Nic Cage In Talks To Play Mike “The Mouth” Matusow In Biopic
The Mouth address what's going on in his head.
When one hears that Mike “The Mouth” Matusow's book “Check-Raising The Devil” had been optioned to potentially make a major motion picture from – the next question is “who will play Mikey?”
According to a new interview conducted by Pokerlistings at the WSOP, it may just be actor Nicholas Cage. If it would be Cage, it wouldn’t be his first time playing a Las Vegas degen as he has a previous turn in a Sin City flick with his critically acclaimed, Oscar-winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas.
It also wouldn’t be his first time hunting for treasure on screen – National Treasure, anyone?
They’ve talked to one person already and he’s real interested plus he lives in Vegas. They’re talking about Nic Cage so we’ll see what happens.
I don’t know, he’s a little older. I mean he’s my age now but they can make people look younger for the early parts of the movie. That’s an idea.
Mike goes on to talk about how he thinks a movie of his book could be good for poker as well as people who have the same “mental issues” that he struggles with.
Like I’m not going lie, yesterday I got out in front $10,000 in the 2-7 tournament and lost a small pot and all of a sudden thinking, “Oh my God, I’m the worst. I’m dying. What am I gonna do?”
I wanted to kill myself and got super suicidal and I couldn’t f*****g think. I was almost crying. And this happens to me quite often. I couldn’t play, I was negative, and it was just bad.
Matusow has his good days and bad days. When it’s bad, it’s real bad and when it’s good Mike says he’s a damn good player.
