haha just b/c i'm a fan doesn't mean i think he's the best actor. he just fits the role perfectly for some of the films he does.
Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Don't get me wrong, Nicolas Cage, as an actor, sucks. He's horrible. Beyond horrible. He has exactly one character, and that's it.
Likewise, I'd say he's one of my favorites because he has a quality not found in others, and fits some roles well with his one dimension. He's an actor in the same style as William Shatner. But stuff like Con Air, The Rock, Gone in 60 Seconds, Lords of War or even Next/Kick Ass? He was perfect for. His comic fandom/Superman obsession doesn't hurt in my eyes, either.
