King Tut was David Schwimer in a past life

My favourite topics in history class back in secondary school were the Egyptians and the Roman empire so I found the following story pretty cool:

Via BBC News: The face of Egypt's most famous ancient ruler, King Tutankhamun, has been put on public display for the first time.

Archaeologists took the mummy from its stone sarcophagus and placed it in a climate-controlled case inside his tomb in Luxor's Valley of the Kings.

The event comes 85 years to the day after the pharaoh's tomb was discovered by British explorer Howard Carter.

Until now, only about 50 living people have seen the face of the boy king, who died more than 3,000 years ago.

As experts lifted Tutankhamun from his coffin they briefly set aside the white linen covering his remains, revealing a shrivelled black face and body.

Read the rest of the story here on BBC News.

For a laugh, I decided to find out who is as ugly as King Tut in the celebrity world. The results are fascinating. Via that silly MyHeritage site that you see on Bebo, see the ancient Egyptian King morph into Lucy Liu:
