This is an update of a previously published article.

Today is Nicolas Cage’s Fiftieth Birthday.

Not only is this a milestone in the life of a great actor, but it also marks a half century of one of the world’s most lovable  eccentrics. With an acting career that has spanned over four decades, it’s truly amazing that Cage is as popular as ever now in 2014. This is in no small part thanks to the proliferation of Cage-related content on the internet. From YouTube clips to 4chan memes and endless Tumblr pages, you could literally spend hours falling through a rabbit hole of insane acting!

In celebration of the great man’s birthday, here are just a few of our favourite online Cage-Nuggets:
