I’m not sure which planet, in which galaxy, dictates Nicolas Cage’s circadian rhythm, but he’s recently come out of dormancy, cycled into an active phase and was spotted roaming a New Orleans cemetery. Nic, having molted his previous leather skin, visited his own tomb in St. Louis 1 cemetery wearing shiny new leather skin. And he’s taken a new mate. According to People, Nic stopped by to commune with his eventual final resting place on Fat Tuesday wearing matching leather outfits with a new “mystery woman.” Coincidentally (?!?!), next month marks the 1 year anniversary of Nicolas Cage’s 4-day marriage to Erika Koike.
Naturally, when I read “mystery woman,” I feverishly hoped that Erika Koike: International Woman of Mystery, had come out of retirement for one last score, but unless she was desperate enough to undergo risky a Face/Off procedure, it’s not her. Erika’s probably out there on some remote archipelago being worshiped as the shape-shifting goddess she is. According to People:
The actor was spotted visiting the cemetery where his nine-foot tomb was built, all while holding hands with a new mystery woman.
Cage and the unidentified woman were seen acting close while leaving the cemetery and getting into a waiting car.
Metro News adds:
The couple held hands and wore matching leather outfits as they checked out the burial chamber Cage, 56, bought for himself in 2010. Its Latin inscription means ‘everything from one’.
One onlooker who saw them arrive during Mardi Gras said: ‘He was in there for 15 minutes looking at his tomb, then waved to everyone and said, “Have a great Mardi Gras”.’
Here’s Nic and his possible next future ex-wife leaving the cemetery.

Nic was spotted yesterday in New Orleans with the same girl he brought to the Independent Spirit Awards. He was visiting his tomb he had built a few years back. (Am I crazy for thinking this is a fun date 🤣) Love it! #nicolascage #niccage #celebrity #actor #neworleans #datenight #cemetery #tomb #followforfollowback #couple #celebritycouple

It ought to be a crime to be wearing this much leather only to get into a car instead of getting on a motorcycle. What is the leather lobby doing to prevent this sort of misconduct? Here’s a closer look at his tomb if you’ve never seen it before.

This is Nicolas Cage's tomb in New Orleans. Really. He paid to have another family's tomb exhumed and removed, and then erected this pyramid so that it overlooked Marie Laveau's. Apparently, this is why New Orleans locals hate Nic Cage. #niccage #neworleans #nicolascagetomb
Nic brought the same woman to the Independent Spirit Awards earlier this month.

Nic’s probably come out of hibernation because he’s got a new movie out called Color Out Of Space directed by fellow oddball Richard Stanley (The Island of Dr Moreau), where he plays an “alien-fighting alpaca farmer.” (via The Guardian).
