Double vision: Bowie in The Prestige and comic Ricky Gervais
And something must have rubbed off because in his latest film David Bowie bears an amazing resemblance to Ricky Gervais.
In fact, the characters couldn?t be more different as the 59-year-old pop star in his takes on his first high-profile film role for nearly a decade.
The Prestige also stars Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Scarlett Johansson, Andy Serkis and Michael Caine.
The film centres around two magicians in turn-of-the-century London whose battle over trade secrets turns them into killers.
Bowie plays inventor and electrical wizard Nikola Tesla, who is approached by one of the two competing magicians for help in pulling off the ultimate magic trick.
