Wass Stevens, 45, who starred alongside Cage in the 2006 film, also works as a doorman in New York and on Wednesday was detained by police and charged with attacking a man outside Manhattan hotspot Avenue.
Stevens - real name Mark Wasserman - has been charged with assault and possession of a weapon after he allegedly beat a 24 year old student with the metal end of velvet rope after refusing him entry.
Peter Pak was taken to the city's St. Vincent's Hospital in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
He tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "He was very condescending. We started cursing at each other and arguing. He lifted the rope and tossed the end metal part at my face. My head cracked and I fell to the ground. I had to go to the hospital for a Cat scan. There was no internal damage but I had huge blaring headaches."
But Stevens' lawyer, Sal Strazzullo, says: "Wass is 100 per cent innocent. He was released on his own recognisance, without bail, which I think shows you the weakness of the case. There wasn't even a corroborating statement from the victim at the court hearing."
Stevens has appeared alongside Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler and in Richard Gere's upcoming movie Brooklyn's Finest. He has also had recurring roles in TV's Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Ugly Betty.
