Battling personal demons. A face-off with the cops. Sounds like the plot of a Nicolas Cage movie, right? Actually, it’s the actor’s real life. The Village Voice’s Rosie Gray sums up the actor’s night in New Orleans, after he fought with his wife over what house they were renting.
“…Nicolas Cage was arrested on charges of domestic violence, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness, and subsequently bailed out by a reality TV star. Just another Friday night.”
Catch that last part? Yeah- Dog the Bounty Hunter bailed Cage out of jail. The anchors at Detroit’s WJBK try to figure that one out.
DEENA CENTOFANTI: “Why did Dog the Bounty Hunter bail him out?”
JAY TOWERS: “I guess they’re friends. And he was in the area and had the money.”
JESSICA STARR: “Wow”
DEENA CENTOFANTI: “And you get a little pub out of it, too. A little good pub.”
Good publicity for Dog, but what about Cage? A movie critic tells Good Morning America this won’t even register on Hollywood’s radar.
JEREMY HUBBARD: “Critics claim his career choices are driven by those much needed paychecks. But will those paychecks keep coming after this latest mess?”
CRITIC: “This is a blip in his career. This is not a tumble. This is really a minor thing. I will be shocked if the domestic abuse charges stick. Life will go on for Nic Cage.”
But the Today Show’s Mara Schiavocampo suggests, after a string of public outbursts, this may be the end of the road for Cage.
“In December, this cell-phone video surfaced of an enraged Cage outside a Romanian nightclub ... Last year, the actor revealed he owes the IRS approximately $14 million in back taxes, just one of many problems for a star who has certainly seen brighter days.
A blogger for The Stir argues, Cage might just be trying to fit in with the Hollywood crowd- everybody else is doing it.
“He's not getting any roles in Hollywood. Er, correction, any good roles. And the dude seems to generally go untalked about. … And maybe, just maybe, he did it to get some long-lost publicity. Why should people like Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen get to have all the fun?”
And a writer for The San Francisco Chronicle points out Cage probably already made enough to pay Dog back- and then some.
“Meanwhile, National Treasure played today and probably earned him the cash spent to get out of jail.”
Reports say Cage’s wife doesn’t plan on pressing any charges. And with a third National Treasure movie in production, Nicolas Cage may be able to bounce back.
