Umm... are you going to drink that Skooma?

In a lovely little piece of news, or some of the rawest trolling from a bonafide superstar, the almighty source of all memes Nicolas Cage has come to the defense of his Outcast co-star Hayden Christensen's, whom you may remember as Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars Episodes 2 & 3, performances in the aforementioned sci-fi prequels.

In an interview with IGN, St. Nic seemed honestly humble and truthful as he revealed his feelings toward Christensen's much maligned take on the conflicted Jedi.

Here's a snippet of the interview...

And here's the transcript for whomever cannot watch...

And so, I watched George’s movies, and the work Hayden did with George, and I was very impressed with Hayden’s sort of edgy, dangerous, dark and still soulful performance. I thought it was superb. And so I really connected with him. PLus he has a look in his eyes that I respond to, because it almost feels like a familial, he's got that sad thing going on that I've always been accused of having in my eyes, so I thought we would be a good match together...

Some reassuring words there from an actor that has had his fair share of tough press over the last decade. Whether or not Cage's inspired words will help dissuade Star Wars fans from their hatred is another thing, but here's hoping Hayden Christensen will find solace in his upcoming venture in Outcast.
