LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Practically everyone has seen him in one movie or another. Now, several people in WAVE Country have seen Nicolas Cage in person.

"Why is this happening in Clarksville, Indiana you know?" Anthony Stepp Jr. said about the Cage sightings.

Cage was spotted at VisionWorks and a Target in Clarksville. He was also spotted at the Louisville Zoo.

He was also spotted at a Toys R Us.

"I hear this voice, I'm like, I know that voice," Stepp said.

Stepp dismissed the voice at first, thinking there was no way it was Nicolas Cage - until he got a look.

"I went back to my wife and I'm like, 'Kim, Kim, it's him. He really is in Toys R Us in Clarksville,'" Stepp said.

While Cage bought some board games, Stepp coaxed his daughter to ask for a picture.

"She's like, 'No, Dad. I'm kind of scared. No you do it, you do it.' I'm like, 'You do it," he said.

"I can't, like I'm so nervous, I didn't know what to say," Stepp's daughter, Cheyenne, said.

The picture of Cage and Cheyenne has now been all over the internet.

"Nicolas Cage in Clarksville" was trending on Facebook Tuesday.

"He was just so nice and he was just an amazing person," Cheyenne said.

Cage is here filming a scary movie called Mom and Dad. Some of the movie will be filmed in a top secret location in Jefferson County.

For Stepp, that is close enough.

"I'm smiling from ear to ear because it's really a cool thing to happen," he said.
