Nicolas Cage Settles Overdue DVD Rental Bill
(LOS ANGELES) -- Nicolas Cage has settled an outstanding debt with a Los Angeles video store. TMZ reports the star had rented A Star is Born and The King of Comedy and run up late fees of $224.48.
The Old Bank DVD Store used its Facebook page to attract the attention of Cage, who finally called the owner to apologize, blaming an assistant, according to TMZ. The store owner described Cage’s mood as "cool” and said he did not take offense for being called out on Facebook.
The store ended up charging the actor $20 in late fees for each movie overdue and another $20 each to keep them, for a total fine of $80.
An update on the store’s Facebook page reads, “As a token of our appreciation for all the fine work Mr. Cage has done in film, with any rental this weekend, our customers may also pick one Nicolas Cage movie for free – and that’s like half our store, I mean seriously, that’s one hard working actor ;-). Welcome back anytime Nic.”
