Nicolas Cage is ready to hear the sounds of little footsteps pitter pattering around his home once more. ET's Will Marfuggi spoke to Cage -- who is expecting a child with his wife, Riko Shibata -- at the Los Angeles premiere of his new film, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, on Monday night, where Cage shared what he's most looking forward to about becoming a dad once again.
"I miss it all. I miss watching a child discover things for the first time," Cage, who is already a dad to Weston, 31 and Kal-El, 16, gushed. "The way the sunlight shines through a leaf. Taking them to have a lobster dinner and have them freak out at the table, 'What the heck is Daddy eating? What is that thing? It looks like a monster, like a giant bug!' All that stuff."
"I miss going to the toy store. I miss singing lullabies. I miss rocking in rocking chairs," he continued. "I was really hoping for another child. My boys are all grown up, so this will be great."
While Cage is more than ready for another round of fatherhood, he was a little more apprehensive to play an exaggerated, fictional version of himself in the action-packed comedy.
"I was terrified," Cage said of taking on the role. "There was no muscle in my body that told me I should play a character called, 'Nick Cage.' When I act, I like to maybe hide a little bit behind a character, inform a character with my imagination and my emotions, but when it's called 'Nick Cage,' I have to think about the other Cages running around."
"I don't want to humiliate my family. I don't want to, hopefully, humiliate myself," he added. "So, it was scary for sure."
In the film, on the brink of financial ruin, Cage accepts a $1 million offer to attend a wealthy fan's birthday party. Things take a wildly unexpected turn when a CIA operative recruits Cage for an unusual mission. Taking on the role of a lifetime, he soon finds himself channeling his most iconic and beloved characters to save himself and his loved ones.
As far as if Cage has done anything quite as wild in his real life for $1 million dollars, the 58-year-old actor said, "Not yet."
"Not yet. Might have some ideas, but not yet," he admitted.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent hits theaters April 22.
