Singer Sky Ferreira is set to make her big screen acting debut in upcoming movie Elvis & Nixon.

The film, featuring Kevin Spacey as former President Richard Nixon and Michael Shannon as Elvis Presley, will document the two icons' meeting in the White House in December, 1970, when The King was sworn in as an undercover Federal Agent at large.

Fargo star Colin Hanks has been cast as Nixon aide Egil Krogh, while Magic Mike's Alex Pettyfer will play Elvis' best pal, Jerry Schilling.

Ferreira, who has previously landed small acting roles in independent movie projects Putty Hill and The Green Inferno, will portray Schilling's love interest.

Jackass star Johnny Knoxville has also been added to the Elvis & Nixon cast as the head of the rocker's security team.

Liza Johnson is directing the film, which is currently in production in Atlanta, Georgia.
