Nicolas Cage first trained for his 'Sorcerer'ship by eating magic mushrooms with his cat

On last night’s Late Show, Nicolas Cage took time out of his schedule of promoting The Sorcerer’s Apprentice to tell Letterman about a much more colorful period in his life during which he regularly feasted on magic mushrooms with his best friend/pet cat. “[The cat] ate them voraciously, so I thought what the heck, I better do it with him,” Cage explained. He went on: “I remember lying in my bed for hours and Lewis was on the desk across from my bed and we just stared at each other for hours — NOT MOVING, just staring at each other, and I had no doubt that he was my brother.”

And there you have it: the story that will have me going around saying, “I really like Nic Cage” for at least half a year. I’ll feel pretty lame calling him Nic, but you do what you gotta do. Video below.

    This story pretty much explains the last five years of his career…or at least “Bad Liutenant: Port of Call New Orleans.”

    I didn’t realize how bad Cage’s money problems actually were until I saw the previews for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Yikes.

    I just want to know when we’re getting Ghost Rider 2. The first one was so bad, yet I love it and catch it every time it comes on cable. I’m part of the problem, I admit it.

      You’re not the only one.
      I watch it whenever I stumble across it while channel-surfing.

      I’ll admit it’s a bad movie, but I love it! So sue me

    Nic is a true example of crazy…like a fox. I love his complete wackiness. You can’t say he’s not original.

    Nic was a really interesting actor before he became an action-star money-wh0re. I wish he’d go back to eating magic mushrooms with his cat so he’d make a good movie again. It used to be that you couldn’t wait to see what Cage was going to do in any given film; now you just wonder how awful the wig they stick on his head will be. Nic, be bald and proud — your toupees are seriously distracting.
