This is truly as good as it gets. Brazilian police arrested a man named Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros, 41, for holding a fake ID along with other false documents. Apparently, finding the guy was easy: De Barros’ ID showed the signature “Joao Pedro dos Santos” alongside a picture not of de Barros, but of Jack Nicholson. Yes, that Jack Nicholson.
Why didn’t he get caught sooner? Haven’t Brazilians seen The Departed? Starting a fake company to commit bank fraud is already a terrible idea. But if you’re gonna go down in flames, you might as well do it in the most awesome way possible — by pretending to be a three-time Oscar winner.
