1. Is Brad Pitt A Vampire, Too?

    So by now, you’ve all heard this crazy story about a Civil War era photo featuring a man who looks eerily similar to actor Nicolas Cage. The owner of the photo seems to think Cage is a vampire who has walked the Earth for all eternity … or some such insanity. Anyway, we flipped through our Digital Gallery of 700,000 images, and found this 1857 photo from our Manuscripts and Archives Division that includes a prisoner who we think bears some resemblance to Brad Pitt (or maybe Mark Wahlberg). It’s not QUITE as close as the Cage image, but c’mon - it’s not bad. We also found images that look similar to Matt Damon and Gerard Butler. Let the conspiracy theories begin.

    What’s with the obsession of people being vampires? I blame “Twilight” & “True Blood” for all of this.
