I’m now a much bigger Nick Cage fan than I was yesterday. In a round table discussion where the question was asked about Alec Baldwin’s shooting of Halyna Hutchins, he said his piece.
And considering how much he wanted to be the humble politically correct actor, this is quite a blast. Cage said:
“I don’t want to cast blame anywhere, but I do think, and I’m not talking about anybody, but people don’t like the word movie star. We want to be humble actors. But a movie star is a bit of a different kind of presentation because you need to know how to ride a horse,” he explained. “You need to know how to fight. You’re going to do fight scenes. You need to know how to ride a motorcycle. You need to know how to use a stick shift and drive sports cars, and you do need to know how to use a gun. You do. You need to take the time to know what the procedure is. Those are part of the job profiles.”
Give ‘im hell, Nick!
