Morning Roundup: The Force is With Nicholas Cage

Nicholas Cage as every character in Star Wars

Say what you will about Nicolas Cage, he’s made some fairly amazing contributions to genre films throughout the years. And now, he gets to imagine what it would be like if he played every single character in Star Wars. If we’re lucky, maybe he’ll even get a role in the new movie.

Highlights of your daily offsite links include

I'm so sick of seeing it reported as a plan to blow up the moon. They never intended any such thing. Not only would it have been a bad idea, they were friggin atomic scientists. I'm sure someone for fun did the math on what kind of explosion it would take, but no one, at any point, had any kind of plan to try to do so. They just wanted to set off a small explosion on the moon to show that they had a delivery system for the bomb. Same reason as the entire space race. To show we could drop a bomb anywhere on the planet.
