Is that really a compliment?

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

    JRM spent his formative years growing up in my home town. Fair play to him! He lived with a protestant family, not that that would colour yer perceptions! 😉

    Ah, no. But you might know him better as the guy that shot Michael Collins!
