London: An old photograph, which dates back to the American Civil War shows a man identical to Nicholas Cage.
The antique dealer, Jack Mord, who has put up the image for auction on eBay and is asking for at least 1 million dollars, joked that the picture is proof of Cage being an immortal vampire rather than a 47-year-old actor.
Mord, from Seattle, Washington, who runs The Thanatos Archive, claims that he is a fan of Victorian-era photography and the image of the identical man is from around 1870.
“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’,” the Sun quoted him as saying.
“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.
“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,” he added.
