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.

In his defense I am going to throw out there the idea that maybe he's studying them in order to learn how to act because nothing else has worked.

Hey TMZ.. Here is a Twist to the Story.. there is a law called the "Video Privacy Protection Act" which forbids Video Rental places from disclosing the titles of movies someone has rented..
Nick cage can probably sue them...
He should ask for how ever much he owes in Taxes.

I say BS. Look at the receipt, it says the person's name is Cage Nicolas (look at the comma). This place is just trying to get some attention, and they're getting it.

Let''s count the number of federal laws this store just broke: at least two? The fair debt collection practices act and the video privacy protection act? Anything else?

OMG. This no talent psycho rented "A Star Is Born" (rating R - which means it's the Streisand abortion version) That means A: His taste in movies is as bad as his acting. B: In reality, if you rent that lousy disaster flick shouldn't someone be paying him? Like Streisand's prod. co.? & C: If he did rent it, moron - PAY! Anything to keep it from getting out you'd be caught dead watching that mess.
What a loser. What's your excuse Prick? Considering playing the lead in the soon, sure to be 2nd disasterous remake directed by Flint [what year is this?] Beastwood or Cage's another "C-case like Cruise & Travolta. Only one of those "Mo'rons of his age could sit through that treacly, sickening bilge. God if it'd had listed the '54 or even the '37 version, I might have respect for the poor, bald, talentless shlub. But ASIB with Streisand? LOSER!
