Nicolas Cage Lookalike

A startling Nicolas Cage lookalike

Weird Fact: This Nicolas Cage lookalike shows your looks are not unique.

This photo from c.1870 shows a man who looks suspiciously like Nicolas Cage – providing ample evidence that your looks are in no way unique.

This throwback is caused by our limited gene pool as a species; ultimately, we all come from a small group of individuals (see The Seven Daughters of Eve: The Science That Reveals Our Genetic Ancestry).

This picture – of what could even be one of Nicolas Cage’s direct ancestors – was up for sale for $1,000,000 on eBay.

The seller, who collects antique memorial photography (images of dead people), guarantees it to be a verifiable original of a man who lived in Bristol, Tennessee, during the American Cival War.
