John Travolta and Nicolas Cage Vampires? Time Travel Companions?
Posted 09.30.11 by Chris
When people hear the names Nicolas Cage and John Travolta, the movie Face/Off probably comes to mind. But after looking at two 19th-century photos, people might think there's more than meets the eye when it comes to Cage and Travolta.
Last week, we reported on a Civil War-era photo that showed a man that uncannily resembles Cage. Now, we have a 19th-century photo that shows a man who is a spitting image of Travolta.
What could explain this bizarre coincidence? Is it possible that two of our most treasured actors
of the '90s have some supernatural secret? Are they time travelers? Perhaps vampires?
Before the eBay listing of the Travolta picture was pulled, the buyer offered this explanation (the seller was asking for $50,000 for the photo):
For those of you who don't know, John Travolta is a Scientologist and many Scientologists believe in a type of reincarnation. Of course, time travel can't be ruled out as well... The thing that I always found striking about this photograph and I'm sure that you will too is the amazing identical eyes, hairline and most importantly John's very unique trademark chin.
As much as we here at Reelz wanted to believe that Travolta and Cage were time travelers or the undead, we knew better.
Well, THR interviewed the owner of the Travolta photo and it turns out it's just a big coincidence.
The owner said she and a fellow historical photo collector came across the two photos by chance.
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. 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.
Well, it was fun while it lasted.
