(Hippie Cat says, “Whoa, I am tripping the f*ck out right now, dude.”)
Nic Cage was on Letterman last night to promote The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and it’s nice to see that he’s really trying to ride this “yes, I might be a little crazy” wave to see where it takes him. It’s much more fun to watch than his “Hurrr, I’m a cryptologist from MIT, how’s my hair?” shtick from a few years back. Anyway, in the video below, Letterman asks Cage if he drank beer in high school, and he says no, “but I had a bag of mushrooms in my refrigerator.” Then he goes into a story about how his cat used to get into his mushroom stash (“they were like cat nip to him”) and talks about the time they took them together.
“So I thought well what the heck, I better do it with him. And I remember lying on the bed, and Louis was lying on the desk, and we would sit there staring at each other, for hours.”
I’m assuming the entire story is made up, either that, or Nic Cage once owned a cat that could open refrigerators, which is actually a lot more interesting than the news that Nic Cage does mushrooms (news flash: everyone who owns snakes does mushrooms). Then he tells another cat story. The coup de grace of that one is that he fed the cat sardines, and the cat said, “Hi.” Haha, good story, Nic Cage.
Additionally, here’s the latest Sorcerer’s Apprentice trailer. I enjoy that the new batch of Sorcerer’s Apprentice spots actually includes Nic Cage delivering the line, “I am a sorcerer, and you are my apprentice.” Mmm-hmm, yes. Thanks for clearing that up. Otherwise I was probably just going to sit here for 90 minutes feeling very confused about all the hadoukening.
