Nicolas Cage

Lord of War

16 Sep, 2005

Cage plays Yuri Orlov, an 80s era gun dealer in this crime drama directed by Andrew Niccol.  After watching a Russian mob shooting in a Brighton Beach restaurant, young Orlov is inspired to become a gun dealer and make a mountain of money, and soon buys his first gun. Before he knows it Orlov has it all – money, riches, a trophy wife. Until he catches the eye of agent Jack Valentine. Also starring Jarod Leto, Bridget Moynahan and Ethan Hawke.

Andrew Niccol picked up this Uzi machine-gun, pointed it at me and said, ‘Are you in this movie or not?’ I said, ‘Well, yeah…’
