Imagine TV’s House quitting the medical field and joining the New Orleans Police Department. That’s how Werner Herzog’s new film, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of New Orleans,” can be summed up to.
Starring Nicolas Cage as Terence McDonough, a heroin addicted “up-holder of the law” with an ego-problem, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of New Orleans” is gearing up to be Herzog’s most mainstream and offbeat film yet.
Nicolas Cage has been on a downward spiral for the past couple years, but I have no doubt that this is going to be the revival of his career.
In addition to Cage, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of New Orleans” stars Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, Fairuza Balk, Jennifer Coolidge, Vondie Curtis Hall, Shawn Hatosy, Denzel Whitaker, Xzibit, Shea Wigham, Katie Chonacas and Brad Dourif.

Wow I wanna see it!
I usually stay away from anything Val Kilmer but : ” a heroin addicted “up-holder of the law” with an ego-problem, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of New Orleans” ” always makes me weak in the knees. So yeah, I’ll definitely keep my eyes open for that one and Cage looks absolutely amazing!
The writer is more confident about its success than I am.
