In a moment released online as a promo for the newly released US action comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Nicolas Cage’s super fan character played by Pedro Pascal reveals his favorite actor, who plays himself. himself, what is his (unexpected) third favorite movie ever.
“I cried throughout the movie,” explains Javi (Pascal’s character), who paid a million dollars for his favorite actor (Nic Cage) to spend his birthday with him. “It made me want to be a better man,” says the character of the Chilean actor before the film in question. In the scene, Cage answers hesitantly, not believing Pascal’s character that Paddington 2, the British bear movie, is a masterpiece. Moments later, we cut to The Rock, Con Air and Face/Off star, who is in tears after watching the family sequel with Javi, declaring, “Paddington 2 is amazing.”
But… how did The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent director Tom Gormican and his co-writer Kevin Etten land in Paddington 2 as the perfect choice of film for this hilarious bonding moment between the two main characters?
“The movie is incredible,” says Gormican. “It’s a perfect movie. There’s no ‘landing’ in it. It’s that good. We were huge fans. We wanted the movie to be a celebration of Nic’s career, but we also wanted it to be a fun celebration of making things, of creating , making movies and other movies that we love and think are great, and that was one of the first to stand out.”
Regardless, as much as Nicolas Cage finds himself playing himself in the film, it remains to be seen if the actor is truly a fan of the charming 2018 flick, and we already have the answer. “This script made me watch Paddington 2 and I understand why it’s in the movie, it’s a great movie,” says Pedro Pascal in an interview with Cage to promote the film. Then the eccentric actor we all love gives the expected take on him: “It’s really quite wonderful, it’s truly a masterpiece.”
