Hollywood A-lister Nicholas Cage has done plenty of fight scenes during his time at the top, but none as bizarre as the one he was captured doing the other day. Snapped grappling with lead singer of Mötley Crüe, Vince Neil, Cage is actually playing peacemaker, believe it or not.
TMZ reports that the whole sorry episode started inside Las Vegas’s Aria hotel when a woman approached Cage for an autograph. According the eyewitness reports, Neil threw the woman to the ground by her hair, which prompted Cage’s dramatic intervention.
The footage only captures the end of the scrap, which is a real shame. We’d have loved to have been a fly on the wall during this A-list meltdown. Check out the full video of the fight on the next page and revel in the glory that is Nicholas Cage. What a wonderful man.
You’ve probably realised by now that I’m a little bit of a Nicholas Cage fan, so I’m desperately making sure that he wasn’t up to no good during this face off (see what I did there?) I imagine that he and Neil were having a wild time before it all kicked off, but that’s nothing more than mere speculation.
As you can see by the footage, this is definitely not a fight between rocker Neil and thespian Cage. In fact, Cage is pretty clearly trying to stop his friend getting into more trouble than he already is. So what happened to the pair? TMZ reports that Las Vegas PD cited Neil for battery, but he was not taken into custody. Cage on the other hand was little more than a good Samaritan.
I imagine Neil wasn’t that bothered about being arrested because there is no actor more equipped to rescue you from a maximum security prison than Cage. Remember his film The Rock? Anyway, I digress. Want to see a really weird fight? Here are two chimpanzees with alopecia fighting at a zoo in the UK… crazy stuff.
Now that’s what I call a proper fight, none of this drunk A-list celebrity nonsense. Fingers crossed Nick Cage won’t have to break up any more fights for ageing rockers. Maybe next time he should just focus on being gone in 60 seconds, or at least before the feds arrive.
