Actor Nicolas Cage really Vampire 'Nicolas Cage'

So yeah, Nicolas Cage is a vampire, or some such member of the ageless walking dead. Or an immortal. Seriously.

An eBay vendor of antique photos is currently selling (for $1 million ... plus a backbreaking $2.75 for expedited shipping, natch) a Civil War-era photo of a man that looks like is Nicolas Cage. The photo is dated circa 1870 from Bristol, TN. The seller says the man in the image is the only unidentified person from an album of photography he found. As to how this might come to be an ageless Nicolas Cage, he posits:
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.
C'mon, knowing Nicolas Cage, that just sounds ... actually pretty plausible - especially after you recall how readily he ate (3) live cockroaches for Vampire's Kiss.

Extra good news: If you ARE Nicolas Cage and want to buy the photo, you get a 25% discount (and an extra 25 for not draining the seller). Being a senior, senior, senior citizen does have its perks. Oh, and do stick around for the vendor's Q&A at the bottom of the listing.
