Nicolas Cage isn't letting legal drama affect his career.

Following his arrest on Friday for domestic abuse, public intoxication and disturbing the peace, the Academy Award-winning actor, 47, was back to work Monday on the New Orleans set of his latest film, Medallion.

"He is always extremely professional," a set source tells PEOPLE of Cage. "He is a dedicated actor when he is at work, and I don't think people would hire him so much if he wasn't."





Cage, who the source says is currently "in fine shape and ready to work," isn't wasting any time diving into challenging parts of filming.

The source tells PEOPLE Cage is "very excited about" doing some of his own stunts for some action sequences he will take on later this week.
