Brevard County, FL- A man is claiming that he was the inspiration for one of the most famous movie roles of all time.
Stephen Cummings claims that the movie Titanic stole HIS life story.
Cummings says the Jack Dawson character--played by Leonardo DiCaprio--was based on events that happened in his own life, and that director James Cameron learned about him through "word of mouth."
Cummings also says the depiction of the Titanic sinking wasn't based on history, but on stories he told friends about two of his relatives who were aboard the actual ship.
Cummings is seeking $300 MILLION plus 1% of the film's royalties, which is around an extra $25 million. [TMZ]
