    He was okay, better than most I have seen but much too languid in his movements and no soul in his voice.

    He was Ok, but i am not so big fan of impressionator of Elvis, i think that it is a little stupid to try to be Elvis himself, they can never do it.....but that is my opinion

    He has a lot of physical similarities and his voice isn't bad at all.

    I think I've just figured something out {I'm kinda slow }

    No one can ever play Elvis......because Elvis wasn't playing.
    He picked the songs he sang because he identified with them. His life was experiencing the things his songs said to us. It is we that identify with him. As Diane has pointed out.....the "soul" is missing from all impersonators.
    Nothing religious inferred; just living the words to the songs he sang.

    Life lesson: Just be yourself; your essense will shine through.

    What can I say?? It's the "older woman" thing as Jess has said.
    It took me long enough to figure it out.

    My grandson watches "I Walk The Line" over & over . I wondered why no one {IMO} has ever been able to "play" Elvis in a movie .
    Then the moment struck. Because Elvis never "played" Elvis. He was just being himself ; insecurities & all......
    What an impossible task for anyone to take on.....telling his story in film.

    Thanks for your replys. I enjoyed reading them. I agree with all of you. I don't care for impressionators at all. All of them are parody of themselves and they look silly.
    It is just interesting to watch how much time, money and rehearse someone spend to act and look like other person.
    The fact is that Elvis was born with his talent and nobody can't replace that.
