The marriage scene from one reminded me of the other…

Nicolas Cage: “You bet I do.”

Kip: “You know I do.”

First Fact: “[Nicolas] Cage’s second wife was singer/songwriter Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, of whom Cage is a fan and on whom he based his performance in Wild at Heart. They married on August 10, 2002 and filed for divorce on November 25, 2002, after 108 days of marriage; their divorce was finalized on May 16, 2004. The divorce proceeding was longer than the marriage.” Wikipedia

Second Fact: “Twenty days after her divorce from [her first husband] Keough, [Lisa Marie] Presley married singer Michael Jackson on May 26, 1994, in the Dominican Republic.  They had first met when the seven-year-old Presley attended several of his concerts in Las Vegas.  According to Yahoo.com, when they met again years later, “things moved very quickly”, with Jackson proposing over the telephone after four months.” Wikipedia

Third Fact: “To avoid the appearance of nepotism as the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, [Nicolas Kim Copolla]… changed his name early in his career to Nicolas Cage.” Wikipedia

This post is dedicated to Scott. RIP, buddy.

(I know how much he gets annoyed when his rest is disturbed, and rest is important, so may as well be peaceful.)

  1. Thanks Ricardo, I was about to try get sleep, so I appreciate your well wishes.
    Did you know, that Nicholas got his last name from a Marvel Comic character called Luke Cage? The last part of his name, not the first.
    Now I want to watch “Raising Arizona” again.

    • Yeah, I did actually. Wikipedia has it all! I thought maybe that would be too many facts for one blog post. But did you know that Nicolas Cage/Copolla called one of his sons from his various marriages (perhaps his most recent) Kal-El? And that he was considered for the part of playing Superman (can’t remember which movie)? That would have been a disaster, me thinks, although not anymore than that movie already was…
