Elvis Week 2011 Schedule
Saturday, April 9, 2011
So actor Tom Berenger, best known for his role in the 1986 Oliver Stone film, Platoon (which also starred Charlie Sheen), and most recently, Inception (starring Leonardo DiCarpio) attended the Memphis Film Festival this weekend. And a few weeks ago, he said this to a reporter who asked if he would visit Graceland while attending the Memphis Film Festival,
"I'll be honest with you, there's two things I'm not interested in that everybody else was interested in," said Berenger, 61. "One was Elvis, and the other was the Beatles." Berenger says he loves jazz and blues, but he's more interested in Italian opera and Portuguese fado music.
And this was apparent today when the actor stopped in the Sirius XM studio at Graceland today to chat with George Klein. The actor was at Graceland and had yet to tour the mansion. When GK asked the actor what his favorite Elvis song was, the actor slipped, stumbled and fell. He was at a lost of words. Geez, I mean....Hound Dog, That's All Right, Teddy Bear....no, Tom? Really? No, Really!?
I hope his Graceland tour changed his opinion of Elvis Presley.
