Add Eric Bana to the long list of those who would be the King.
While there was only one Elvis Presley, a whole cottage industry revolves around impersonating the star. And it's not just made up of the Las Vegas street impersonators, either; plenty of TV shows and films have depictions of the late rocker. Now, Bana, best known for his work in films such as "Hulk" and "Munich," will take on Presley's late career rhinestones in actor Cary Elwes directorial debut.
Variety reports that Bana will play Elvis in "Elvis & Nixon," which will be based on the bizarre-but-true story of the time Presley met with President Nixon in hopes of becoming a Federal Agent-at-Large in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. As for Nixon, the former President will be played by Danny Huston.
Bana joins a long line of stars who have played Elvis. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers took on »

It should always be counted a massive tragedy that Michael J Fox was robbed of the opportunity to make more films by his health, because he made some of the best family films of his generation, in the Back to the Future Trilogy, as well as other classics like Teen Wolf, The Secret of My Suce$s and Doc Hollywood. Okay, so not everything he touched was gold, but the actor who rescued Marty McFly from the evils of being ginger and unfunny (from Eric Stoltz of course) has such an easy charisma that even now when he appears in cameos and brief guest runs on TV (where his career trajectory has found comfort since 1996 and Spin City) it’s hard not to love him.
