Pedro Pascal reveals the performance of Nicolas Cage that inspired him in one of his roles

Wonder Woman 1984 may not have been the film that we all expected it to be, however, we can highlight something from it, it is the performances of its talented cast, in particular that of Pedro Pascal. The actor plays businessman Maxwell “Max Lord” Lorenzano in the DC film directed by Gal Gadot, Pascal gave us a villain who immediately captivated the screen, something that now makes more sense since the Chilean actor revealed that he was inspired by a of the eccentric performances of Nicolas Cage.

While on the promotional tour for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, where Pascal plays a super fan of Nicolas Cage named Javi, The Mandalorian actor revealed that the fondness for Cage’s work is something that the Chilean shares with his character. “I started pretty early,” says Pascal, whose character in the film pays Cage (who plays a fictional version of himself) a million dollars to have the Oscar winner come to his birthday party.

“We had cable TV in my house when I was pretty young, so on cable, Valley Girl and Birdy and Racing With the Moon and Rumble Fish were all on the air,” continues Pascal, who will next star in the series The Last of Us for HBO. “Then I went to the movies with my dad and I saw Peggy Sue Got Married, Raising Arizona, Vampire’s Kiss, Moonstruck, Wild at Heart, which set us up for the ’90s. That’s how you get into Leaving Las Vegas, Honeymoon in Vegas and all of her amazing work I mean, I’ve really seen it all. I can’t pick a favorite. But I’d say Adaptation is one of the best on-screen performances in movie history.”

After complimenting the filmography of Cage, who won the Best Actor Oscar for Leaving Las Vegas, Pascal even revealed that he channeled some “Cage Rage” in the latest Wonder Woman movie. Which? Vampire’s Kiss from 1989, where Cage gives one of the most eccentrically funny and wacky performances of him, where he plays an ambitious, egomaniacal literary agent who thinks he’s turning into a bloodsucking vampire. Ironically, Cage will play the father of all vampires, Dracula, next year with Renfield.

“I remember shooting a scene for WW84 and in the instant I thought, what kind of energy do I need here?” Pascal said. I remembered jumping on the desk in Vampire’s Kiss, like torturing MarĂ­a Conchita Alonso [quien interpreta a la secretaria de Cage]. I remembered that scene and its energy, and obviously I didn’t decide to do that, but I just wanted a fraction of that kind of chaotic energy to make the scene that we were shooting that day work.”

Pascal stars in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, along with its true star of the film (and the home of all that massive talent referred to in the title), Nicolas Cage. The film will be released in theaters in the United States on April 22, and will also be released throughout the world in the coming weeks.
