Early Life

Nicolas Cage was born Nicolas Kim Coppola in Long Beach, California on January 7, 1964. His father August Coppola was a professor of literature and his mother Joy Vogelsang was a dancer and choreographer. August died of a heart attack in 2009. Cage grew up in Beverly Hills and attended Beverly Hills High School as well as UCLA’s School of Theatre. Cage is the nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola and actress Talia Shire, as well as the cousin of directors Sofia Coppola and Roman Coppola, and actor Jason Schwartzman, through his father. To avoid the appearance of nepotism, Cage changed his surname to Luke Cage, after the Marvel Comics superhero.

Acting Career Cage made his film debut in 1982’s “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” He continued to work steadily throughout the 1980s and early 1990s in films such as “Valley Girl,” “Raising Arizona,” “Peggy Sue Married,” “Honeymoon in Vegas,” “Face/Off,” “Con Air,” “Gone in Sixty Seconds,” “The Rock,” and “The Family Man,” to name a few. National Treasure, his second-highest-grossing film to date, was released in 2004. Despite his success in many of these big-budget action films, most of his lesser-known films have been box office duds in comparison to his action/adventure mainstream hits. Wicker Man, his 2006 remake, failed to recoup its $40 million budget and received overwhelmingly negative reviews.

Starting of career

Cage was discovered at a wrestling show in 2007 while auditioning for the lead role in Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler. He later dropped out of contention for the role. Mickey Rourke was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in the lead role. Cage appeared in Werner Herzog’s 2009 film The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. The film received overwhelmingly positive reviews, and Cage was praised for his performance as the lead. He had box office success with Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in 2012, grossing $585 million. Joe, his next film, was a box office flop. In 2018, he starred in Mandy, an action thriller produced by Elijah Wood that received critical acclaim. Wood intended for the film to garner Oscar support for Cage, but it was ultimately disqualified for a late-year release. Cage agreed to star in Richard Stanley’s 2018 film Color Out of Space. It was Stanley’s first major motion picture since 1996.

Nick went on a spending spree that would make the Sultan of Brunei blush between 2000 and 2007. He bought 15 personal homes (including TWO castles), a $7 million private island in the Bahamas, four luxury yachts, a fleet of cars, a $30 million private jet, dozens of pieces of art and jewels, and a 67 million-year-old dinosaur skull.
