Nicolas Cage's Dream Role Might Surprise You

It's safe to say that over the course of his long and storied career, Nicolas Cage has run the gamut when it comes to playing iconoclast, one-of-a-kind characters. And yet, even he has dream roles that he hasn’t had the chance to take on yet.
Cage recently said that he “would like to play Jules Verne's Captain Nemo,” the antagonist of the classic novel "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea." Cage says he wants to play Nemo due to a shared “love of the ocean.”
Nemo is the mysterious captain of the underwater vessel the Nautilus, which he uses to explore the planet's oceans in self-imposed exile from the modern world. Hopefully, Cage will have the opportunity to do a version of Verne's novel (or perhaps its sequel, "The Mysterious Island") in the near future.
