORITE NICOLAS CAGE PERFORMANCES

  1. Moonstruck
    Here we get young Cage. Untamed. Angry. In love. What more could you want? Also, he's Italian. Can't resist.
  2. National Treasure
    He's matured. He's a little gruff, but he is going to steal the Declaration of Independence. Also that masterful whisper is excellent.
  3. The Family Man
    Rom-com. Christmas. Excellent.
  4. Guarding Tess
    Nic's mission? Guarding a former First Lady played by the excellent Shirley MacLaine
  5. The Frozen Ground
    Nic hunts down a serial killer played by John Cusack. Creepy as hell, but the Cage we know and love.
  6. The Sorcerer's Apprentice
    Not gonna lie, I think he's funny in this one. And that kid from how to train your dragon is in it, too. Work your magic, Nic.
  7. SNL Appearance
    My life was made when both Andy Samberg and Nic Cage were both at the weekend update desk. These are great sketches.
