I wonder if Nicolas Cage is kicking himself right now.

After all, he was supposed to take on the role that is making Mickey Rourke a star again.  “Bangkok Dangerous” or “The Wrestler” — which film would you rather be your stage at the moment?

    Having seen The Wrestler the other day at TIFF, I can say that there is NO WAY that Nick Cage could have delivered the character that Mickey Rourke gave us. It would have been a different movie – one that wouldn’t have worked as well, one that wouldn’t have won the Venice Prize, and one that wouldn’t have made me leave Toronto’s Elgin Theater completely satisfied.

    Nic Cage isnt believable as a proffessional wrestler at all anyway. even in at his biggest, Con-Air, he still would’ve looked like a 45 year old 1-2-3-Kid/XPAC. lame.
