Redemption of a Movie Star

I'm not a big fan of Nicholas Cage in the movies but after seeing this compilation of Japanese Pachinko commercials, he is maybe my favorite person in the world.

I agree. I like Nicolas Cage even more now!

Does that make him the real life Bob Harris?

I love pachinco - I had a machine as a kid and I have a more modern one now - its just the Japanese version of slot machines - only a bit more bizarro....

Nick is an amusing guy, I like him in that respect. Not sure why people thought he should be an action hero, but somehow it has happened- it's like casting Don Knotts in North By Northwest.

Wow. Totally did not hate him everytime he spoke.

Okay, A.) How come he's so totally broke now, and B.) they SO should have gotten George W. Bush for that last one.

hehe. I love the last one.
No doubt in anyone's mind he's in Texas.
And from Texas, I must say that not all of Texas is like that.
The last one was still my favorite though

No, I don't think that's Texas. I clearly see a Joshua Tree in the first frame of that clip, and Texas is not in their range.

That road reminds me very much of one outside of Barstow that I used to travel very frequently.
