In an interview with The Times Online, Irish actor Jonathan Rhys-Meyers takes time out to briefly discuss his title role in the upcoming CBS miniseries, Elvis. "I can't ask Elvis how he did Elvis, I can only perceive how Elvis became Elvis. I'm trying to do my interpretation of how Elvis is. The more raw I can make it the better it'll be," Rhys-Meyers explained. "I'm playing Elvis – from Cork. Can you imagine? They're paying me a fortune. (Expletive), imagine if I turned them down," he mused. Elvis begins filming this week in New Orleans. It will air in May.
