IN BRIEFS: News from the Men Who Wear Tights on Film

Nicolas Cage and Michael Keaton discuss Kick-Ass, Batman and why there are no good parts left in Hollywood!


Michael Keaton, Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman and Batman Returns

On whether some people still recognize him as Batman...

"I think some do. That's all right. Nothing wrong with that. I am Batman. I don't spend a lot of time thinking about it.

On how he is similar to Bruce Wayne...

"I don't know – sometimes I catch myself being dark and it's annoying. I think, 'Get over it.' I bore myself. But sometimes, like everybody, I'm sure I am obsessive."

And, on why we've seen him in so few movies recently...

"Look at the movies that are made. Just look what's made. And then look at what's not made. I almost never watch movies at hotels, but last night I had seen all the news, like, five times over and I thought, 'Well I'll watch a movie.' But, flipping through the channels, I went nah, nah, nah …

"They're animated so there's no room for an actor. Or they're the kind of movie where there's only one or two guys they'll cast – The Rock, let's say.

And finally there are the little independent movies and so all the actors flock to them and there's only so many to go around."












Nicolas Cage, Big Daddy in Kick-Ass


On his role in the film...

"My character is more of a supporting part. I play the father of a young lady named Hit Girl, and Chloe Moretz plays that part. . . . It's kind of a very bizarre, loving relationship in the middle of what [director] Matthew Vaughn would call a lot of ultraviolence."
