I think the real shock here is Nic Cage turning down a role...

Nicolas cage has no middle ground, he either does really good or really bad

I actually like Nick Cage, but I don´t think anyone would have been as perfect as Mortensen...he´s just the perfect Aragorn.

Because you saw him as that role in the 3 movies. If you saw Nick, then you'd say the same thing the other way around
User avatar #134 to #125 - ljxjlos (06/16/2013) [-]
Not really, my impression from reading is usually stronger. I still imagine many things different from what I´ve seen the movies. But it´s a fact that Viggo Mortensen played exactly the Aragorn I imagined from reading the books.

Because that's how you saw Aragorn, so that's how you picture him.

I was a big fan of the book, and I thought he was perfect aswell

If I see cage in a movie, I think of the actor, I didn't knew Mortensen before lotr and he's a badass. so I love him in Aragorn and he is Aragorn
User avatar #135 to #9 - ljxjlos (06/16/2013) [-]
Definitely not, I´ve read the books dozens of times before I ever saw Viggo Mortenson playing Aragorn, so I had a way stronger image in my head, that still overweights many things from the movies, but the picture of Aragorn I had in mind from reading was exactly what Mortenson played.
#111 to #3 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
Yeah. Even now re-reading the books when i read one of Tolkein's descriptions of landscapes or other characters it brings a different image to my mind than that of the movie depiction, but Aragorn... stays the same. I gotta agree. He's not the only one that happens with, but that's still significant to me.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy was cast so ******* perfectly in my opinion
Everyone did their jobs really well and from what I hear, they got along beautifully

I feel like i should have a reaction picture, but i don't...anyway. I read it in their voices. It was a mix of sad and amazing.

I think the only actor I had a problem with was Elijah Wood. I don't know what it was but I think there could have been someone who'd have played Frodo better, I just don't know who.
#15 to #10 - vikingpizza (06/15/2013) [-]
Yeah, I never really noticed that but he doesn't feel right   
He's like, the only one though   
And he always does that one weird face when he gets hurt    
This one actually

danny devito is the obvious choice

yeah i kind of agree, every other actor is perfect though

I just imagined LOTR with Nicholas Cage... I feel cold and sick

He'd have just ruined it. Viggo Mortensen wasn't cast until about 4 days into shooting. I wouldn't be able to imagine him not being there

I've felt like this about every role he's done since he was a kid. That made me think that the reason might be that he looks almost exactly the same as when he was a kid and I just can't stop seeing a weird man-child thing whenever he plays a role. Having said that, I do think he's a fairly good actor and like a lot of his shows and movies just for some reason seeing him is kinda jarring. I think it doesn't seem so bad in Wilfred for some reason.

I'm sure he would've delivered a nuanced performance.

I don't know why people say Nicolas Cage is a bad actor. I used to think that myself because I kept hearing it everywhere but then I saw Leaving Las Vegas in which he won an oscar for. He was ******* great, and Adaptation too. I agree that his recent roles suck but thats because the movies suck and the characters suck.

I thought he was great in Kick-Ass

He's not a bad actor, but he has a lot of problems with gambling. Because of these, he is indebted a lot and is forced to act in a lot of bad movies.

He was brilliant in Matchstick Men.
User avatar #81 to #34 - burningsmurfs (06/16/2013) [-]
Yes great movie, and Raising Arizona is a good one too. I think I like him so much still because I saw that when it was new and it was the first time I'd really seen him and then I just forgave the bad ones. Plus I like Con Air and Face/off and even the Rock movies even though they get hated on so much.
User avatar #28 to #22 - TheMather ONLINE (06/16/2013) [-]
He's not a bad actor, he just doesn't know to turn down bad roles.
User avatar #123 to #28 - blbrian (06/16/2013) [-]
Well yeah, because he went dirt poor. He has had to sell his body ever since, becomimg the actorslut

Next was a cool movie, but that bullet wasn't going to ever hit him in the first place.

Nicolas Cage is one of my favourite actors not because he becomes a character, but because he IS Nicolas Cage. National Treasure? He was still Nic Cage stealing the declaration.

Tim Burton intended to make a Superman movie starring Nicholas Cage. Thankfully, it fell through.

Sir, that is not the hairline of the Man of Steel. That is "man of corroded pig iron" at best.
I rest my case. And myself.
Good night.
