Is Nicolas Cage really a vampire?

An online entrepreneur is selling a photo from 1870 on eBay which he says proves Nicolas Cage is a vampire.

Jack Mord is asking for $1million for a photo of a man, believed to have lived in Tennessee around the time of the American Civil War, who has a resemblance to the Hollywood star.

Mr Mord, a dealer in antique images, believes the photo is of Nicolas Cage himself and proves the actor is a member of the ‘walking undead’.

The eBay listing for the photo reads: ‘Original c.1870 carte de visite [a type of small photograph] showing a man who looks exactly like Nick Cage.

‘Personally, I believe it’s him and that he is some sort of walking undead / vampire… who quickens / reinvents himself once every 75 years or so.

‘150 years from now, he might be a politician, the leader of a cult, or a talk show host.’

The seller claims he found the photo at the back of an album of Civil War-era portraits, but he noticed there was something inconsistent with the other pictures.

He said: ‘All of the other people in the album, living and dead, were identified by name – this man was not.’

Fellow eBay members have left ridiculing messages on the page for Mr Mord’s listing, questioning why Nicolas Cage has aged so much over the past decade if he really is immortal.

The seller responded: ‘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 Mord says the photo was taken by Professor GB Smith, a confederate Civil War prisoner of war photographer, and he has promised to allow the person who buys it to authenticate its age before the sale goes through.
