An antiques dealer has put a Civil War photo on eBay he claims is proof that Cage isn't 47 but an immortal bloodsucker.
The picture, which dates from 1870 and carries a $US1 million price tag, bears an uncanny resemblance to the star.
Here's what the product description says:
"Original c1870 carte de visite 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, 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."
