Nicolas Cage says he "would like to play Jules Verne's Captain Nemo".

The 'Moonstruck' star admitted to wanting to do the role - based on the book of the same name - "because of the character's love of the ocean".

The 58-year-old actor said in a Reddit Ask Me Anything on Saturday (09.04.22): "I would like to play Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo because of the character’s love of the ocean I share that with him," or if any of the movie quotes that people holler at him in public annoy him "I don’t have a problem with any of the quotes, I’m glad they remember the movie."

Also in the forum chat, Nicholas labelled his 'Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent' co-star Pedro Pascal "a genuinely nice man" and gushed about how much he loved working with him.

He said: "First and foremost, Pedro Pascal is a genuinely nice man. You couldn’t ask for a nicer more pleasant person to work with. 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 comment about the appearance of a cabbage in a cabbage field. 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. I am still confounded by this. I mean who makes a joke about cabbage, except him? It’s just not funny!"

The 'Knowing' star' also shared that he is up for a 'Face/Off 2, writing "Yes|.

Nicolas also shared how much he loved working on 'Pig' due to it being "quiet" and "naturalistic".

He said: "Thank you. I was interested in returning to a more quiet, naturalistic style of film performance, having done a series of more operatic performance styles. 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 and 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 it communicated to a nerve we were all experiencing. It's one of my favorite movies, and it's probably my best work."
