If you are a Nicolas Cage fan, the chances are you have seen the 'Nicolas Cage Losing His Shit' compilation on YouTube.
The video features numerous clips from Cage movies over the years in which he yells, screams or has a meltdown.
Undoubtedly, the actor has been a victim of the 'memefication' of his career. But, he decided to use that particular video as a positive for his movie Dream Scenario.
"What happened to me, I think I might've been the first actor who woke up one morning and somebody had put a montage of me, meltdown moments, cherry-picking from different movies, and then put it online," Cage said at the Toronto International Film Festival.
"I think it was called Nicolas Cage Losing His S---. It went viral overnight around the world, I kept going, 'What is happening to me?'
"It kept exponentially compounding on itself and getting bigger. Nothing I could do could stop it. I couldn't stop it legally, I couldn't stop it any way. I sat there and it started going to this 'meme-ification', with Photoshopping.
"I said, well, I've got to put this somewhere, and then I read Dream Scenario and I said, yes, now I can turn this lead into a little bit of gold."
The official synopsis of Dream Scenario, a comedy, reads:
'Paul Matthews, a schlubby professor, who never made it becomes an overnight celebrity after appearing in everyone's dream.'
It stars Cage, Julianne Nicholson, Michael Cera, Tim Meadows, Dylan Gelula and Dylan Baker.
