Believe it or not, Nicolas Cage IS an Oscar winner. You could never tell based on his body of work these last ten years or so. He may have revived himself, though with his highly acclaimed and highly anticipated new film, Joe.
Cage plays an ex-con thrown into a sticky situation in a small town. Just based off the trailer he looks to have returned to actual acting. He also appears to be taking a page out of Matthew McConaguhey’s book and take a rugged complex character. Time will tell if this will match up with his brilliant performance in Leaving Las Vegas.
