Actor Nicolas Cage turned down a role in the Netflix series Master of None, created by actor-comic Aziz Ansari.
Ansari revealed that he, along with co-creator Alan Yang, contacted Cage to do a cameo in the second season of the show, reported The Independent.
“I think we did go out to Cage and quickly received a ‘... No,’” IndieWire quoted Ansari as stating at an LA screening earlier this week.
The actor is the centre of one of season two’s most memorable jokes - he’s the star of the fake movie Death Castle - which features in the standout episode New York, I Love You.
They wanted Cage to lend his voice to the film which can be heard off-screen in the episode’s final scene. But Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg voiced Cage instead.
Emma Watson and Fast & Furious actor Tyrese Gibson feature in the fake movie within the episode.
The episode is notable for featuring a completely silent segment starring two deaf characters using only sign language.
