Nic Cage carries on
As I mentioned in the 'About Me' bit, my brother is a focus puller. The technical name for this is First Assistant Cameraman, and his responsibilities are far wider than making sure the camera is in focus, but that's the name. Anyway, he's just started working on the new Nicolas Cage (equine-faced, as Mark Kermode calls him) film, 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice'.
Nicolas Cage's transformation from quirky character actor and serious thespian to cartoon-faced action star is now complete. He's completely abandoned any pretense of anything else and now churns out, under Bruckheimer's wing, big, loud, (literally) explosive films, year in year out. That'll keep him away from the Dukes' slate for now. We're safe.
