Man walking around Dublin with Dublin bus ticket was not, in fact, Jack Nicholson

The man a number of Irish people mistook for Jack Nicholson yesterday was actually just a dead ringer for the Hollywood actor.

A number of Irish shoppers made the same mistake, posting pictures online with the man they thought was Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson.

He was spotted in the Jameson Distillery, Brogan's Dublin, on a Dublin Bus hop-on Hop-off tour and walking up O' Connell Street with a Dublin Bus ticket in hand.

The man in question was actually Norman Deesing, a professional Jack Nicholson impersonator.

No word yet on whether or not Deesing was hired to promote Dublin Bus or Dublin as part of the new Dublin tourism campaign - perhaps he really was just having a day out!

Anton Savage has been taking stories of missed identities on Today FM, with many callers sharing embarrassing stories of falling for lookalikes or - worse - running into someone famous without realising.
