Nicolas Cage excited to work with non-actors

Apr 11 2014, 10:12am CDT | by

Nicolas Cage was excited to work with amateur actors in 'Joe'.

The 'Ghost Rider' actor is currently starring as an ex-convict in the drama alongside a host of professional and non-professional actors including Gary Poulter, a homeless man who was discovered by the director David Gordon Green and his casting agents.

Quizzed on what it was like to work with amateur actors, Nicholas told Collider: ''It's an element of surprise. I was really up for it.

''The one I'm thinking of is Gary Poulter who plays Tye Sheridan's father in the movie. He was discovered doing Vincent Price's 'Welcome to My Nightmare' monologue from the Alice Cooper album about the black widow spider and David saw that and said I want to give you a part and he auditioned him and auditioned him and finally gave him the part.

''I thought it was exciting. This was an opportunity for me to try something new, working with non-actors. He never dropped the ball, he was always on point.''

The 50-year-old star plays a former convict who becomes an unlikely role model for Tye's character Gary, as he is faced with the opportunity to either redeem himself or run, and he took the preparation for his role very seriously.

He explained: ''I flew out a month early which is kind of unheard of in Hollywood. I wanted to bond with David, I wanted to understand his process and get in step with how he likes to make a movie.

''I got to meet with Tye to make sure that we had chemistry, so it was an enormously valuable experience to go to Austin a month early.''

Denzel Washington's Back to Badass in Equalizer Clip

Aug 19 2014 7:48am CDT | Source: movie pilot

If there's one actor you'd never want to bet against, it's Denzel Washington. From Glory through to Flight, he's made a good living out of playing characters that you just can't help but believe in, no matter what the circumstances. Hell, even when he plays a straight up villain, you still have to work pretty hard not to want him to end up on top.And, from the looks of it, his late ...

We’re All So Screwed in New Images and Trailer for Left Behind

Aug 8 2014 10:44am CDT | Source: beyond hollywood

I’m reasonably certain if this whole rapture thing is real and it comes for us, I’ll be stuck on planet Earth. Which is not an entirely bad thing, if you really think about it. I mean, less people means more space and opportunities for me to do, you know, stuff, right? (See, I’m a glass half full kinda guy. So sue me.) Anyhoos. Check out the latest trailer and two handfuls of new images for Nicolas Cage’s “Left Behind.” So does Cage’s charac ...

Did Ned Stark Just Reveal Info About Jon Snow's Parentage?

Aug 6 2014 5:39am CDT | Source: ign

Sean Bean took part in a Reddit AMA last night, in which he revealed a rather ridiculous anecdote involved Nicolas Cage and dropped a potentially massive hint regarding Jon Snow's parentage. When asked about his time filming National Treasure with Cage, he spoke about the time the two (shockingly) decided to have a few bevvies before deciding to play pool, with rather upsetting consequences. "There was one where I went back to Nic Cage's ...

‘Left Behind’ Trailer: Nicolas Cage Fails to Get Raptured

Aug 5 2014 3:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

If you’ve been thinking that HBO’s The Leftovers could do with a little more Nicolas Cage, boy are you in luck. Left Behind stars Cage as pilot Rayford Steele, who fails to make the cut when the Rapture hits the Earth. Cue the Apocalypse. This actually the second cinematic adaptation of the book by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. The last one was released in 2000 as a straight-to-DVD film starring Kirk Cameron. ...

New Trailers: "Left Behind," "Reclaim"

Aug 5 2014 12:29pm CDT | Source: dark horizons

Nicolas Cage and John Cusack have been less than discerning with their film gigs in recent years, picking a lot of modestly budgeted thrillers that get poor reviews and barely go theatrical. How many remember the likes of "The Bag Man," "Drive Hard," "The Frozen Ground," "The Factory," "Seeking Justice," "Stolen," "Trespass," "Rage," or "The Number ...
