And while many actors bemoan the fact they have nothing realistic to work with while shooting the scenes - Cage insists he enjoys the work after the challenges he faced playing twin brothers in 2002's "". He tells Screen Crave, "Acting is imagination. It's acting, that's what it's all about. I actually enjoy working with green screen because I can imagine all that stuff happening."

"I really cut my teeth on a movie I made called 'Adaptation' where I had to imagine four page dialog scenes with my twin brother who's nothing more than a tennis ball and a gas can. So, I was really up for it." He goes on sharing, "I do understand sometimes when actors say, 'There's no one to talk to' or 'You can't react to'. There's truth in that but for me, I've always enjoyed green screen and blue screen."
