Nicolas Cage as Ned Hanlan ?
The good news for Cage is that his portrayal of Canadian rowing champion Hanlan in “The Boy in Blue” was one of the finest performances of his career. The bad news is that it was one of the worst biopic performances in history, on account of his hammy delivery on an already saccharine role. To be fair, not even Daniel Day Lewis could pull off a line like “This is making me sick, wearing these monkey suits!” But it sounds so much worse coming from Ghost Rider. —Jeff Royer
