Reincarnation has scored another point thanks to these creepy images of celebrities and their doppelgängers — who all happen to have died hundreds of years ago.

Maybe there are only so many kinds of face to go around, since there are currently seven billion of them on the planet. Or maybe Nicolas Cage is an ancient vampiric beast that is cursed to live forever on the blood of innocents. Have a look at these celebrity look alike images below and see which theory seems more reasonable to you!

Rupert Grint And Sir David Wilkie

I told you not to mess with that time-turner, Ron!

Orlando Bloom And Nicolae Grigorescu

I knew Orlando's haircut looked a bit outdated, but this is just ridiculous!

Sylvester Stallone And Pope Gregory IX

Holy smoke!

Keanu Reeves And Paul Mounet

Keanu Reeve's and Paul Mounet share a face and a profession, but Mounet just happened to be a medical doctor as well as an actor. Sorry Reeves, you were good in The Matrix and all, but you've been totally one-upped!

Talk about blasted from the past...

Bruce Willis And General Douglas MacArthur

Bruce Willis is no stranger to warring with directors and co-stars, so General Douglas MacArthur is a somewhat appropriate doppelgänger.



Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rose Wilder Lane

With her quirky fashion sense, I wouldn't even put it past Maggie Gyllenhaal to wear that hat. True soul sistas!



Justin Timberlake And An Unknown Historical Criminal

When Justin Timberlake was singing about "bringing sexy back," I had no idea he meant from hundreds of years ago.





Shia LaBeouf And Young Albert Einstein

I think we all know who made the most intelligent decisions in life. SPOILERS: It's probably not the one who wore a paper bag on his head.







Alec Baldwin And Millard Fillmore

From President of the United States to President of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming in 30 Rock. Reincarnation has been a rough ride for Millard Fillmore.

Ellen DeGeneres And Henry David Thoreau

I'm so sorry for bringing this unfortunate resemblance to light, my beloved Ellen!

Nicholas Cage And A Civil War-Era Man

The man who discovered this image was so convinced Nick Cage was a stake dodging bloodsucker that he tried to sell the image for a million bucks on eBay.

His reasoning? I'll let the man himself do the talking here;

Personally, I believe it's him and that he is some sort of walking undead/vampire, et cetera, who quickens/reinvents himself every 75 years or so.

You learn something new every day!

Johnny Depp And A Redditor's Great Grandfather

Redditor mwjstone14 was the master of under-exaggeration when they wrote their great grandfather "looks like" Johnny Depp!

Which celebrity look alike do you think looks the most accurate?
