    Be hard pressed to find anyone who looks LESS like Elvis, looks good all the same

    First Superman vs Batman, now this. Hollywood has run out of ideas.

      And the one thing he wasn’t at that stage was fugly – he was stunningly gorgeous in ’68

    Yikes – seriously over-acted King there. Still, it tickles, so I’ll be watching it.

    Don’t think Spacey is a good choice for the role.

    Seeing him in that role inevitably forces us to think of Underwood. Underwood & Nixon have some similarities but are actually very different characters.
