Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage was born Nicolas Kim Coppola on January 7, 1964 in Long Beach, California into one of the most famous movie families of all time. The son of comparative literature professor August Coppola (a brother of director Francis Ford Coppola) and dancer/choreographer Joy Vogelsang, Cage changed his name in an effort to land acting jobs on his own merit. He made a name for himself with offbeat roles in movies like Raising Arizona, Wild at Heart and Bringing Out the Dead. Cage has found major box office success  with action movies like Face/Off, The Rock and Con-Air, but his career is also riddled with flops that failed to make money despite his stellar performances, like Lord of War and The Weather Man. Cage dated actress Christina Fulton, who had their son, Weston Coppola Cage, in 1990. He married two women from families as famous as his own, Patricia Arquette (1995-2001) and Lisa Marie Presley (2002-2004), before settling down with his current wife, former waitress Alice Kim, in 2004. She gave birth to Cage's second child, named Kal-El (after comic hero Superman's birth name), in 2005.
