The last time Roy was portrayed in film was in the "Walk The Line" movie. Jonathan Rice did a nice job, but I don't think he looked or really sounded like him.

I think the producers of the upcoming Elvis movie have the right idea, making it an eight (or ten) part TV movie. I don't know if the Orbison biography will eventually end up in theaters or on cable TV.

Here's what his son had to say:

"My dads story is a fantastic journey. He was so inspiring as a person because, after everything he had been through, good and bad, he still had a positive outlook on life, and was kind and wonderful. The movie will mirror a Roy Orbison song: having triumph and tragedy, sometimes losing the girl and sometimes getting the girl, and ending on a high note. Our fathers life story has an undeniably cinematic quality to it."
