Nicolas Cage is Superman, Wolverine, The Entire Cast Of Lost, And Everyone Else In The Universe
Notorious fan boy and actor Nicolas Cage already has his mitts on popular comic book roles like Ghost Rider and Big Daddy in "Kick-Ass." Heck, the dude was this close to starring as Superman once upon a time. While that never came to pass, I'm sure he would leap at the opportunity to get back into the Last Son of Krypton's red-and-blue spandex given the chance - he named his kid Kal-el, after all.
In reality, the closest we'll ever get to such a repeat performance is through my new favorite website, Nic Cage as Everyone. As the title insinuates, the blog superimposes Cage's face onto a plethora of iconic fixtures in popular culture, including Superman himself, Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, and the entire cast of "Lost." He even gets a shot as one of the most popular comic book characters in modern times.
"Founded on the belief that everything in life would be better with a little more Nic Cage, the most unique and versatile actor of his generation," reads the blog's mission statement, as though the premise wasn't already abundantly clear.
I'm not sure that turning everybody in the universe into Nicolas Cage would make life better, but it certainly makes life more hilarious. I mean, Nicolas Cage as George Washington. It really doesn't get funnier than that.
Except for Nicolas Cage as Chris Farley. That's funnier.
