Nicolas Cage is a Vampire.
This particular theory may have emanated from a film that Nicolas Cage made in 1989 called the "Vampire's Kiss". The film tells the story of a mentally suspect literary agent -aren't they all- whose condition turns bad when he ends up thinking that he was bitten by a vampire and that he himself is becoming a demon of the night.
This article appeared on the - metro.co.uk - website and was authored by John McDonnell published 20th Sep 2011. It appears that it maybe the first instance of this celebrity vampire theory... Maybe....?
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.
The article says that the photograph was taken by a Professor GB Smith, however, my research indicates the photo’s subject is one Lieutenant G.B. Smith, a Confederate prisoner of war and it was taken in 1864 at Johnson’s Island prison camp in Ohio. By whom, I was not able to ascertain. The photo is real, the rest of the story….? It’s a great conspiracy theory regardless.
My research also indicates that Mr Jack Mord is the owner and operator of “The Thanatos Archive”, an archive of 19th Century post-mortem, mourning and medical photography (http://thanatos.net/).
Jack never did reach his reserve price.
If you think that Nick Cage is the only celebrity accused of being some sort of immortal, then you would be wrong. Have a look at these:

Seller of John Travolta ‘Time Traveler’ Photo Reveals Her Connection to Nicolas Cage ‘Vampire’ Photo
8:17 AM PDT 9/30/2011 by Patrick Kevin Day
The woman, who collects Victorian era post-mortem photography, says the photos are real, but the listings are a joke.
The seller of a 19th century ambrotype photograph that shows a man with a striking resemblance to John Travolta and is touted on eBay as being proof that Travolta is a time traveler says she and the man who tried to sell the Nicolas Cage “vampire” photo are good friends.
The woman, who prefers to go only by Fawn, says she and Jack Mord, the man behind the Cage “vampire” photo are both collectors of Victorian era post-mortem photography.
In an e-mail interview she tells THR, “Earlier this summer, Jack was joking about his Nicolas Cage vampire photograph and that he was listing it on eBay and I told him about my John Travolta time traveler ambrotype and he said list it because they were a good match.”
“We were just having a good time,” she continues.
Though the asking prices were outrageous — $1 million for the Cage lookalike pic and $50,000 for the Travolta lookalike — Fawn says the highest offer she ever got was $35.
“Most people were curious and just thought the photo was fake or that I was weird. It’s a really cool photograph but I never thought it would cause this sort of hoopla… funny.”
Fawn says she has not heard from Travolta about the photo and that she has no idea who the man in the ambrotype is. She acquired it in 2003 with no additional information.
A quick google about celebrity doubles will yield hundreds, if not thousands of photos, of celeb doubles. They say "we all have a double somewhere in the world". Maybe we should add to that little saying and say: "We all have a double somewhere in the world, at some time."? Anyway, having a double does not qualify as a conspiracy. Claiming that someone is hiding the fact they are a vampire or time traveller does.
