 Nicolas Cage Is a Leather Jacket God

The line separating Nicolas Cage the person and Nicolas Cage the actor is constantly blurring. In a New York Times interview last year, the actor divulged in delicious detail that he had been on a quest for literal grails: he visited a well in Glastonbury, England that tasted of blood and was said to contain two legendary cruets, and bought a property in Rhode Island partially because he was looking for a temple constructed by the Knights Templar. Well, that sounds awfully familiar: it’s the same sort of quest that obsessed Benjamin Gates, the character Cage plays in the National Treasure franchise. It doesn’t stop there: Cage’s life is so undeniably cinematic in his new film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent he plays the role of a man he’s intimately familiar with…himself. The glue that connects movie Cage and real-life Cage? The leather jacket.

Images of Cage on the set of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent surfaced Thursday, with the actor wearing a pink leather biker jacket affixed with patches depicting guns, angel wings, and desert scenes. On the back of the jacket is the Superman logo. It is the ideal piece of clothing for Nic Cage as Nic Cage—because real-life Nic Cage’s collection of absurd leather jackets is virtually bottomless—an endless bounty of studded, cheetah-patterned, golden, shiny, shearling, and snakeskin outerwear. Below, we rank all of them.
