Actor Nicolas Cage was arrested for domestic battery in New Orleans on Friday night—just a month after being escorted out of a restaurant by police. Apparently an intoxicated Cage was arguing loudly with his wife as the couple got in a taxi when the cabbie called police and said he'd seen Cage grab his wife, Alice. Police showed up and told them to "just go home," and then Cage, as is his wont, asked the police "Why don't you just arrest me?" They promptly did. The actor's been released on $11,000 bail after being charged with "domestic abuse and disturbing the peace." His wife isn't pressing charges and says there was no physical contact.

The Department of Homeland Security is getting rid of the color-coded terror alerts. On last night's Conan, he suggested a new system that will alert Americans with clips of Nic Cage's movies.
Will this flick be as bad as we all hope it will be? Um... YES. This horrible junket session is all the proof you'll need. Is it premature to start engraving 2011's Golden Razzie Award on January 6th?
If you have ever wondered to yourself, "Why do movies exist?" well, here is your answer: To provide a medium for Nicolas Cage to completely, utterly lose his shit, as he does, over and over, in this clip.
