First Look: Nic Cage and Jay Baruchel in Sorcerer's Apprentice

Even though Knowing made a respectable $25 million at the box office this past weekend, I don't think Nic Cage's career is back on the right track. Some new photos of Cage in Disney's The Sorcerer's Apprentice, the live-action retelling of the classic Mickey Mouse story from Fantasia, have popped up tonight on the celeb gossip site Just Jared. I would say, don't be so quick to judge these and Cage's new hairdo and leather outfit, but I'm sure you've already made up your mind. I don't know if these will help Cage any more, or potentially ruin him entirely again, but honestly, I'm still looking forward to The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

Nic Cage and Jay Baruchel in Sorcerer's Apprentice

So here's my argument for these photos. We all knew that they'd update this somehow, it's not like we'd literally see Jay Baruchel in a Mickey Mouse outfit. Just like in Enchanted, it's best to just let Disney and director Jon Turteltaub do whatever they want, let their imaginations run wild. And if this is what they came up with, for a specific scene which we have no context for (it could be the beginning, when the two first meet), then so be it. It's in our nature to be judgmental, as I am all the time, but I really don't have any complaints yet. I've still got high hopes for this, as some fun Disney entertainment. Thoughts?

That young guy looks familiar. Is he from Superbad?

He looks different, at least. Really, really scary actually, lol. If the movie's decent and he does something other than a national treasure role (except more frantic and crazy) then he might be ok.

The guy is a walking joke now. Can't believe he's the one who introduced Johnny Depp to acting. Depp must be confused as to how badly his old friend has lost the plot, as well as his mind.

Is it me or does Nic Cage look like Harry Dresden?

Atticus on Mar 26, 2009


Hey, look at the bright side, at least he's wearing a hat. 🙂

Timothy on Mar 26, 2009


#3, more like, I can't believe he's a Coppola...although they've never been really great in front of the camera as they have behind it. Where's the Cage that deserved the Oscar for Best Actor in Adaptation, what happened to Matchstick Men, Leaving Las Vegas, Raising Arizona and Bringing Out the Dead? Sigh...

Homero on Mar 26, 2009


I actually think this is the kind of role Cage will thrive in. I am sick and tired of the Next, Knowing type of roles. @#7 that Cage is long gone and he won't be coming back.

Justin on Mar 26, 2009


for the love of God, no.

ugh, not again on Mar 26, 2009


Are you guys serious, it's just a picture, don't be so judgemental. Looks can be deceiving.

The Kid on Mar 26, 2009


I'm not thinking it will be too bad. They seem to be having fun and just generally happy which is a good thing. I'm really interested in seeing what the trailer will be like

Jesse Gouldsbury on Mar 26, 2009


It's a Disney movie right?! It will be decent enough. I've never seen a completely awful disney movie before that was a theatrical release.

kindbuddy on Mar 27, 2009


I've played with Jay Baruchel in a movie in Montreal and he's a nice guy. Really. He's really a nice actor. This looks good.

Gab on Mar 27, 2009


I agree with you #10. Until I get to see the trailer for this then I will make my mind up. It doesn't actually look like they are shooting anything. It looks like they are between takes.

Nick Cage looks very out of place in those clothes

Tom W on Mar 27, 2009


GOD DAMN YOU NICKOLAS CAGE!!!! STOP RUINING WHAT COULD BE GOOD ENTERTAINMENT! I ADORED the idea of making "The Sorcerers Apprentice" into a live action movie until i heard he was in it. And now seeing him along side Jay Baruchel I'm just pissed off

DoomCanoe on Mar 27, 2009


#11...Really!?!? You seriously must consider raising your standards in movies. I'm all for seeing Jay in more roles, but I'm hoping this is something more mystical and enjoyable than a soon-to-be-dated romp in modern day New York + magic. Plus I dont want to see Jay to give up his R-rated claim in comedy so damn soon. And c'mon....Cage is on-screen poison and simply awful to watch. This movie just seems weak and these pics—albeit sparse—do nothing to amp intrigue.

Voice of Reason on Mar 27, 2009


Nicolas Cage looks like the stupid kid that you dress up, and then he thinks it's funny that you think it's funny, all the while the joke is really on him. He doesn't need the money or the exposure, take a break and choose a good role!

Orangutang on Mar 27, 2009


ooooh i miss the days when Jay Baruchel was in Undeclared.

MiKeDeEz on Mar 27, 2009


OOOOH btw dosent Jay look like a character from beatle juice? (when the two parents strecth out there face)

MiKeDeEz on Mar 27, 2009


Why is NicK wearing Hugh Jackman's old duds from Van Helsings?

Papichulo on Mar 27, 2009


god this makes me laugh so much. it just seems like Nic doesn't care whether he makes good movies or not, he's just having a good 'ol time haha.

Itri on Mar 27, 2009


I have hopes, for Cage no matter what happens I'll always like him as an actor, ever since Matchstick Men and Lord Of War. I notice that he just dosen't try anymore, i mean after you make millions from acting and are okay in the finance part. I probably woldn't see the point of trying anymore either.

xerxex on Mar 27, 2009


Cage looks like Harry Dresden! hehe.

Dresden on Mar 27, 2009


Cage pulls out yet another wig! #1 - No. Tropic Thunder.

MBD on Mar 27, 2009


Hey #4, I'm sure he thought the same thing himself as he was Producer..or Exec producer of the Dresden Files tv show on Sci-Fi and is a fan of the book series, hehe.

Dresden on Mar 27, 2009


What happened to Alfred Molina? I thought the rumor was that he was playing the sorcerer. He can pull off those crazy eyes the sorcerer from "Fantasia" had.

Cody on Mar 27, 2009


There is no God, as the WOAT "actor" pulls another hoax in a sacred situation. Mr. Disney is turning over in his grave.

D-9 on Mar 27, 2009


Cage is the apex of the triangle. Poor Mickey. Cage will be out acted by the animated brooms carrying the water. Count on it! Hey 22, he never did. Good for you DoomCanoe! And kindbuddy, every post you make never makes any sense.
