According to a SXSW rep, however, some unexpected health concerns kept Cage grounded after the actor began experiencing a bout of dizziness before leaving for Austin, and thought it best to stay put in Las Vegas.

“This was definitely unforeseen,” a spokesperson for the festival tells the New York Post“s Page Six. “He had dizziness before boarding and they checked his blood pressure, which was high.”;
