Austin Butler

Austin Butler

Elvis Presley is still alive, hiding in the 31-year-old actor who brought him to the big screen in the Baz Luhrmann movie about the legendary singer’s life.

Butler’s inability to shed the deep voice he took on to play the King started as a charming awards season bit and has since become tedious cause for concern, but perhaps the real reason he remains hoarse two years after filming wrapped is because he keeps being forced to talk about it.
