'Proof Nicolas Cage is vampire' | The Sun |NewsTHIS old photograph appears to show actor Nicolas Cage made up for his latest movie role – but in fact the picture dates back to the American Civil War.
An antique dealer has put the image up for auction on eBay and is demanding at least $1MILLION – the equivalent of £635,000.
The seller jokes that the picture is proof Cage is not 47 as he claims – but an immortal vampire.
The image of a man looking identical to the Con Air star dates from around 1870.
Jack Mörd, from Seattle, Washington, says the photo was taken of a man in Bristol, Tennessee.
He said: "My theory is that he allows himself to age to a certain point, maybe 70, 80 or so, then the actor 'Nicolas Cage' will 'die'.
"But in reality, the undead vampire 'Nicolas Cage' will have rejuvenated himself and appeared in some other part of the world, young again, and ready to start all over."
Mr Mörd runs The Thanatos Archive and says he is a fan of Victorian-era photography.
He assured prospective bidders: "This is not a trick photo of any kind and has not been manipulated in Photoshop or any other graphics program.
'It's an original photo of a man who lived in Bristol, TN, sometime around the Civil War."

Interesting....perhaps he got his hands on a image Gage had done with authentic period equipment. However, the rest is BS.....
photo-shop on that old B&W still.
The chin is different.
They say everybody has a look alike.
Once my second wife kept asking me what I was doing walking around the university while I was at work.
I had a very close look alike, but I never got to meet him.
Coincidences happen as well.
This one damn near got me divorced.
Me and my third wife had just bought a house in Richmond, va.
Then we started getting these phone calls saying if I didn't pay my outstanding child support in Newport News, they were going to issue an arrest warrent.
She was ballistic, why was I not paying my child support, and why didn't I tell her I had a kid.
It went so far that I almost did get arrested, and my wages garnished.
The documents showed that a guy with the exact same first and last name as me had lived in the house we bought 2 years before we did.
They called it all off when it was discovered that we had different social security numbers.
Exact same first and last name as mine, and he had lived in the same house.
How likely is that?
Whatever works, use it.
A good idea stands on its own value independent of authorship.
If it stands or falls on the credibility of the author, maybe it isn't such a good idea.
Damn Bart that was some of the worst luck i have ever heard about.Bad thing is in those situations the more you try to defend yourself the more guilty you look Lol.
Very funny, Scotty. Now beam down my clothes.
I believe that's an authentic picture from the 1870's but I don't believe its Mr. Cage. There are only so many ways the human face can be put together. We all look a little like someone else, maybe be even EXACTLY like someone else.
My son, when young, looked just like Bill Gates Mug shoot. We used to joke with him about that.
One day I was going through a friend of mine's facebook photos and his sister looks exactly like my friend Melody. I mean EXACTLY!! Right down to the hair style.
Yeah I pretty much think it's a lookalike.
