But he is perfect for that role. His bad acting is just right.
I think Cage is a good actor...very good, in fact. It's just that his range can be measured in millimeters, and he has a tendency to hack it out.
But when he brings his game in a role that suits him, he can be excellent!
I'll take your word for it, because I've yet to see it. IMO, the only movie that he didn't ruin was National Treasure and that's only because ANYONE could have played that role and it would have been the same movie.
When I watch a good actor, I see the character they're portraying for the duration of the film. When I watch Cage, I see an actor acting like the character he's portraying.
Yeah, but a lot of actors are like that. Tom Cruise is probably the best example (best as in good); he's always the same basic character, but he sometimes does very interesting things with it. Burt Reynolds was the same. Kevin Costner. Meg Ryan.
I think the difference with Cage is that the character he always plays is so...odd.
Yeah, I'm thinking Chris Elliot. He'd have been perfect.
Nope - that's not it (for me anyway). It's not that Cage basically plays the same character each time. It's that I can see him acting. When I watch a good actor, I don't see them "acting" - they simply are the character. With Cage I can see him in the act of acting, if that makes sense.
Put another-but-similar way - when I watch a good actor play John Smith, I see John Smith. When I see Nic Cage play John Smith, I see Nic Cage playing John Smith.
Which means I couldn’t watch it. Chris Elliot must be in very small doses.
Yeah but... Cage is hilarious as himself. I enjoy watching many of his roles for basically that reason. It's not so much "what's this character going to do" as "what's that Nic Cage going to do now?"
And I don't mind that. I find it entertaining and that's why I'm there: to be entertained.
Watchmen pretty much canceled, no second season planned.
This one makes me sad, Better Call Saul ending after 6th season.
Although it had a built-in end-date (it really couldn't extend much if at all past the beginning of Breaking Bad), so at least they're not going to be dragging it out...
Yeah, said it in the Watchmen thread, but the plan from the start was pretty much 1 season.
Damon Lindelof said all along he was only doing 1 season
Seems like a perfect run, glad it's planned out and can't wait for the last 2 seasons!
And saw the last season was 13 eps vs the normal 10
I agree, I hope there is more shown with the Flash Forwards they did with Saul.

I'm excited to see Hank and Gomez!
I FINALLY started watching this show and of course it's awesome. Almost done with season 1
Always nice to have an easy watch like this to mix in with all the heavy stuff out there now
I liked Blood Simple and Loved Fargo. Hated Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski. In fact, I don't think I've fully watched either one. Tried a few times. Gave up.
Wait til you get to season 3 (not that they aren't ALL very good!) - one of my favorite moments on the show was S03, E03, with the tarantula in the cold open. I can watch that a million times and still laugh until I choke. Great stuff! Terry is definitely one of my favs.
