It’s really Nicholas Cage came back with a vengeance, and 2022 looks to be one of the best recent years of his career, being extremely praised for his performance in ‘The Weight of Talent‘. This time, the actor received praise from the cult filmmaker William of the Bullwhich defined the star as one of the best actors of all time.
Even though they never worked together, of the bull had already praised ‘Pig‘ (2021), claiming to be a big fan of the star. Now on his Twitter, when commenting on an interview in which Cage says that he never made films just for money, even the bad ones, the director made the following comment:
“He never, by any means, does anything less than his grandiose best. I’ve already said: There hasn’t been and never will be another actor like Nicolas Cage. A master.”
He absolutely never, ever does anything but his best- I’ve said it before: there has not been, nor will there ever be an actor like Nicolas Cage. A master. https://t.co/n1yml8tSCW
