As much as I enjoyed compiling my “Top 10 Awesome Van Damme Photoshop Pictures” and how much Jean-Claude will always be one of my favourite action hero of the ‘90s, Nicholas Cage has made some awesome movies himself and rightly deserves a post on this site as well. So without further ado, here is my top ten movie roles that I couldn’t help but think “What if Nicolas Cage Played That Role?”
10 – Nicolas Cage as Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett or to me and you Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are the guys in the movie “Bad Boys”. What’s better than Nicolas Cage in a movie? Two Nicolas Cages in a movie of course. One actor playing two roles in the same movie, it has Van Damme written all over it (Double Impact). All I need to do now is make sure a brother gets killed and throw in a little revenge. If you look closely at Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) on the DVD case you will notice he looks like the classic UFC fighter Georges St-Pierre.
9 – Nicolas Cage as Captain Jack Sparrow – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
As well as a Harry Potter fan, I am also partial to the Pirates of the Caribbean movies – one of Johnny Depp’s more exciting roles. And as much as Johnny Depp was perfect for the role of Captain Jack Sparrow I cannot help but think that Nicolas Cage would have made the film a little more badass. You have to admit that he can pull off the “Captain Jack Sparrow” look.
8 – Nicolas Cage as Wolverine – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
As you will come to realise, I have picked some pretty icons roles for my movie friend (I wish) Nicholas Cage to play – Take Wolverine here, in the X-Men movies, who is played by Hugh Jackman and because of this Hugh Jackman is always associated with Wolverine. But, being the big movie star that Nicholas Cage is, he could take on a role such as Wolverine…couldn’t he? Well…maybe not, but it would be fun to imagine it.
7 – Nicolas Cage as Iron Man – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
Have you ever wanted to know what Nic Cage might look like as Iron Man? Now you can! The picture is more a representation of what a love child may look like between Robert Downey Jr and Nicholas Cage, but you get the idea. If Nic Cage was to play the role of Tony Stark do you think he would have done the role justice? Probably not.
6 – Nicolas Cage as Gandalf – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
If you are a Nic Cage fan or not (I am guessing you are if you are reading this) you have to agree that he looks amazing as Gandalf aka The White Wizard aka Gandalf the White. Stand to one side Ian McKellen for the Hobbit as Nic Cage needs to play the Gandalf in a remake of all the films. We might as well get Van Damme on board to play Bilbo Baggins and Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham both to play Dwarfs. Heck, maybe Chris and Liam Hemsworth as Elves!
5 – Nicolas Cage as Forest Gump – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
I don’t think you could get a more iconic scene still from a movie if you tried. Even the people who haven’t seen Forest Gump will now this picture is from that movie. In all honesty, the role as Forest Gump is probably Tom Hanks’ greatest role and is a film I recommend you watch if you have not seen it. But our friend Nicholas Cage never had the chance to play the role of Forest Gump. Can you imagine him saying the line “life is like a box of chocolates…” no, nor can I.
4 – Nicolas Cage as Willy Wonka – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
I can only wish that Nicholas Cage had his own Chocolate factory. But for some reason, I are sure he would sell chocolate-covered ammunition (“Lord of War” reference) and not the kind Johnny Depp made in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Then again, it was a remake by Tim Burton so anything was game. If you are wondering why Nicholas Cage didn’t play Willy Wonka I have a theory: Both films (Lord of War and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) were indeed made around the same time, so obviously Nic was busy…makes perfect sense!
3 – Nicolas Cage as Albus Dumbledore – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
Yes, this is indeed the second Harry Potter character on my top ten list that Nicolas Cage should have played. I had to include Albus Dumbledore, as N. Cage would look amazing playing him I hope you will agree. Anyway, the Sorting Hat has spoken and told us that indeed Nic would have played a better role. No offence to Richard Harris. After all, it’s just for the LOLs, right?
2 – Nicolas Cage as Kevin McCallister – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
Oh my days! I had to sit down for this one as it’s just magical (the only word I could think of). The idea of a fully grown man playing the part of child in a film is just plain funny (no, not like Bruce Willis in “Look Who’s Talking”. That film should be banned). If you have been fortunate to watch the movie “Kung Pow” then you will know it’s possible with CGI to take an old movie and green screen in someone new. Well, someone needs to do this with Nicolas Cage in the movie “Home Alone”.
1 – Nicolas Cage as Hermione Granger – niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com
Nicolas Cage as Harry Potter’s Hermione Granger is pure genius (in a crazy way). As much as I love the Harry Potter franchise (really, I do) I cannot help but think that if Nicolas Cage did in fact play Emma Watson’s part the movie it might not have been the success that it was. Personly I would have prefered Nicolas Cage playing Alan Rickman’s character Severus Snape.
