Nicolas Cage accused of tax fraud

According to, Nic Cage is being accused of tax fraud. Namely, using Saturn Productions to "wrongly write off $3.3 million in personal expenses."

And before you pause to reflect on the irony that Cage is currently packing cinemas in a film called 'National Treasure: Book of Secrets' have a look at that figure again. $3.3 million. That's a lot of money for alleged "limos, meals, gifts, travel."

A spokesman for Cage says the money was spent on 'security needs' which sounds a lot more realistic to us, but we tend to think the best of our favourite actors. I mean, cut the guy some slack - he was in Leaving Las Vegas and Raising Arizona so, if anything, America owes him money for promoting US states.

Oh, doesn't it work like that? Fine, ignore us and go to the imdb for more details (opens in new tab) .
