Adam Lambert Wants To Play Elvis


Adam Lambert is already used to filling the shoes of a rock legend, fronting Queen in place of Freddie Mercury.  Now he wants to play another member of the rock'n'roll pantheon.

Lambert says he's interested in playing Elvis in the upcoming Presley biopic, directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker.

In a recent interview, Lambert said he's been compared to Elvis "quite a bit" and has performed The King's music on stage for a tribute concert.  He even claimed to have perfected Presley's signature lip sneer.
