Since George Washington hit the scene in 2000, director David Gordon Green has impressed me again and again.  Whether tackling a big studio comedy like Pineapple Express, an intimate drama like Snow Angels, or outrageous characters like Kenny Powers on HBO’s Eastbound & Down, Green has repeatedly shown he’s a gifted filmmaker that can handle any subject.  In his film, Joe, he tackles the story of an ex-con (Nicolas Cage) who becomes a role model to 15-year-old Gary Jones (Tye Sheridan), the oldest child of a homeless family led by a drunk father.  Loaded with fantastic performances (including some incredible work by non-professional actors), Joe really impressed me.  For more on the film, read Matt’s review or watch the trailer.

With the film getting released in theaters and VOD tomorrow, a few days ago I landed an exclusive video interview with Nicolas Cage.  He talked about working with non-actors, collaborating with David Gordon Green, why you should see the film, the status of National Treasure 3 (it’s not happening), The Croods 2, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Nicolas Cage:

  • Before the camera started rolling we were talking about The Croods interviews.  Watch the one I did with him last year.  It’s a great one…
  • Talks about what Joe is about.
  • The use of non-professional actors
  • Talks about working with David Gordon Green.
  • What will it take to get National Treasure 3?
  • The Croods sequel? Says it will start sometime next year.

    I hope we can see a Nicolas Cage renaissance a la Mcconaughey. Cage has so much talent it’s a pity he’s not getting big leading man roles these days.

    I love Nic Cage, he seems like a legitimately nice guy. Hoping for a National Treasure 3!

    He seems like a really nice guy. For someone who has kind of gone through the ringer career wise, I feel like he actually cares about acting a great deal.

    Think I’ll go see Joe based on his responses in this interview, so well done Frosty and Cage.
