Nicholas Cage is arguably the greatest bad actor that's ever lived. Some people would say it's Shatner, and while he is great at being terrible, Nick Cage has him beat. Inexplicably and against all logic Nick Cage has made a ton of money over the decades chewing scenery. This puts him in an upper echelon of rich dudes with too much money. This allows them to purchase really weird stuff at exorbitant prices. Take, for example, the T-Rex skull he bought in 2007. He paid $276k for it and outbid fellow rich crazy guy Leo DiCaprio for it. Well, it turns out that the skull was stolen. Who steals a dinosaur skull? Well, who steals the Declaration of Independence? Nick Cage. Actually, Nick seems to have not known about the theft of the skull from Mongolia and he turned it over to the cops as soon as he found out.

This means that he's in the market for some new dinosaur bones. One might wonder why he would want a T-Rex skull in his house. The answer is simple: he wanted to clone the T-Rex and ride around LA on it. He wouldn't have to worry about traffic and he would look amazing.
