Nicolas Cage is ready for his curtain call. Fear not, the Dream Scenario actor isn’t calling it quits on the family business all together. But the actor told Uproxx that he has about “three or four movies” left in him before he pivots to a smaller medium — the almighty boob tube. Inspired by a binge-watch of Breaking Bad, which the actor called “magnificent,” Cage said he wants to get into “other ways of expressing (his) acting” once he fulfills some pending contractual agreements. Will he be sent to the White Lotus? Perhaps one half of a True Detective duo? Maybe a trip to Fargo? Whatever the case may be, Cage’s inbox is probably already overflowing with pitches.
After his congressional reckoning, ousted representative George Santos is already exploring new career options himself. For starters, he’s tentatively agreed to a pay-per-view interview with button-pushing talk show host Ziwe, which seems like the most natural stage for him to tell a dozen more lies. But given his track record of fabulism, his desire to do the interview could be a lie in and of itself. He’s also taken to Cameo joining the likes of Jon Lovitz and The Naked Cowboy to sell personalized videos for $150 from the “former congressional icon.” While he has no current direct involvement other than his unprecedented rise to D.C. infamy, a film on Santos is in the works from HBO Films Veep EP Frank Rich based on a script by Bad Education writer Mike Makowsky. It’s only a matter of time before Ryan Murphy throws his hat in the ring with his own lurid interpretation of events.
