A haunted mansion in New Orleans
Remember Madame LaLaurie from “American Horror Story: Coven?” Well, she was a real person, and a real crazy serial killer, and Cage bought the actual house that most of her crimes went down in. He doesn’t own it anymore, because as a cheesy ghost tour guide once told me, no one has owned it for more than 5 years since LaLaurie disappeared.

Dinosaur Skulls
Cage outbid Leonardo DiCaprio for a 67-million-year-old Tarbosaurus skull that was valued at $300,000. This wasn’t the only dinosaur noggin he owns… I’m guessing he uses them as extremely ornate party punch bowls.
