Cage Ep. 105 – The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022)
This week, Mike and Mike are getting back in the Cage to talk about a movie that sort of feels like the culmination of everything this podcast has been building towards. Nicolas Cage is back (not that he went anywhere) in the new meta action-comedy THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT, in which Cage plays a fictionalized version of himself who strikes up a friendship with a billionaire played by Pedro Pascal… and gets roped into some CIA antics along the way. There are tons of references to Cage’s entire career in this one, so we’re going to break them down right here. Also starring Tiffany Haddish, Ike Barinholtz, Neil Patrick Harris, Sharon Horgan, Lily Sheen, and more!
