The internet is a strange, strange place—and the proof is in the weird fan art dedicated to actor Nicolas Cage. Here are some of our favorites.

1. Everything’s Better Caged

There’s no more famous fan art tribute to Nicolas Cage than the Tumblr dedicated to putting the actor in every great role. For example, here’s Nic Cage As Everyone's vision of what we would have gotten if Bryan Cranston was replaced with Mr. Cage in Breaking Bad. (The Tumblr also features Cage filling in for celebrities going about their everyday lives.)

2. The Mini-Fig Actor

Nic Cage As Everyone fan Evan O’Reilly created this delightful Nicolas Cage LEGO Mini-Fig so you can even act out your favorite Nic Cage As Everyone movie ideas in toy form.

3. Here Nic-y Nic-y

Nic Cage also makes a fantastic house pet. As the Tumblr Nicolas Cage Cats proves, if there’s anything that can make LOL cats better, it’s Nicolas Cage’s face.

4. A Whole New World

BuzzFeed’s Jen Lewis knew what she was doing when she photoshopped the internet’s favorite actor into these classic Disney scenes.

5. The Ultimate In Cage Costumery

For those who wish they could live their lives as Nicolas Cage, there is always the terrifying and fascinating Nic Cage Morphsuit created by Imgur user RubberDogTurdsGIFS. Admit it, you just can’t turn away from this monstrosity.

6. Face On

Since most of us can’t make our own custom morphsuit with our favorite actor all over it, you can always just print out the actor’s face and wear it as a mask like DeviantArt user Scalemate Judge.

7. The Nicolas Cage Movie Matrix

No, this isn’t a take on what it would be like if Nicolas Cage was in The Matrix (though you can see what that might look like thanks to Redditor JRWinn17). It’s instead a look at Cage movies on The Shniznit's graph that is based on how good the movie is and how serious or insane the actor is in the film. Note that not every movie he has been in is on this list—Face/Off and Ghost Rider are both missing, for example—but it gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect when you’re looking for a Nic Cage movie you haven’t already seen.

8. Digimon Cage

DeviantArt user Wingza made this great creation depicting two of his original Digimon characters to sell at Wondercon. I don’t know about you guys, but I think these two need to be added to the official Digimon franchise ASAP.

9. Uncanny Valley

When it comes to over-the-top strange fan art, it’s tough to beat artist Brandon Bird’s Uncanny Valley painting featuring a Japanese macaque version of the actor cuddled up with another macaque. Even the other snow monkey looks confused.

10. The Cage Couch

This amazing couch, designed by Redditor Vfn, is unfortunately only a Photoshop dream—for the moment. But the way the internet works, it’s probably only a matter of time until some huge nerd with a big bank account makes this thing into a reality.

Can't wait for the couch? Amazon seller Nicolas Cage Pillowcase exclusively sells items featuring the actor.

11. Fan Décor

If you need some more home decorating advice to show off your total Cage fandom, Deviant Art user hebishasa has some ideas on how to really Cage up your bedroom. I really like the idea of a plush Nic toy.

12. Nicolas Cage Roulette

You might argue that this web toy isn’t actually fan art, but Scott Luptowski’s tool that allows you to click a link and instantly find yourself streaming a Nicolas Cage film on Netflix is pretty cool.
