The series marks Cage’s latest venture into TV. In 2020, Cage appeared in the sci-fi martial arts movie 'Jiu Jiutsu' and lent his voice to the animated sequel 'The Croods: A New Age', in which he reprised his role of family patriarch Grug Crood. One of Cage’s next films is a meta action comedy titled 'The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent', where he will play a fictionalized version of himself to save his family from a crazy superfan.

Who is Nicolas Cage dating?

In May, 2020, Daily Mail reported that 56-year-old Cage was seen holding hands with his new girlfriend 26-year-old Riko Shibata, while the couple was on their way to a  museum date in New York City, after divorcing his fourth wife Erika Koike. Apart from her relationship with the 'Snowden' star, Riko's job and other background information are unknown. It's also unclear when exactly the two began dating.

What is Nicolas Cage's dating history?

Before he ever walked down the aisle, Cage and then-girlfriend, 'Lucinda's Spell' star Christina Fulton welcomed a son together named Weston Coppola Cage in 1990. Later, he tied the knot with 'The Act' actress Patricia Arquette in 1995 and the two remained married until 2001. Within hours of their meeting in 1987, then 23-year-old Cage proposed to the then 18-year-old.

She made a list of artifacts she wanted him to source then and there, including, but not limited to, a wedding dress from the Lisu tribe in South East Asia, "J.D. Salinger's autograph, a black orchid and a Bob's Big Boy statue — a Caddy-size piece of fiberglass sculpture."

After a year from his divorce, in 2002, Nicolas wed Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of the late singer Elvis Presley. The couple split less than 110 days later, but their divorce wasn't finalized until 2004.

His longest-lasting marriage was to 'Next' star Alice Kim, whom he married just two months after his divorce from Lisa Marie was finalized. Nicolas and Alice's wedding took place in a California ranch in late July of 2004, and they had a son together named Kal-El (which was inspired by Superman's birth name) in 2005. Alice and Nicolas announced their intention to end their marriage in early 2016, and their divorce was finalized by the end of the year.

Nicolas's fourth and the shortest marriage took place in a Las Vegas chapel in March of 2019. He and his wife, make-up artist Erika Koike decided to end their marriage just four days after they walked down the aisle. Just days after tying the knot, Cage solicited an annulment on March 27, citing reasons that included being too drunk to understand his actions when he married Koike.

The actor said he and Koike drank “to the point of intoxication” before the wedding and argued he wasn’t aware of Koike’s “relationship with another person.”

'History of Swear Words' will air on Netflix on January 5, 2020, at 1.30 om.
