Austin Butler played Elvis in the Biopic.

They accepted open cast calls online and even considered Elvis impersonators.

Baz Luhrmann did a worldwide search for the role of Elvis.

Butler beat out actors like Harry Styles, Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort for the Elvis role.

The team wasn’t initially sure of him because he wasn’t as known as the rest.

Butler sent in a recording of himself performing “Unchained Melody.”

Denise Chamian said his performance blew her away.

Chamian met Butler when he auditioned for “The Maze Runner.”

Butler auditioned for “Top Gun: Maverick” but didn’t get the role because he was too young.
