You mean Val KILMER right? lol Yeah he was awesome in that. I think success went to his head and he became a prima donna. Then he just became fat. I liked him in Bad Lieutenant: New Orleans. He's a good character actor but doesn't have the presence to carry a movie on his own.
I even googled his name just to make sure and still got it wrong lol
And i reckon he was only good in Bad Lieutenant because of Herzog, the guy even made Cage give a good performance...
Werner Herzog? I had no idea that he directed Bad Lieutenant!
The man is an absolute legend, by the way. He once cooked and ate his shoe for losing a bet, shrugged off being shot by a sniper during an interview, and is just a highly eccentric man in general. He also made one of the absolute greatest films ever with Aguirre, The Wrath of God.
