I'm with Puckett, let's go break him out! I love Nick. He's just way too high strung poor baby.
========================================================

By "high strung" do you mean STRUNG OUT? Then I agree.

I bet he welcomed going to jail...since most of his houses have been sold or foreclosed on, probably had no where to sleep last night :)

Ok Charlie Sheen is a crazy F***** and people are still following his stupid A**. He is a dirtbag that thinks he's gods gift to men and people still listen to his drug fueled rages and there is one comment about how nicolas cage gets arrested and people are comparing him to charlie sheen and saying worse things about him then charlie sheen. You people have serious serious issues.

Cage's acting ability has nothing to do with this charge. Anyone with common sense should realize this. And actually he has done well in several films, his acting ability in Leaving Las Vegas, Vampire's Kiss,and Bringing Out The Dead , come to mind as excellent acting on his part..
leave that out of the equation. Whatever happened between his spouse and himself was an entirely different issue.And domestic violence is not permissable no matter the vocation.

There is no question that Nicolas Cage is one of the BEST actors in the USA.
So my comment is addresed to the comments about Nicolas by loosers who are cheering his unfourtunate situation

Everything is not always as it appears. Those sitting in judgment too early more often than not have to late eat their own words. That is why we have always needed Due Process.

Have patience and learn the facts first. The facts are not always as stated by the accusers.

Sorry, no sympathy at all. He has no talent as others like Steve Martin. No smile to camera...no autographs??? My dog will cry.

Nic - Don't start down the path of the dark side. If this headline is true, you're no better than Charlie Sheen. Beating on women must make you think you guys are tough?

These people make too much money and too many people treat them like god and very few deserve it. We're too obsessed with stars. Read a book instead.

Little-by-little his life has been disintegrating. At first, I thought he was the victim of other people and had made some dumb decisions, but now I'm thinking that he has a more basic problem. He probably is in total denial and will never see that he is. This cannot end well.
