Through his father, Cage is the nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola and actress Talia Shire, as well as the cousin of director Sofia Coppola and actors Robert Carmine and Jason Schwartzman.

Early in his life he was diagnosed with "Elvis Complex," a terminally annoying disease that causes the affected to talk and act like Elvis Presley.
