- Do you think Nicolas Cage regretted this decision?
- The actor turned down roles in both The Lord of the Rings and The Matrix.
- The cancellations have nothing to do with the content, he now reveals.
It certainly had potential: Nicolas Cage revealed in an interview with the American magazine “People” that he could have starred in two blockbuster films, but canceled the roles.
“There is no version of Nic Cage that family hasn’t beat their career. I rejected the Lord of the Rings and I rejected The Matrix because I didn’t want to go to New Zealand for three years or Australia for three years” and The actor explained according to “People.com”.. Instead, he wanted to be at home with his son Weston.
Nicolas Cage will soon be a father again
Cage is currently expecting children with his first-time wife, Rikko Shibata. He already has two sons, Cal L and Weston, from previous relationships. Cage will soon return to the big screen: In “Massive Talent” (theatrical release: April 21, 2022), Cage plays a fictional version of himself who accepts an awkward job due to severe financial difficulties.
For a million dollars he will appear as a guest star at the birthday party of his biggest fan, performed by the mime Pedro Pascal “The Mandalorian”.

His ability is legendary – his failure too. Nicolas Cage (played by Nicolas Cage!) has been a star with a bad hand when it comes to his movie selection. Billionaire Javier Gutierrez (Pedro Pascal) is now making him an offer that the fallen star can hardly resist. But his adorable fan, willing to pay, is also a fearsome criminal – and soon Cage is no longer playing for his life… “Massive Talent” – in cinemas as of April 21.
