Kevin Spacey’s ‘Elvis & Nixon’ Movie Open Casting Call

Project Casting

Elvis & Nixon starring Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon is now holding an open casting call in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Historical drama Elvis & Nixon has set two-time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey to play President Richard Nixon opposite Oscar nominee Michael Shannon as rock ‘n’ roller Elvis Presley as the reconfigured project hits AFM this week.

Written by actor Cary Elwes with Hanala and Joey Sagal, Elvis & Nixon centers on the historic 1970 meeting between King and the president that famously yielded one of the more curious White House photo ops in pop culture history.
