Actor Weston Cage previewed his new movie “Mojave Diamonds.” #Powerjournalist Markos Papadatos has the scoop.

“Mojave Diamonds” was written and directed by Asif Akbar. The son of Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage, Weston plays the role of Paulie Palazzo. This action thriller stars MMA stars Chael Sonnen, Cowboy Cerrone, and Rampage Jackson.

The synopsis is: A former MMA fighter and his brothers must rescue their kidnapped family from a dangerous crime syndicate after $50M of illegal diamonds gets stolen.

“This is the only movie I did method acting with and this is the only character I gained weight for (which will never happen again),” he said. “I was 320 pounds, which I have lost 45 pounds at a time). As a transformative and fully chameleonic thespian I chose to portray the embodiment of vice, gluttony, excess, greed, tyranny, addiction and bloodlust.”

“Paulie Palazzo is like a mob boss with a military instead of mafia at his fingertips. I took inspiration from marvel comic’s character #kingpin a dark version of #lucianopavarotti and Las Vegas elites and business tycoons,” he said.

This is the film where my fiancé and I met as friends and then my life was changed. I love you, Ermelinda Manos, you receive visions from a god given gift I have only seen in you. You are unparalleled and I am so glad you are producing and writing as well as making these brilliant costumes of yours,” he said.
