Nicolas Cage is taking on the role of a lifetime as… Nick Cage in the new action-comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. But he’s not the only one — the talented Pedro Pascal will be playing a dangerous superfan, Javi, who hires Nick to attend his birthday party for one million dollars.
The result of Cage and Pascal sharing the screen together immediately had the internet freaking out in the best way because the trailer manages to give the perfect taste of the insanely fun dynamic between Nick and Javi as well as the story, while also leaving everyone ready for more.
Some waxed poetic about how Cage and Pascal together was perfection.
While others were proud of everything that Pascal has done in his career, especially in the last two years.
And some were just swooning over Pascal in general.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent also stars Sharon Horgan, Ike Barinholtz, Alessandra Mastronardi, Jacob Scipio, Lily Mo Sheen, Neil Patrick Harris, and Tiffany Haddish.
Pedro Pascal is also set to play Joel in The Last of Us for HBO. Based on the highly popular game it tells the story of a man who has to guide a young woman in a post-apocalyptic world. He is also working on season 2 of The Mandalorian where he also guides a young life, an alien named Grogu, through a dangerous world.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent will be released in theaters on April 22.
