Nic Cage Reveals Penchant For Flawed Roles

14 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hard-nosed actor Nicolas Cage (photos) doesn't like being the nice guy - he prefers playing characters with a darker edge. Cage, who won an Oscar for his role as a suicidal alcoholic in Leaving Las Vegas (1995), finds truths in characters classed as 'baddies'. He says, "I like flawed characters because somewhere in them I see more of the truth." He's about to begin work on a new film in which he plays two roles, a man and his imaginary twin brother, a role Cage describes as "two sexually frustrated fat guys who may not really be fat". Cage will have to put on about 20 pounds for the roles and says he's a bit worried about giving up his usual exercise regime. He adds, "It helps me relieve stress. I start getting really paranoid when I'm not working out. It won't be the most pleasant time for me." »

Cage Did Serious Research For Alcoholic Role

9 August 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Nicolas Cage has revealed that the best research he's ever done for a part involved getting very drunk in Ireland. Cage went to Dublin for a two-week drinking binge for his role in Leaving Las Vegas (1995). The actor who played a Irish alcoholic in the movie, drank a 'ferocious' amount of Guinness and got a pal to videotape him under the influence so he could study the footage later. The star who won an Oscar in 1996 for his part in the movie, admitted that it was being away from home that gave him his drinking freedom. He says, "That's the beauty of staying in a hotel; you can drink and drink until you fall over, and no one need see you. I must admit, it was one of the most enjoyable pieces of research I've ever had to do for a part." »
