Nicolas Cage, born Nicolas Kim Coppola, achieved success by his own means without using his famous family name, Coppola. Cage’s film career began in the early 80s and earned a reputation for being quirky, funny, and unconventional — but it wasn’t until the mid-90s that the young actor really hit his stride, earning an Academy Award in the process. Cage has remained daring in his exploration of the complete emotional gamut of human personality. He’s never hesitant to be completely free and exposed in a role, knowing full-well that one of his performances may draw mockery. Throughout his career, Cage has played a broad range of characters and occasionally takes unconventional approaches to them, but it all serves to produce a very human performance. It’s that unpredictability and fearlessness that makes Nicolas Cage one of the most electrifying actors of his generation.

O Cinema’s monthly series, SEASONED ACTORS, celebrates the work of an actor that has greatly contributed to the cinematic culture of our lifetimes. And for our 2nd season, we’re honoring the work of the one and only NICOLAS CAGE!

Nicolas Cage stars as Charlie Kaufman, the screenwriter, as he finishes up work on BEING JOHN MALKOVICH. He is bald, fat and not the best of socialites, and he has been hired to create a screenplay based on “The Orchid Thief.” Unfortunately, the book does not lend itself well to the big screen, so, slightly going off the deep end, he incorporates him and his twin brother Donald (also played by Cage) into the story, while also trying to progress the characters of a toothless flower lover (Chris Cooper) and the reporter assigned to tell his story (Meryl Streep), who is also the author of “The Orchid Thief.”

“In a larger sense, Adaptation is a movie about the simple act of enjoying life — of really embracing it — without constantly worrying about what others think.”
– RENE RODRIGUEZ, MIAMI HERALD

“Duelling roles are an actor’s dream, and Cage takes full advantage. He and that face of his — hang-dog homely one minute, vibrantly macho the next — are perfectly cast.”
– GLOBE AND MAIL

“Screenwriting this smart, inventive, passionate and rip-roaringly funny is a rare species. It’s magic.”
– ROLLING STONE

“It’s typical of the nerve, the bravado, the sheer giddy playfulness and sense of fun that characterize what has to be the boldest and most imaginative studio film of the year.”
– LOS ANGELES TIMES
