A Brazilian has been arrested after attempting to use a fake ID bearing the image of Jack Nicholson.

Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros tried to open up a bank account in the city of Recife before civil police were called to the scene.

Not only did the 41-year-old look nothing like the 74-year-old in the photo, but officials instantly spotted the Oscar-winning actor.

Police had been following Barros's actions for several months over acts of fraud, according to Chief Erivaldo Guerra.

Barros was found to be holding six different IDs, cheque books and credit cards after he was arrested. He was later charged with using false documents and falsifying a public document.

He is currently being held in jail while awaiting a court date.
