Helberg pulls off a pretty convincing Cage as he acts out yet another addition to the Internet’s unexplainable fascination with the “Nic Cage as Everyone” meme, which features countless doctored photos of Cage’s face on virtually every body one can think of.
Of course, the blog that started it, NicCageAsEveryone.blogspot.com, featured Cage as Lincoln back in 2010 — an epic image by all rights — but Helberg acting it out is somehow even funnier.
