    Some of those movies are news to me, but of the ones I know of...
    Out of three worst Elvis actors, I can't decide which makes me cringe more:

    • Dohn Johnson - Elvis And The Beauty Queen
      Rob Youngblood - Elvis And The Colonel
      David Keith - Heartbreak Hotel


    Then there are the favourite ones, I have said this many times before, but there was only ever one actor who seemed to capture the 'Elvis thing' for me,
    he is at the top of the list, the rest were in my opinion, just ok...

    • Kurt Russel - Elvis the Movie
      Michael St Gerard - Good Rockin' Tonight (purely for the look)
      Johnny Hara - This is Elvis (the late Elvis at 42)


    The rest were bearable, but missable, such as Dale Midkiff from 'Elvis and Me'
    or Jonathon Rhys Meyers from 'Elvis, The Early Years'.

    Well, that's my opinion.

    I found the Elvis at 18 or whatever it was in "This is elvis" to be rediculous. I thought Don Johnson was horrible and I even kinda liked him in some other things. Jonathon Rhys Meyers was absolutly horrendous as an actor, and even more so as a person after the fact if even half of what was attributed to him was correct.

    Completely agree with you JDD, the early Elvis in 'This Is Elvis' was a joke, especially when he sang, but the older Elvis that we see at the beginning of the movie, was quite believable (maybe because we only see the back of him) lol.
    Don Johnson was like watching any old fool dress up in a jumpsuit and think they are Elvis.
    What did you think of Michael St Gerard? I thought he was the best actor ever to play Elvis based on looks alone, but Kurt Russel beat him on the character and feel of Elvis

    Terry, I completly agreed with you on Kurt Russell and Michael St Gerard . I don't even like Kurt Russell and I still thought he played the part respectful and I enjoyed him in the role.
