Nicolas Cage, SuperStar –


About Nicolas Cage...

Nicolas Cage was born Nicolas Kim Coppola on January 7,1964 in Long Beach, California, but prefers to go by Nick.

Cage is the son of literature professor August Coppola and dancer/choreographer Joy Vogelsang. He is also the nephew of the famous director Francis Ford Coppola and the brother of Marc and Christopher Coppola. So as to develop a self-made career and reputation Nicolas Coppola changed his last name to Cage early in his career.

Nick met his third wife, Alice Kim, at a sushi bar where she was a waitress. She was only 20-years-old at the time they married, 2004. Happily wed, however, the two are expecting their first child in February of 2005. He was formerly married to Lisa Marie Presley (2002-2004), and Patricia Arquette (1995-2001). Cage also has a son, Weston Coppola-Cage (b.1992), from a former relationship with Kristina Fulton.

On The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 1992, Nick told Jay that he chose the name "Cage" from a comic book; Luke Cage-the "first black superhero". In fact, Nicolas Cage is an avid comic book collector, who considers them as the modern day version of mythology.

Cage landed his first film role in his uncle Francis' film, RUMBLE FISH (1983), after reading lines for an audition. His next film was 1983's VALLEY GIRL which, although filmed at a later date, was released before RUMBLE FISH.

In 1989 Nick starred in VAMPIRE KISS in which he actually eats a live roach. For his next major film, 1990's WILD AT HEART, Nick's name appears as both "Nicolas Cage" and "Nicolas Cage" for the movie poster.

In 2002 Cage took on the highly unconventional dual roles of Donald and Charlie in the psychological film ADAPTATION for which he received an Oscar nomination.

Cage is the proud owner of a Lamborghini that once belonged to the Shah of Iran.

Nicolas Cage has a tattoo of monitor lizard with a top half on his upper back.

In 1984 Nicolas was on the twelve "Promising New Actors of 1984" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 36. In October, 1997 Nick was Ranked #40 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. The following year Cage was Ranked #37 in Premiere's "100 Most Powerful People in Hollywood"(1998).

Allegedly Cage was responsible for helping actor Johnny Depp land his first acting job.


Nicolas Cage won his Best Actor award for his performance as a man drinking himself to death in Las Vegas.
