Quick Note: Actors, Vampires and Auctions

February 11, 2012

Today’s Note discusses a brief blog post about a civil war era photograph that strongly resembles actor Nicolas Cage. Someone discovered the photograph and tried to sell it on ebay as evidence that Cage is a vampire. In an interview with David Letterman, Cage predictably denied being vampire. Got all that?

The post which appears on the Today section of MSNBC is written by Ree Hines. It is amusing and at least slightly interesting. A video clip of the interview is embedded in the story, and Cage always makes for a witty spot

“I don’t drink blood, and the last time I looked in the mirror, I had a reflection,” Cage insisted. “So I’m not going with the vampire theory. I’m not going to do it.”

[the italics are added by me]

It is worth a (very) quick look, especially if you’re not familiar with the story. Ree Hines can be followed on Twitter at @ReeHines.
