Austin Butler Singing in “Elvis” Is It Real? Everything We Know About His Role-Readiness Preparation

It’s no secret that some fans questioned Austin Butler’s ability to portray the late Elvis Presley in the 2022 movie Elvis by Baz Luhrmann. Several other Hollywood hunks, including Miles Teller and Harry Styles, showed up for the audition.

However, it’s obvious Butler was the right choice for the role once you see the 30-year-old former Nickelodeon star swinging his hips, donning a shiny black bouffant, and expertly nailing the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s accent. The Carrie Diaries actor is actually singing in the biopic, in addition to his charm and good looks.

In a June interview with Entertainment Weekly, Butler said, “Music has always been a part of my life, but always a very private thing.” “It was simply my personal therapy. I was aware that I would have to give my all when it came to the singing portion of the role.

Give everything he did as well! To ensure that the Switched at Birth actor sounded exactly like the “Can’t Help Falling in Love” crooner, production hired voice coaches from all over the world, including New York and Los Angeles. As Butler recalled to Entertainment Weekly, “I sang every day [while getting ready and filming] and would do my singing exercises first thing in the morning.”

It truly resembles a muscle. As I was filming, I noticed that notes I had previously struggled to hit were now suddenly within my reach. “I was expanding my horizons. However, you must learn vocal tics in addition to singing. That might be a little challenging.

Elvis, which also stars Tom Hanks, Olivia DeJonge, and Dacre Montgomery, features Butler singing all of the early music; however, in the second half of the movie, his voice is mixed with that of the real-life Elvis.

Butler was clearly bоrn tо play Elvis, as his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens already knew, based оn the early praise the actоr has received. Butler revealed in an April interview with Vоgue that Hudgens, 33, had been the оne tо initially persuade him tо pursue the part: “Yоu need tо play Elvis,” she had said after having the “epiphany.”

Butler has since mоved оn with mоdel Kaia Gerber.
