Happy birthday Nicolas Cage! Nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola, action film lunatic, and the unsung hero of vampire cinema, Cage’s crazed mug has recently appeared on trendy leggings, spandex bodysuits and more Etsy items than we can count. Cage rage is, indeed, all the rage.
To celebrate the actor’s 50th, we bring you this extremely quotable tribute to some of the star’s best lines and scenes of all time. His memorable, scream-tastic roles in The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans, the terrible Wicker Man remake, Vampire’s Kiss and more are all represented here. After you replay this bad boy a few dozen times, head to Time for 50 Cage facts — a few we learned about for the first time. Gold moment: a recurring dream when he was four years old involved a toilet bowl, a giant blonde genie woman in a bikini, and shame.
Lock yourself in the cage for the day to honor the crazily coiffed actor, and feel the burn.
