Nicolas Cage 'Vampire' Claim Is Pretty Creepy (PHOTO)


Nicolas Cage vampire photoI always knew there was something off about Nicolas Cage, and not just his drunk and disorderly behavior, penchant for wacko baby names, or his eyebrows. I mean, that's like every other celebrity you throw a rock at on the street. Isn't it strange that the supposedly 47-year-old actor looks virtually unchanged since his first big hit Moonstruck all the way back in the '80s? Well, Jack Mord and I don't think so. And the Seattle photo archivist has a photo to prove it.

He claims the Civil War photo at left is none other than Nicolas Cage. And looking at it, there can only be three possible explanations:

1. It's a fake (Mord says it can be proven authentic).

2. It's a guy that just really looks like Cage, and Cage's youthfulness is due to plastic surgery tips he picked up from his co-star Cher while filming Moonstruck.

3. The photo proves Nicolas Cage is really a vampire!

I'm going with number 3.

I'll admit there are some holes in this theory. For some reason, Mord's auction of the photo on eBay today (for a cool $1 mil) was either pulled by the site or Mord himself, but not before explaining the origins:

Personally, I believe it's him and that he is some sort of walking undead/vampire, etcetera, 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. 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.

Mord seems like a legit guy, running a website called The Thanatos Archives, an "extensive collection of early post-mortem and memorial/mourning photography dating back to the 1940s." In other words, the photos are really, really old, like the stuff you had to develop in dark rooms back in the old days using lots of chemicals, chemicals that could get you high without the proper ventilation ...

Uh, anyway ...

Some things don't quite fit with this theory, like how Cage is able to run around in daylight, for instance, and I think he wore a crucifix in Moonstruck.

Nicolas Cage

But it explains more than it doesn't, like why he starred in that really bad flick Vampire's Kiss back in 1988, why he likes to make shoot-'em-up movies with lots of blood, why he built a $40,000 above ground tomb in a New Orleans cemetery, why he loves New Orleans so much (Interview With a Vampire, anyone?).

And it could certainly explain what the hell is up with son Weston Cage. Contrary to popular belief, vampires can make half-human, half-vampire babies.*

Is the above photo Nicolas Cage?

I'm sure this is supposed to be lighthearted and funny. Why are people serious?

This vampire business is just silly. Obviously Cage is a time traveler. ;)

I almost wish it were true. It makes for a very interesting tale. How about another reason? Reincarnation. There have been some strange tales concerning people who have described lives of past people without knowing in advance of the story of the person in the past. There have been cases where people have felt the wounds that certain soldiers in the Civil War had died from and I recall reading about a woman whose son knew way too much information about the Titanic and even as a young child the boy was afraid of water. The boy ended up drowning in this life time as well. Truth can be stranger than fiction.

It looks so much like him.  Tonya, I read somewhere too, that if you dont like things around your neck, like choakers(sp?), or turtlenecks, that you were strangled or hanged in a past life.

hmm it certainly is interesting to think about. one question, why hasn't he come up with a new hair style. I mean, I know men like to hold on to things, but there is a limit!

It really does look like him but I wouldn't be surprised to find out that it's a relative. I love New Orleans, am pale as chalk, and I'm a night person. But last time I checked, I do have a pulse, reflection, etc. It's a great coincidence though.

Kids between Vampires and humans have been part of mithology from way before Twilight.
Like, Alucard, from Castlevania? Son of Dracula and some woman?
I wish nobody would use Twilight as a reference for vampire stuff... They are NOT vampires! They are, uh, glowing pansies!

Might be a distant relative that he REALLY resembles.
