‘I’m open to anything’ – Nicolas Cage’s deadpan response to playing Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper in the film

OSCAR winner Nicolas Cage joked he was “open” to the possibility of playing Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper in a film.

The Hollywood star admitted he couldn’t rule it out while speaking to Forest fan and comedian Matt Forde on Absolute Radio.

Forde told his guest how Cooper turned the Reds into championship contenders after taking over in September.

The presenter explained how Forest “used to be very good” and “won the European Cup twice”.

He added they were in the relegation zone when Cooper arrived and are now “close to being promoted back to the Premier League”.

Forde went on to make the tongue-in-cheek suggestion that Cage, 58, could play Cooper, 42, in a film about Forest’s exciting season.

Cage replied, “Well I can’t answer that as I don’t know anything about Mr. Cooper.

“But I mean I’m open to anything as long as it’s definitely a good script.”

It’s far from the first time an American A-lister has sprinkled some of their star dust on an English football club.

Pop legend Michael Jackson’s connections to Fulham famously led to a statute of thriller stars being erected outside Craven Cottage.
