For everyone who thinks it's only the average Joe and the poor being hit by the recession, it's not. Nicholas Cage Is now among the forclosure victims. Two homes foreclosed on in New Orleans and other properties slated to be foreclosed in California. Nicholas Cage is not a "struggling" actor but an established and sucessful one.
Their is another lesson to be learned from this also. What goes around, comes around. Back in the 80's Nicholas Cage became friends with a struggling musician and introduced that young man to his agent. Today that musician is one of Hollywood's most sought after actors, Johnny Depp. It seems that Johnny has never forgotten what Nicholas did for him, since he has offered to help Cage when he heard about the financial difficulties his friend was having.
You never know what role someone whose life you touch today will play in your life the future.
