  • John Travolta or Nicolas Cage

    John Travolta is definately the veteran of the two, because he was a star from the late 70's. I do believe I prefer Nicolas Cage, I don't know I just think he is a better actor and I like most of his movies. Anyway, I leave you be the judge of that.

    Here is alittle about John Travolta

    Born: 18 February 1954
    Birthplace: Englewood, New Jersey
    Best Known As: The star of Saturday Night Fever and Pulp Fiction
    John Travolta was a huge star in the late 1970s, thanks to the success of TV's Welcome Back, Kotter and the movies Carrie (1976), Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Grease (197. His career since has been a marvel of highs and lows: Moment By Moment (197 was a legendary bomb, but Urban Cowboy (1980) was a pop culture trend-setter; he bombed again in Blow Out (1981) and Perfect (1983), yet he was in the financially successful comedy series Look Who's Talking (1989-93); he was hailed for a "comeback" and received an Oscar for his role in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction (1994, co-starring Uma Thurman), but the critics famously held their noses for Battlefield Earth (2000). In spite of the lows, he is one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood and keeps making movies. He starred in Swordfish (2001, with Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman), Basic (2003, with Pulp Fiction co-star Samuel L. Jackson) and Be Cool (2005's sequel to Get Shorty, co-starring Vince Vaughn), and in 2007 he had a memorable role as a Baltimore housewife in the musical film Hairspray (also starring Christopher Walken

    Here's alittle about Nicolas cage

    Born: 7 January 1964
    Birthplace: Long Beach, California
    Best Known As: Oscar-winning star of Leaving Las Vegas

    Name at birth: Nicolas Coppola

    Nicolas Cage made his film debut in 1982's Fast Times at Ridgemont High , but it was his role in the hit Valley Girl (1984) that launched his screen career. Cage was suddenly a reliable star after the 1987 comedy Raising Arizona (with Frances McDormand) and Moonstruck (with Cher), known for his intensity and penchant for improvisation on the set. He won an Oscar as the self-destroying drunk in Leaving Las Vegas in 1995, and by the end of the decade was starring in big-budget action movies, including The Rock (1996, with Sean Connery), Con Air (1997, with Ving Rhames), Face/Off (1997, opposite John Travolta) and Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000, with Angelina Jolie). In 2003 he was again Oscar-nominated for playing nervous screenwriter Charlie Kaufman in the offbeat drama Adaptation. His other films include Bringing Out the Dead (1999, directed by Martin Scorsese), National Treasure (2004), The Weather Man (2005), and The Wicker Man (2006, with Ellen Burstyn).

    Cage is the nephew of filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola; Cage's father is Coppola's brother... Cage was married to actress Patricia Arquette from 1995-2001, and to Lisa Marie Presley (daughter of Elvis Presley) briefly in 2002 (they separated after four months of marriage but weren't formally divorced until 2004). He married Alice Kim, a former waitress, in 2004; their son Kal-el Coppola Cage was born on 3 October 2005. Cage is reportedly a comic book fan, and Kal-el is the birth name of the fictional superhero Superman. Cage also has a son, Weston, born in 1990 to Cage and his then-girlfriend Christina Fulton.
