Nicolas Cage has been able to see the future lately, in movies like Next and this week’s Knowing. We can’t help but wonder: If Cage could actually see the future, what would his responses have been when offered roles in these movies?

Ghost Rider: “Can I do Iron Man instead?”

National Treasure: “I’ll do it, but I want a better back-end deal—one that applies to crappy sequels, too.”

Knowing movie review (03/19/09)

The Wicker Man: “Can we rewrite the script so that my character doesn’t have any dialogue?”

Captain Corelli’s Mandolin:“As long as no one sees this movie, I guess it’s a safe bet.”

The Weather Man: “Sounds like a good project, but I don’t want to co-star with someone like Michael Caine, who would outshine me acting-wise in every scene we share.”

Bangkok Dangerous: We can’t even come up with a joke for this one. Seriously, you didn’t have to be psychic to know that this one was going be a piece of shit, right?
