Fashion statement: Nic Cage's blond ambition
So, what's the deal with Nicolas Cage's new blond coif?
"I'm doing a movie called Drive Angry and I'm trying to tap into my Celtic roots, so I dyed it blond."
Or so claims Cage, who surfaced over the weekend at San Francisco's Wondercon 2010 with a mass of brittle straw-like bleach blond locks hanging lankly from his ample cranium.
Hmm. Perhaps the movie synopsis offers some clue as to why the role might require him to make like a low-rent Bret Michaels.
"Drive Angry" is, according to IMDB.com, the story of "a vengeful father [who] chases after the men who killed his daughter."
Meh. Boring. In the interest of working Cage's "Celtic roots" into the movie plot and spicing up things a bit, perhaps this would be a bit more marketable:
"The story of a vengeful father who chases after the beauty school dropout who totally fried his hair (oh, and the men who killed his daughter)."
But, is it all Nic's hair? Did he really grow a five-inch mop since sporting this closely-shorn look in September of 2009? Or did his stylist perhaps recycle Britney Spears's weave cast-offs to give Cage's new 'do some length? And, if so, should he perhaps take a lesson from Tom Hanks, who failed ginormously with his own role-driven hair extensions?
