Actor Nicolas Cage feared he would be bitten by a poisonous snake on the set of his upcoming movie Joe after he was forced to wrestle with the reptile on camera.

The Face/Off star reveals he worried about his safety during one particular scene with co-star Tye Sheridan and he feared the creature would not like being manhandled, according to the New York Post.

He says, "The challenge was not having it bite me, but also spit venom in Tye's face. So I had to hold it in a very careful way, and then when I tossed it... I was also worried that it would turn around and bite me on my neck.

"(It was) incredible. I felt that I was surfing the adrenaline of picking the snake up, and when I was done with it, I was exhausted."
