Will Nic Cage Ever Not Look Like a Fool in a Movie?
No. He will always look at least somewhat foolish.
Take, for example, our man Cage in Season of the Witch, in which he escorts a woman accused of being a witch to a mountain abbey, and looks like a fool. I would never take this guy seriously as a Highlander, or a Vigo the Carpathian, or whatever he's meant to be. It's just Nic Cage in some goofy clothes, and on a horse.
