Kevin Spacey Trades Frank Underwood's Conniving Ways For Richard Nixon's In This 'Elvis & Nixon' Clip

Spacey stars opposite Michael Shannon, who plays Elvis Presley.

Richard Nixon wasn't particularly keen to host non-English-speaking officials at the White House. Ditto Elvis Presley, according to a scene from the new movie "Elvis & Nixon," which depicts the singer's famous 1970 meeting with the president. A counterculture-averse Presley (Michael Shannon) wanted Nixon (Kevin Spacey) to appoint him as an undercover agent in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. As shown in this scene -- exclusive to The Huffington Post and its parent company AOL -- Nixon didn't want to take the meeting in the first place.

"Elvis & Nixon" premieres next week at the Tribeca Film Festival before opening in theaters on April 22. Directed by Liza Johnson ("Hateship, Loveship"), the movie also stars Alex Pettyfer, Evan Peters, Colin Hanks, Tate Donovan, Sky Ferreira and Tracy Letts. Watch the clip below.
