that's Hollywood for you: Mike "The Mouth" Matusow cannot actually play Mike "The Mouth" Matusow because Nicolas Cage is a lot better Mike "The Mouth" Matusow than the original Mike "The Mouth" Matusow. hail the master of everybody and everything Nicolas Cage- rumors go tha in his next epic movie he will have the role of pochui's precisely shaved balls ("Avatar: Pochui's laser shaved balls"
