It seems the secret to celeb success may be immortality. With all the buzz about Nicolas Cage telling David Letterman that he is pretty sure he isn’t a vampire, we couldn’t help but wonder if there were more undead celebs out there. While they are few and far between (or simply don’t come out during the day), we did find a few. Take a peek at these leading men who look eerily similar to those who fought for the blue and grey.
Moustache Blows Matthew McConaughey’s Undercover Immortality
Blame it on the moustache! No one may have ever identified this buff beachcomber as a possible member of the undead if Matthew hadn’t resurrected this droopy moustache style. From the bright eyes to the long nose to the wavy locks, the similarities between the former sexiest man alive and this Confederate soldier are uncanny. If someone had been paying closer attention, the lid might have been blown off Matthew’s potential immortality when he used his personal motto of “Just Keep Livin’,” as the name of his foundation, j.k.livin, which is “dedicated to helping teenage kids lead active lives and make healthy choices so they can become great men and women,” according to the foundation’s website. While Matthew credits the motto to a line from “Dazed and Confused” I think it’s more likely that the true inspiration behind it is that, if this pic is anything to go on, that’s just what he’s been doing for more than a century.
Paul Newman May Not Be Gone After All
Civil War doppelganger or proof that Paul Newman was really a vampire? After catching a glimpse of this pic, I had to wonder if it was a vampire hunter that finally brought down one of Hollywood’s biggest and brightest. Paul Newman, whose blue eyes melted the hearts of women everywhere for nearly six decades, was more than just an actor – he was also known for his line of Newman’s Own foodstuffs, his humanitarian efforts and his need for speed. Maybe it was the knowledge that he would survive any kind of fiery crash the track could throw his way that made the “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” actor so fearless behind the wheel of a race car, leading to several national championships as a driver in Sports Car Club of America road racing. Who knows, maybe Newman escaped that vampire hunter and is just laying low for a while to keep his immortal status on the down-low.
Hello Sailor! Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Civil War Serviceman?
I don’t think it’s a case of inception, but something freaky is going on with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The actor bears a strong resemblance to this Union sailor from the Civil War. I always thought Joseph would be dashing in a sailor’s uniform, but I really expected it to be one from this century. Perhaps this cutie-pie is just one more member of the teeming Hollywood undead. He did start his career playing an alien on “3rd Rock From the Sun,” so maybe the reason he was so successful at portraying an unearthly being is that he’s been walking the earth for centuries in a supernatural state that has preserved his good looks and dapper charm for our enjoyment.
Can you think of any others we have missed?
