When the going gets weird, Nicolas Cage namedrops druids.
- Screen Junkies: You once shared with me the Hunter S. Thompson quote: "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro." How did you apply that to Season of the Witch?
- Nicolas Cage: Well, in that case it’s probably weird in the true sense of the word, meaning W-Y-R-D, not W-E-I-R-D. The interesting thing about the word “weird” is it’s almost a holy word in that it was an ancient Celtic Druid way of life meaning literally to transform or to turn. That was the etymology of the word weird as we know it today because when you call somebody weird, it’s usually because they’re not acting like themselves or they’re turning into something else.
