Harry Styles Too Iconic To Play Elvis

Harry Styles is too iconic in his own right to play The King of Rock and Roll.

Baz Luhrman recently told Australian radio hosts Fitzy and Wippa that the One Direction alum auditioned for Elvis alongside Austin Butler and Miles Teller.

The filmmaker said, “Harry is a really talented actor. I would work on something with him. The real issue with Harry is, he’s Harry Styles. He’s already an icon.”

The role ultimately went to Butler “because he was almost born to play it.”
