Does that mean that the title of this puzzle is the puzzle statement itself?
Or is "The title says everything" actually the puzzle statement?

Did Mickey expect a famous person but didn't get one? Was there another person in place of Mike?

Is Mike an actor? singer? politician? dancer? painter? sportsman?
Was Mickey supposed to interview Mike? Photograph him? Help him with his costume, hair etc?
Did Mickey think that Mike had done something? or did he just think that he would be meeting Mike, then found out that it wasn't Mike he was meeting after all? Did he speak to him for a while before realising his error?
Have they met each other prior to this?
Was Mickey justified in thinking that it was Mike? Has he been tricked?

Did Mike do anything specific? Did Mickey see a person he considered to be Mike? Does Mike know Mickey personally?

"Mickey found out that it wasn't Mike" could either mean that someone did something (e.g. crime) and indices pointed to Mike (?) or Mickey took s.o. else for Mike (?)

Is Mickey a fan of Mike?

Is Mike someone most people in the US would know? In the world? A real person? This is a fictive story. Mike is popular, but it is not really relevant how much.

Is Mike kidnapped? Held somewhere? Restrained?
Why was he impersonated? To make sure that no one would know of Mike's absence? Or to do something instead of Mike (e.g. give a concert)?

Was the impersonation meant to harm Mike? Not intentionally and not physically, but it is questionable whether at all. Mickey? No. Any other persons? Same as the first one.

*******************RECAP*******************

Mike is a celebrity, not relevant of which profession. Somebody impersonated him. Mike was not kidnapped, held somewhere, restrained, neither he knew about the impersonation. The impersonation is not intended to hurt Mike. Although Mickey and Mike never met, Mickey found out that it wasn't Mike.

So Mickey comes into a situation where he sees Mike. In the first moment he thinks it is Mike. Then somehow he finds out that it is someone else?

What I meant is: When I go to the shop around the corner and I meet another customer in the shop I don't care much about it. If the other customer is Brad Pitt I would surely tell my friends about it. The situation of being in the shop was special because of Brad Pitt

Where does the situation take place? Outside? Inside? Does the impersonator pretend he was Mike in a job-situation? Or Mike in his free time?

OK, I try to construct a situation, you can tell me if I am close or far away?
Any street in any town. People pass by, coming home from work or doing some shopping.
But... there is one person, different to the others... is it? Yes! It is famous Mike! More and more people stop to look at him.
Do some people talk to "Mike"?

But then Mickey appears. He says: "That can't be Mike because..."

Anything close in those statements?

But... there is one person, different to the others... is it? Yes! It is famous Mike! More and more people stop to look at him. Precisely.
Do some people talk to "Mike"? Yes.

But then Mickey appears. He says: "That can't be Mike because..." He doesn't say it loudly, the rest is correct.

Anything close in those statements? Absolutely.

You are right, I was translating too directly from german.

Was it something about the impersonators voice? looks? what he said? what he did? something about the relationship between Mike an Mickey? Mike and someone else?

I maybe misunderstood your previous question. If by "did" you meant some moves etc. he did with his arm, then the answer is no.

Yes, I meant moves etc.
So he did something with his arms and in that action the arms are objects, no subjects?
Like putting sun-lotion on your arms?

The impersonator tries to look like Mike. He looks at a picture of Mike. Then he stands in front of a mirror to check if he looks like Mike. On the picture he sees the plaster on the on the left side (Mike's right arm). When the impersonator gets a plaster on his own left side, it is the left arm. Is that correct?

Or did the impersonator see a picture that was turned around?

Is it relevant why only Mickey could tell it wasn't Mike? He simply paid more attention to the picture than the impersonator (and everybody else who saw it). Was he the only one who saw the picture? No.
What is left to find out? Almost obvious, but isn't said yet — how Mickey found out that the picture was turned.

Well, the number-plate was turned. So instead of being read from left to right it was turned around.

**********************SPOILER**********************

This morning, while reading the newspaper, Mickey noticed the news about Mike's accident. He was not a fan of Mike, but noticed something strange on the picture: numbers on the license plate of a nearby car were printed like in the mirror. "Oh, well, the picture is turned, it happens sometimes in a newspaper," thought Mickey.

Later that day, Mickey went in a walk, and noticed a crowd of people pushing each other in order to get an autograph of somebody who looked exactly like Mike. "Hmm, wait a second! This guy has a plaster on the left arm, just like on the turned picture. Well, that is probably somebody who didn't notice the licence plate and is using his similarity with Mike to feed his ego." — thought Mickey, and continued his own way.

Thanks to everybody who participated, and congratulations to Cookie for solving it!
