Cork-born actor, Jonathan Rhys-Myers is to play Elvis in a biopic for CBS in the US. The (short) piece on the UTV website begins in a standard way – The actor was cast not only for his talent but also for his startling physical similarity to the late rock `n` roll star[my emphasis].. unfortunately it ends with – The man known as “The King” was obese and bloated after later years filled with overeating and prescription drug abuse... Call your agent, Jonathan! Heh heh heh

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
