Nicolas Cage awoken by naked man with Fudgesicle

TORONTO | Wed Sep 14, 2011 6:31pm EDT

(Reuters) - For actor Nicolas Cage, making the new thriller movie "Trespass" hit close to home.

Cage, at the Toronto film festival along with director Joel Schumacher promoting the film about a home invasion, said that he has actually lived through the nightmare in real life.

"It was two in the morning. I was living in Orange County at the time and was asleep with my wife. My two-year old at the time was in another room. I opened my eyes and there was a naked man wearing my leather jacket eating a Fudgesicle in front of my bed," he told reporters on Wednesday.

"I know it sounds funny ... but it was horrifying."

A Fudgesicle is a frozen, ice cream-like snack.

Cage said the ordeal ended after he talked the man out of the house and police arrived. He did not press charges, as the man had mental problems, but Cage, who now lives in Nassau, Bahamas, said he could not stay in the house after that.

In "Trespass," which is scheduled for release in October, thieves con their way into the opulent mansion where Cage's character lives with his unhappy wife (played by Nicole Kidman) and their daughter.

The family is held for ransom and the movie follows a path of twists and turns as negotiations with the intruders ensue.

Schumacher, who earlier cast Cage in his film "8MM," and Kidman in "Batman Forever," said "Trespass" is also about extremes between the rich and the poor in America.

"It's a class warfare movie too, about the haves and the have-nots."

The diamond-dealing Cage character and one of the invaders are two versions of the same man, in that they have both "overreached to have their share of what used to be called 'The American Dream,'" Schumacher said.

I just wanted to beat China on this.

FWIW, in my 23 year old "haven't been through anything so shut the hell up" opinion, Nicolas Cage represents everything that is wrong with the movie industry. If anyone disagrees, go grab a copy of any of his movies that have been made in the last 5-10 years, and try to sit through any of them. I dare you.

Take Eva Mendes out of the equation and I guarantee you that **** goes straight to DVD, though the script itself should've gone straight in the trash can. If Nicolas Cage is your lead actor, your movie is doomed to fail. Gone In Sixty Seconds, The Rock, and Face/Off. That's his entire career.

Raising Arizona is one of the greatest comedies of all time, and Cage was perfect in it. And Leaving Las Vegas was very well done as well.

Just saying. I'm not a Cage fan, but those are two great movies with shockingly great performances by Nick Cage..

Peggy Sue Got Married, Raising Arizona and Leaving Las Vegas are all classics. The Lord of War was pretty decent.

To be somewhat fair to the guy, he's reportedly had some major financial issues in recent years, causing him to take roles in a bunch of crappy movies just to pay his bills.

Cage has a couple good ones, but it's because he's done so many that eventually a couple had to be good by statistical probability. Adaptation he was excellent, for example. Most of his movies he plays the same cliched character with the same cliched overacting.

I don't know, going through his IMDB, he's got quite a few decent or good movies.

Sinister is right though, lately he's been in some horrible ****. But I guess what? They're in post-production on the Ghost Rider sequel. Due for release next February. Oh yeah baby.

And he definitely does do the same cliched character.

Con Air was good too.

I have to disagree. It and The Rock were about as overdone as you can get in an action movie. Don't even get me started on the whole sequence of events at the end where they land a plain on the Vegas strip.

Raising Arizona is awesome, same w/ Leaving Las Vegas, Windtalkers wasn't bad, Adaptation was great, Matchstick Men I enjoyed, same w/ Lord of War, and even National Treasure isn't terrible though it's rife w/ stupid scenes and lines, and he was good in Kick Ass. But man does he have a long list of just crap movies. Season of the Witch and Drive Angry being the most recent ones for blatantly obvious reasons.

Weird story from Cage though, that experience sounds really unsettling.

I forgot about Con Air. I've never seen Leaving Las Vegas or Raising Arizona. I may have seen Peggy Sue Got Married, but I can't remember. It's just been so bad lately that it almost makes you forget about all the good to great movies that he's been in I guess.

Rent Raising Arizona. It's awesome. Really good.
