Neil Patrick Harris to play Nicolas Cage’s agent in new satire

Actor Neil Patrick Harris will be helping to poke fun at Nicolas Cage’s career after signing on to play his talent agent in the upcoming action-comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.

The Ghost Rider star is set to portray a fictionalized version of himself as a debt-ridden Cage, desperate to land a part in Quentin Tarantino’s next movie, only to find himself taking on a vastly different role as a real-life informant for the C.I.A. after agreeing to attend the birthday party of a Mexican super fan – a billionaire who is believed to be a drug cartel kingpin.

The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal has been cast as the superfan, while Tiffany Haddish will play a rogue government agent, and Catastrophe actress Sharon Horgan has boarded the project as Cage’s ex-wife.

Now Harris has also joined the fun as the actor’s agent.

Production on the film is already underway, with Tom Gormican directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Kevin Etten.

The movie is currently scheduled for release in March (2021).
