19 Sep - An unknown antiques seller has posted an aged Civil War dated photo on online retail site, eBay, claiming that he has proof that A-list actor Nicolas Cage is a vampire, according to a report on Cinema Blend's website.
The photo, which dates from 1870 and carries a US $1 million asking price, bears an uncanny resemblance to the 47-year old "Leaving Las Vegas" star.
"Personally, I believe it's him and that he is some sort of walking undead/vampire, et cetera, 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," states the description of the photo.
"This is not a trick photo, it's an original photograph of a man who lived in Bristol, Tennessee sometime around the Civil War. Photographer is Professor G.B. Smith. A contact of mine forwarded this interesting article about the photographer, Smith. Turns out he was a confederate Civil War prisoner of war photographer. Guaranteed to be an original 1860s-70s photograph and not a modern reproduction, copy or photo manipulation."
The photo was apparently found in the back of an album that contained many death portraits from the Civil War era, but only the Nicolas Cage look-alike was not identified by name, stated the seller.
No stranger to vampires, Cage starred in the 80s cult movie "Vampire's Kiss", where he played a man who believed that we was turning into a vampire.
