Nicolas Cage Hams Up "Grindhouse" Trailer for Friends
"My friend Rob Zombie, I know him only socially," recalled Cage. "I like him. He's a nice man. We have good memories together over the years. He said would I do this part of Fu Manchu and I said sure."
It all sounds so simple, but Cage admits it's total camp. "One day, two lines, I mean it was just completely ridiculous. I haven't seen it. I'm not in any of the movies. Two seconds, that's it."

Edgar Wright ("Shaun of the Dead") and Eli Roth ("Hostel") are also contributing trailers.
