You might think that we're somehow joking or making fun with that headline, but we can assure - it's quite real.

In fact, the source of the article comes a fascinating interview Cage conducted with the New York Times wherein he discussed his propensity for freaking out in scenes, why he's acting so much and, yeah, just slipped in the middle of all of this is the fact that he's been searching for the Holy Grail.

You know, the supposed cup that Jesus used during the Last Supper and was then the vessel in which Jesus' blood was caught by Joseph of Arimathea at the crucifixion. That old chestnut. Well, while most people widely associated with the Holy Grail include Indiana Jones or the Knights Templar, prolific actor Nicolas Cage can be added to that same list.

As Cage tells it, the actor began researching the Holy Grail while he was staying sober, meditating three times and reading philosophy. "That was the time when I almost went on — you might call it a grail quest. I started following mythology, and I was finding properties that aligned with that," Cage explained. "For me it was all about where was the grail? Was it here? Was it there? Is it at Glastonbury? Does it exist?"

By all accounts, it's a topic that Cage not only takes seriously, but also has a huge amount of information stored on that subject. It's a pretty strange topic, but come on, if there was any actor who you'd think was going to search for the Holy Grail, it's Nicolas Cage.

The full interview is absolutely worth a read, not to mention the fact he talks openly about that dinosaur skull he bought and then had to hand back to the Mongolian government.

Nicolas Cage. What a guy.
