Elvis Presley pictured singing in what most fans call his comeback, 1978's Grease. In the movie, he appears as Frenchy's guardian "Teen Angel" who gives her a reality check on the situation she was in, just like he gave himself back in 1976.

He had been asked to star with Barbara Streisand in A Star Is Born, he had expressed interest in joining the film, but his manager at the time Colonel Tom Parker, asked for a substantial amount of money and top billing for him, which they obviously passed on. This greatly angered Elvis, as his manager had just made him pass on what could've been a great comeback movie for him.

One day he marched into the Colonel's office with a team of lawyers and told him he was fired, the Colonel obviously protested, and threatened to take legal action against him, which Elvis was already ready for. So he brought his status as an illegal immigrant up, which he can use against him. He stepped down, and was fired.

He later killed himself in a dingy trailer outside of Las Vegas in 1979, leaving millions owed in gambling debts.

Elvis however, had just gotten the comeback he wanted, albiet not what he expected. Throughout the last couple of years he had been losing weight, working on his drug addictions, and really just working on himself. But in 1978, he had been asked by Robert Stigward to make a cameo in a movie that he was working on... Grease. This was just the movie for him, and not so long later, he had filmed the scene, recorded the song, and now was waiting for the release.

When it was released, it was a triumph for him, introducing him to a new generation of fans. He had to somehow make this success worth something, so he kept on working, cameoing in another movie the Blues Brothers, where he played a pentecostal preacher, who was had a singing duel with other preacher just across the street, played by James Brown. He was also amused to see that his song Jailhouse Rock was used in the ending of the film.

During 1980, Queen frontman Freddie Mercury gifted him a song, a song which would become his most successful single in years.

Love this, but who is playing the eponymous character? And who directs?
 
This photo has a strange but interesting story.

Barney_Jurassic_Park.jpg

In Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster film Jurassic Park, scientists cloned seven famous types dinosaurs for an amusement park, but it all went wrong. The seven dinosaurs in the movie were:
  • T-rex
  • Velociraptor
  • Brachiosaurus
  • Triceratops
  • Dilophosaurus
  • Parasaurolophus
  • Gallimimus
However, there was an eighth dinosaur, but it was removed from the movie for being very dangerous and scary. It was Barney. It is unknown why he was suppose to be in the movie (possibly being a parody of the infamous purple colored dinosaur or possibly in a dream sequence), but he was removed. Only three known copies of the original film are known to exist: one with Steven Spielberg himself, another one in the hands of a collector and the third is owned by an anonymous person in Montana. He was able to take a picture of one frame of the film, showing Barney eating the lawyer off the toilet (which was replaced with the T-rex in the final cut).

I assume you're asking who played Orpheus... I dunno, haven't decided yet, but I'm thinking a singer/guitarist from that period of time, maybe a member of a band...

As for who directs, Robert Wise (Sound of Music, West Side Story).

And for the unasked question of how is this possible... Alien Space Bats are fans of musicals.
