Now vampires aren’t really new territory for Louisiana. New Orleans in particular has a habit for attracting the unusual- and any trip to the French Quarter will reveal that! The otherworldly quality of this town is why Anne Rice chose it for the setting in her book “Interview with the Vampire” which was later made into a movie starring Brad Pitt. In this millennium, “True Blood” is being filmed locally and is set in a fictitious town between NOLA and Baton Rouge which furthers this reputation of New Orleans as a rendezvous hotspot for the undead.
Nick hasn’t really been helping his case by occupying the Lalaurie House in the French Quarter when he is in town. Cage purchased the mansion several years ago, despite the infamy of it being the “most haunted house in the city”. Reportedly, when in town, him and his family usually don’t venture out and spend most of their time inside this haunted house. This has neighbors wondering if it is the stardom or the sunshine that keeps them indoors. Perhaps this home was what influenced Cage’s son to assume the position of lead-singer in a black metal band called, “Eyes of Noctum”.
Huh? Black metal bands? Haunted House? Creepy roles? Not to mention his public outburst last year? With all the creepy details of this actor’s personal life, it seems like this 1870’s photo might just be the final nail in the coffin. Pardon the pun. Regardless of the truth in this rumor, this Hollywood star is certainly a long way from a “City of Angels”.
