Nicolas Cage goes nuts with his best Christian Bale impersonation!

December 16, 2010 in Entertainment by pacejmiller

Ahh…the price of celebrity.

Oscar winner and financially troubled star Nicolas Cage was in Romania filming Ghost Rider 2 when someone caught him going insane outside a nightclub on a mobile phone.  Perhaps Cage was in character as the crime-fighting, skull-flaming superhero.  Perhaps someone made a snide remark about The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.  Perhaps he was doing a Christian Bale impersonation.  Or perhaps, judging from the slurring, he was just drunk and having a bad night.

Check it out.  It’s hard to make out what he says but at one point he can be overheard saying: “I’m going to get in that car and walk away. Otherwise, if you want to kill me, go for it, brothers.”

Who Should Pacquiao Fight Next: Mosley, Marquez or Berto?

Who will Manny Pacquiao and Freddie Roach take on next?

Pound-for-pound champ Manny Pacquiao has announced that his next fight will be on 7 May 2011.  With Floyd Mayweather Jr most likely looking to fight guys trying to ‘American History X’ his ass in the prison showers (if convicted of abusing his ex-girlfriend and children), Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum has narrowed Pacquiao’s next opponent down to three guys: Shane Mosley, Juan Manuel Marquez and Andre Berto.

That’s it.  These three, and no one else.  So don’t think about any other fantasy fights (eg Sergio Martinez) because they’re not going to happen on 7 May.  Arum has presented three term sheets (one for each potential opponent) to Pacquiao and it will ultimately be Pacquiao’s choice.  It’s been reported that an decision will likely be made by Friday US time.

Let’s break down each of these opponents, what they bring to the table, and how likely the fight will eventuate.
