Nicolas Cage

I Like To Rent Movies ...

And NOT Return Them

We know Nicolas Cage has problems paying taxes ... but who knew he had issues returning movies ... so claims a video store that wants him to pay $224.48 in late fees for 2 DVDs.

The owner of Old Bank DVD in Downtown L.A. tells TMZ Nic rented the flicks back in April -- "A Star is Born" and "The King of Comedy."

Problem is, four months later -- they haven't been returned.

Old Bank has resorted to Facebook to get Cage's attention (they say they can't get a hold of him) posting ..."If anyone happens to run into Nicolas Cage wandering the neighborhood, please kindly remind him he's had [our DVD's] for a few months."

They hilariously add, "Old Bank DVD is not responsible if he gets mad, bursts into flames and beats you up though."

Moral of the story -- a guy who owes the IRS $6 MILLION may be a little high risk.

Don't forget to rewind your DVD's before returning them or they will charge you even more.

$224.48 in late fees? Late fees should not go beyond the value of the DVD. You could buy 20 of each B movie. This is why Blockbuster is dead..

I guess Nic wouldn't be good to play poker with if he loses.

The caption in the shot says "Exclusive". Is this because only TMZ finds this a worthy story?

Somebody should tell the retarded store owner you can't charge late fees in excess of the value of the dvd of all the dumb things its 2 dvds send a bill to collections or write it off your seriously trying to shame a dude over 2 unreturned movies
