Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Was originally cast as "Randy 'The Ram' Robinson" in The Wrestler (2008). However, Cage dropped out of the film because he felt he didn't have time to bulk up for the part and director Darren Aronofsky's heart was set on Mickey Rourke. Mickey would go on to win a Golden Globe and be nominated for an Oscar for his performance. See more »
