Remember when Nicholas Cage was a respected Academy Award winning actor? Me neither. I was really young when Leaving Las Vegas came out. I basically remember Cage for marrying Lisa-Marie Presley, Con Air, Face/Off, and perhaps relatedly, being a favorite of all those Face Swap memes populating the internet.
In case you need a refresher, here’s Cage replacing Miley Cyrus’ face in her infamous, very naked “Wrecking Ball” video. There’s also Cage as your favorite Pokemon, and a whole photo collection of Nicholas Cage’s face photoshopped into famous images.
There’s also Nicholas Cage playing every character in Game of Thrones. His face fits seamlessly into every character, showing how expressive and versatile he is as an actor.
In the video above, you can see the Nicholas Cage face swap happen in real time, via the app Face Swap Live. Creepily, his smile doesn’t change as Jon Daly cheers, “Yeah! Nicholas Cage.” His face also kind of moves around like a ripple going through the surface of a lake. It’s kind of horrifying, but also completely mesmerizing.
