Don’t call me by my father’s name!
He filed for the name change on February 14, 2018, paying $425 for the filing fee.
Weston’s father, the National Treasure actor born Nicolas Coppola, changed his name in an effort not to be accused of nepotism since he was the nephew of the famous director, Francis Ford Coppola.
His son did the opposite, switching from Cage to Coppola, but on his Instagram page he still listed himself as Weston Cage.
2017 was a disastrous year for Weston, who was slapped with DUI and hit-and-run charges back in February, after getting in a fender bender and speeding off, leading cops on a wild chase.
His ex-wife was granted a protective order against her estranged husband during their divorce proceedings.
He was also ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Danielle and her home, except for “brief and peaceful” contact regarding visits with the children, until June 14, 2018.
Weston was 15 when appeared in his dad’s movie Lord of War and had several projects in production, according to his IMDB page, where he was also still listed as Weston Cage.
