Nicolas Cage wants to play in a musical.
The 58-year-old actor’s latest film, ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’, sees him playing a fictionalized version of himself in the new meta-action comedy blockbuster, but he has revealed that he was “curious” to venture into the musical world.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Cage said, “At this time, I’m thrilled that comedy is back on the menu. He’s been gone for 15 years. It’s good that I have the opportunity to do more comedy.
“But I’ve never done a musical. It would be something that would interest me.
However, the “Con Air” star primarily wants to continue doing indie dramas.
He added: “I just want to continue on the roots of indie drama. That’s my real passion, movies like ‘Pig’ or ‘Leaving Las Vegas’ or ‘Joe’. ‘Bringing Out the Dead’ – I love it. I’ve seen recently. I have to say it might be the best movie I’ve ever done.”
Meanwhile, Nic recently revealed his dream role is Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo.
The ‘Moonstruck’ star is keen to take on the character because of their shared “love of the ocean.”
Participating in a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) recently, he said: “I would love to play Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo because of the character’s love of the ocean, I share that with him, or if the one of the movies quotes that people yell at him in public to annoy him.
“I have no problem with the quotes, I’m glad they remember the movie.”
