Oscar winning actor Nicolas Cage has been offered the role of Ronald Reagan for a new biopic movie. Will he accept it?

Nicolas Cage offered role of Ronald Reagan to replace Will Ferrell

Nicolas Cage has been known to take any role that comes his way. He's reportedly being picky and is contemplating whether or not to take on the role for a new biopic film on 80s president Ronald Reagan, concerned that it might ruin his career.

Originally, Will Ferrell was scheduled to play the role but dropped out this past spring because two of the late president's kids slammed the film, suggesting that it was being marketed as a comedy and he was going to portray Reagan as senile. Cage's rep, Stephen Huvane would not comment except to say it's in the early stages and nothing has been determined yet. The movie depicts President Reagan in a flattering light and it is infuriating liberals.
