Andy Samberg's impression of actor Nicolas Cage, made famous during his recurring SNL Weekend Update sketch, will certainly come to mind when you hear what Cage wants to do next. Samberg, in character, would say "It's my dream to appear in every film ever made" and "How am I NOT in that movie!!!" Cage wants to appear in, what will surely be, a sequel to "The Batman" currently in theatres. The actor who once was considered decades ago to play Superman wants to play the villain Egghead. Egghead was made famous in the 1960's Batman television series by the late Vincent Price.

Cage told reporters, “The villain that Vincent Price played on the 1960s show, Egghead, I think I want to have a go at Egghead. I think I can make him absolutely terrifying. And I have a concept for Egghead. So let them know over at Warner Bros., I’m down for Egghead.”
