Jack White Is the King

by (@katespencer)

Jack White is set to play Elvis in a new music-biopic spoof film called Walk Hard, the story of a singer (John C. Reilly) who overcomes the odds to become a legend. The film is the brainchild of Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40 Year Old Virgin), so it’ll be funnier than Jack’s last two times out at the box office — Cold Mountain and Coffee & Cigarettes, two movies that aren’t very funny at all. He told Pitchfork that John C. Reilly called him up personally to ask him to be in the movie, which makes us wonder how John C. Reilly got Jack’s phone number, but whatever. In other White Stripes news, Stereogum found this great video of Jack and Meg on Pancake Mountain, a show where a goat interviews musicians. Enjoy. Goats make the best journalists.
