A first photograph of Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey portraying Elvis Presley and Richard Nixon, respectively, in the new film Elvis & Nixon.

The new film, a comedy from Liza Johnson, documents the meeting between the rock singer and sitting president in 1970. The meeting spawned this famous photo of the two men:

Now The Hollywood Reporter has released the first look of Shannon and Spacey as the two men in the film, and the resemblance looks solid:

The bizarre true story happened in December of 1970, when Elvis appeared at the White House and asked to be sworn in as a Federal agent. According to reports, the singer felt being sworn in as an agent would allow him to “legally enter any country both wearing guns and carrying any drugs he wished.”

Here is the official synopsis of the film:

“Two men at the height of their powers, conscious they could not stay on top forever, both ripped with fear of the inevitable, sharing one famous private moment in the Oval office. ELVIS & NIXON recounts the morning of December 21st 1970, when the King of Rock’ n Roll (Michael Shannon) showed up on the White House lawn to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey). He had a very urgent request: to be sworn in as an undercover Federal Agent at large. This intimate moment in the Oval office between two men at the height of their powers has never been told.”

Aside from Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey, Elvis & Nixon stars Colin Hanks, Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Knoxville, and Tracy Letts.

Michael Shannon has an immediate resemblance to Elvis in 1970, but Kevin Spacey may seem like a long shot to accurately depict Richard Nixon. However, this first photo from Elvis & Nixon indicates that the makeup has made Spacey’s look passable. The film will be released in 2015, though no date has been set at this time.
