Cage answered why did he choose the part. He had a meticulous answer to that, “I was interested in returning to a more quiet, naturalistic style of film performance, having done a series of more operatic performance styles.

Cage continued, “The movie feels rather like a folk song to me or a poem, and the character of Rob was contending with tremendous grief and self-imposed isolation

He continued, “I think we as a group of people experiencing a pandemic in 2020-21 we’re probably also having similar feelings of loss and isolation and is communicated to a nerve we were all experiencing. It’s one of my favorite movies, and it’s probably my best work.”

Pedro Pascal is another name with a prolific filmography to his credit. Speaking on the experience of working with Pedro Pascal, Cage said, “First and foremost, Pedro Pascal is a genuinely nice man. You couldn’t ask for a nicer, more pleasant person to work with. 

He was all in awe of Pascal’s sense of humor. Cage continued, “Second, he has a very unique sense of humor. It’s the kind of sense of humor where I don’t know if he’s really making a joke or he isn’t making a joke. Such as a comment about the appearance of cabbage in a cabbage field. “

 He added, “And it made me wonder if he was a method actor and was in character and adding a kind of confused dimension to the Javi role, or if he genuinely thought the cabbage was amusing. This confounded me. I mean who makes a joke about cabbage, except him? It’s just not funny!”

Cage’s new film ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ will hit the theaters on April 15th, 2022.
