Harry Styles says he auditioned to play Elvis in new biopic

Harry Styles has revealed that he auditioned to play Elvis in Baz Luhrmann’s new biopic.Styles shared the news during Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show on Wednesday (May 18), calling Elvis Presley’s music “incredibly sacred”.The film, which is set for release on June 24, delves into the King of Rock and Roll’s relationship with his manager Colonel Tom Parker (played by Tom Hanks) spanning over 20 years, from the rock and roll icon’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America.“Elvis was probably the first person I knew besides my family when I was a kid,” the singer said. “For that reason, there was something incredibly sacred surrounding him, so I thought I should try to get the part.”Styles continued: “I was very intrigued by it… I feel like if a director feels like I’m not the best person for the role then it’s better for them and it’s better for me,” he said.
