How Bruce Lee Made Nicolas Cage: 'He Changed My World' (Exclusive)

In the stylish martial arts film Outcast, Nicolas Cage plays a shadowy warrior known as the White Ghost. His aim is to defeat evil that has infiltrated a Chinese dynasty.

As Cage reveals in the above exclusive footage, the original inspiration for the fighter role — and his entire career — came from watching Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon when he was just 8 years old. “It wasn’t just because of the way he moved,” Cage explains. “The presence, the charisma coming off of him… I was, like,’ I wanna do that.’”

See if you can spot Lee’s influence on Cage when Outcast enters select theaters and goes on demand this weekend.
