Matthew McConaughey Will be The Voice Behind Elvis Presley in ‘Agent Elvis’

Matthew McConaughey has lent his voice for the character of Elvis Presley in the animated series, ‘Agent Elvis’. The trailer for the series is out now, and it is set to premiere next month. 

“Elvis Presley trades in his jumpsuit for a jet pack when he is covertly inducted into a secret government spy program to battle the dark forces that threaten the country he loves – all while holding down his day job as the King of Rock and Roll,” reads the series logline.

‘Agent Elvis’ was co-created by Priscilla Presley, Presley’s widow and John Eddie. The show has Mike Arnold as the showrunner and the headwriter. 

“From the time Elvis was a young boy he always dreamed of being the superhero fighting crime and saving the world! Agent King lets him do just that,” Priscilla said about the show.

Austin Butler, who played Elvis Presley in the recent biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann, stated that he may have damaged his vocal cords while filming. He adopted a Tennessee accent for the movie, which has since stuck. “I’m getting rid of the accent, but I have probably damaged my vocal cords with all that singing,” Butler said. “One song took 40 takes.”
