Nicolas Cage is known for a number of iconic roles on the big screen, but after decades in the business, there’s one direction he’s yet to take: heading out into the wild, wild west.
Cage admitted in his latest film, “The Old Way,” that he had no trouble channeling his Western roots to play Colton Briggs, a “cold-blooded gunslinger turned respectable family man.”
“I’ve always admired the Western genre,” Cage told Fox News Digital exclusively. “I grew up watching Charles Bronson as Harmonica in “Once Upon a Time in the West,” my favorite Western performance.
“I grew up in California, used to watch these movies on my little TV, and now I live in Nevada. I’ve always thought I’d be a good match for a Western. For me, there wouldn’t be much acting. “I had the impression I could fill those boots and wear that hat.”
