Face/Off a reality!

I'll admit I thought this was pretty incredible when I read it: Apparently some French (they might actually be good for somthing) surgeons were watching the John Woo film Face/Off starring John Travolta and Nicholas Cage the other night and one said to the other "Hey mon ami we shurd tryy do dis for ray-al wee?"

And they did. Amazingly they perfomed the worlds first Face Transplant. One of the patients was dead before they started though. They couldn't be expected to be as good as the surgeons in Face/Off (they are only French after all), read about it here.

I can see this being marketed soon enough however and soon we'll be able to buy the face of our celebrity heroes. Me: I've got dibs on Connery!

Indeed it isn't. With a face like that, he should be more than a mere Colonel!

I know it's not right Vaughan,Connery has a different complexion and I've not been using digital image enhancement applications since pre-production on Valour.

@ Sith Apologist: True, perhaps I'll get Connery's visage when I get my general's star.
