Depp 'Lends Cage A Helping Hand'

Subscribe to Johnny Depp alerts

Johnny Depp has reportedly offered to help Nicolas Cage sort out his financial woes - to repay the Con Air star for kickstarting his Hollywood career.
Cage has been forced to reassess his cash flow after being hit with a $6 million (£3.75 million) tax bill, allegedly due to his former financial adviser's monetary mismanagement.
And Depp, who earns an estimated $68.8 million (£43 million) annually, is said to be eager to help his old pal out of his reported debt - because Cage helped him land his first major role in A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984.
A source tells Britain's Daily Express, "Johnny called Nic and basically told him not to worry and he'd help him and sort everything out. Johnny feels he owes his career to Nic and now wants to repay him - if Nic agrees. Johnny has never forgotten what Nic did for him."
Cage has been busy offloading his property empire in a bid to boost his bank balance - he recently sold his Los Angeles mansion and a castle in Germany, while two of his multi-million dollar properties in New Orleans, Louisiana went under the hammer on Thursday (12Nov09).

I really love To see Johnny Depp in his pirates,and All his movies, have never disappointed me at all. He's a lot like Val Kilmer , the way they both take there parts to another demetion. I wanted to ask johnny, if he would considered making a film with Val Kilmer I think your both great, I also would like to see a pairing of these to mastermindstogether. How about that???? I'd love a answer Sharon
