Chinese Man To Pay To Look Like Shakespeare

MARY LOUISE KELLY, host:

Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.

According to China National Radio, he's planning to shell out more than $150,000 for plastic surgery to transform himself into Shakespeare's spitting image. The surgeon says it shouldn't be too complicated because Zhang already has a sharp nose and deep eyes, kind of like what we think Shakespeare looked like.
