Description

O Cinema’s monthly series, SEASONED ACTORS, celebrates the work of an actor that has greatly contributed to the cinematic culture of our lifetimes. And for our 2nd season, we're honoring the work of the one and only NICOLAS CAGE!

 

Nicolas Cage stars as Charlie Kaufman, the screenwriter, as he finishes up work on BEING JOHN MALKOVICH. He is bald, fat and not the best of socialites, and he has been hired to create a screenplay based on "The Orchid Thief." Unfortunately, the book does not lend itself well to the big screen, so, slightly going off the deep end, he incorporates him and his twin brother Donald (also played by Cage) into the story, while also trying to progress the characters of a toothless flower lover (Chris Cooper) and the reporter assigned to tell his story (Meryl Streep), who is also the author of "The Orchid Thief."
