Nic Cage as Everyone is a single topic blog dedicated to photoshopping the American actor’s face over everyone else that has ever been photographed. This fan-art meme is a product of NicCageasEveryone.blogspot.com, a website founded on the “belief that everything in life would be better with a little more Nic Cage, the most unique and versatile actor of his generation,” according to the site description.
In November 2009, a fan blogger’s spark of genius led to the creation of the site. In a recent e-mail exchange with the Asylum, the blogger behind the project explained how the idea came to be:
“It began when it was brought to my attention that I was ‘obsessed’ with Nic Cage, meaning that I brought him up in conversation nearly everyday in our carpool. I think he’s a fascinating and unique actor, even when he’s in big budget films that people don’t necessarily deem ‘good.’ The great thing about Nic Cage is that, like in his films, no matter ‘who he is,’ he’s still essentially Nic Cage.”
During the first week of 2010, the fan blog received media coverage from major internet blogs and celebrity publications, including Urlesque, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Boing Boing and Washington Post’s Celebritology Blog.
As of February 1, 2010, the blog is the host to nearly 600 derivatives of Nic Cage shoops and the number continues to grow. In a recent exchange with Washington Post, the blogger behind the site (who wishes to remain incognito) has reported receiving “upwards of 50 submissions a day.”
Nicolas Cage is an Academy Award winning actor who’s appeared in over 60 films and played a versatile range of characters of from “bad boy” roles in the nineties (Con-Air, Face Off) to the more recent “adventure hero” characters in “Ghost Rider” and “National Treasure” franchise. Cage’s internet memedom began with the infamous image macro featured in Your Argument is Invalid in 2008 and continued with YouTube remixes of memorable quotes (Not the Bees / How’d It Get Burned?) from his role in 2007 horror film The Wicker Man.
