Someone Photoshopped Nicolas Cage’s Face Onto Ross’s From ‘Friends,’ And It’s Deeply Unsettling

There’s a new face-swap image making the rounds on Reddit, and it’s oddly disturbing.

Someone swapped Nicolas Cage‘s face with that of David Schwimmer as Ross Geller in Friends, and some people are having a hard time seeing the difference.

The trend of photoshopping Nicolas Cage’s face onto things isn’t a new one but with the advent of the Deepfake programs like FakeApp and DeepFaceLab, these face-swaps have gotten a lot more realistic.

Ross from Friends with Nicolas Cages face on him just makes him look more like Ross from pics

People were astounded with how well the face-swap works.

“Oh.
My.
Gawwwwwd.”

“This is like discovering graphene.

Not exactly sure what the application could possibly be, but just knowing this is important.”

The image is actually a screenshot from a YouTube video by derpfakes:

Others are trying to name this new amalgam.

“Rosstopher Cage.”

Some are exploring the implications.

“Now, imagine every Nic Cage film, except it’s David Schwimmer in Nic Cage’s shoes.”

“It was actually Cage the whole time, he’s such a good actor, he can create other actor identities & use them to star on TV shows with ease.”

A group even worked together to make a hi-res side-by-side comparison of the actual Ross and his Deepfake counterpart.

“If only Nicholas Cage made a movie about switching faces with someone…”

Maybe Face/Off really is the reason people love ‘shopping Cage’s face on everything from E.T. to US currency.
