This is a story of an actor's unshakeable faith rewarded.

After suffering through the meager, combined $36 million grosses of The Weather Man and Lord of War, Nic Cage called out to his Creator to deliver unto him a role that would both challenge his skills and allow him to heal the recent wounds to his career. Mere moments later, his prayers were answered by a vessel of His infinite mercy, in the semi-human form of an agent relaying an offer to star in World Trade Center, an unparalleled opportunity to show off his chops while waiting for the Lord to get on the ball and push National Treasure 2 into production.
