There’s often a point in an actor’s career when a career-defining role arrives. Sometimes the role can bleed into their daily lives, like the deeper nature of their performance. While it remains to be seen if Elvis Presley turns out to be the role that catapults Austin Butler to stardom (although it seems increasingly likely that it will), the actor has confirmed that the role has had a huge effect on him. According ScreenRantAustin Butler says he can’t help but sound like Elvis Presley.

Austin Butler stars in upcoming Baz Luhrmann biopic Elvis and ScreenRant cites an interview with Austin Butler with HEYwhere the actor explained how he struggled to shake Elvis’ infamous voice, despite filming the Elvis biopic ending some time ago. Here’s what Butler had to say; “At this point, I keep asking people, ‘Is that my voice?’ ‘Cause it feels like my real…it’s one of those things where certain things trigger and other times it’s also, I don’t know When you live with something for two years, and you don’t don’t do anything else, I think you can’t help it, it becomes a fiber of your being.

It’s no surprise that Austin Butler struggles to separate the sound of Elvis Presley from his own voice. Fans who have watched the trailer (see below) for the film, which hits theaters later this month, will have already witnessed the actor’s remarkable transformation. Butler’s overall portrayal of Elvis has already been noted by critics. The press has already had access to Bar Luhrmann’s film and the verdict is largely positive. Elvis has a rotten tomatoes score of 79% and Austin Butler’s performance is widely believed to be one of the shining lights of the project.

Austin Butler’s performance and the way Elvis embodied his character on a day-to-day basis could also be reminiscent of the film’s audition process. Butler, whose previous credits include the likes of Once upon a time in Hollywood beat Harry Styles in the coveted role of Elvis. Harry Styles apparently lost the role as director Baz Luhrmann said he was already an icon, but Butler might have won the role for some tragic reason. Austin Butler and Elvis Presley both lost their mothers in their early twenties, and Butler used that connection in the audition process, singing a song for his late mother, a move that likely sealed the deal.

by Baz Luhrmann Elvis sees the pioneering and life-changing rock star’s career unfold in the 1950s under the watchful guise of Presley’s sinister and intrusive manager, Colonel Tom Parker, played by multiple Oscar winner Tom Hanks. Thanks to the pandemic, the film has endured a long and delayed shooting schedule and will finally see the light of day in theaters on June 24, allowing audiences to see not just what Butler can bring to the lead role, but how the cinematic style eccentric by Baz Luhrmann (developed in the style of red Mill and Gatsby the magnificent) translates to The Legacy of Elvis. These delays may also have contributed to Austin Butler not being able to get rid of Elvis Presley’s voice. However, Butler won’t have long to change his way of announcing, given that he’s landed a role in a major film franchise, Austin Butler has joined the cast of Dennis Villeneuve. Dune: part two.
