New behind the scenes footage was shared by Paisley Zerr, who directed the interview with Johnny for the Grammy Academy Awards, which was recorded in Johnny’s house, at night, last June 18 in Hollywood Hills.
Ps. It seems that the full length of the video interview is 6 minutes long!!!
Nicolas Cage talked a little bit about Johnny in a new interview for the “The New York Times” Magazine, today (August 7):
David Marchese (for the The New York Times
Magazine): > Let me ask you something unrelated: Is it
true that in the early 80′s you met Johnny Depp playing Monopoly?
> [Nicolas Cage]: “The true story is that we were already
friends. I was living in an old building in Hollywood called the Fontenoy, and
I think I ultimately rented the apartment to Johnny, and he started living
there. He was at the point in his career where he was selling pens or something
to get by. He would take my money and buy cocktails but wouldn’t tell me about
it. He admitted it later. But anyway, we were good friends, and we would play
Monopoly, and he was winning a game, and I was watching him and I said, ‘Why
don’t you just try acting?’ He wanted to be a musician at the time, and he told
me, ‘No, I can’t act.’ I said, ‘I think you can act.’ So I sent him to meet
with my agent. She sent him out on his first audition, which was ’A Nightmare
on Elm Street.’ He got the part that day. Overnight sensations don’t happen.
But it happened with him.”
Once again, Thank you Nicolas Cage for making this happen!
Ps: The photos above were taken 31 years ago during the premiere of “Decline of Western Civilization Part 2: The Metal Years” a rock and roll documentary premiered at Cinerama Dome in, Los Angeles in June 1, 1988.
