Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon Will Play Nixon and Elvis in Elvis & Nixon

Cary Elwes has written a movie about that time Elvis met Richard Nixon, and now he’s gotten Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey to star as two of the Top 10 Most Outstanding Men in America. Shannon will play Elvis and Spacey will play Nixon, and it’s hard to say which casting will provide for more scenery-chewing: Shannon glammed up and rambling about “Communist brainwashing techniques,” or Spacey giving a paranoid spin on his weaselly House of Cards performance. This movie is going to be a glorious mess, or it’ll win all the Oscars. Either way, we’re so excited, we’ve created this exclusive preview image. Pin it to your Pinterest!
