Jack Mord shared his theory while trying to sell an old photo of a US Confederate prisoner, who bears quite a resemblance to Cage. Mord says the man in the picture is Lieutenant G.B. Smith, captured in 1864 - he also says he believes Lt Smith IS Nicolas Cage!
"I believe he’s some sort of walking undead, who reinvents himself once every 75 years or so," says Mord. "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."
If that's so, then next time he comes back, can he learn not to mumble please? "Put... da bunny... back... in da box."
Jack only wanted US$1 million for the photo - it was later removed from eBay. Ah, well, Jack, back to smoking burlap...but hark!
Was that Duelling Banjos I heard? Or just PhotoShop loading up?
