Austin Butler looks just like Elvis. Although he is not the most attractive boy to play Elvis, many people have said that Butler can imitate Elvis’ movements and voice better than anyone. He seems to have his gravity back as he is able to perform alongside Tom Hanks.
Butler took up vocal coaching even before the filming began. Interview with Hollywood Reporter: Butler confirms that he sings earlier in the movie.
“I set out to make my voice identical when I began the process. This creates fear. Butler explained that this set the fire ablaze.
The story is split into three parts: Elvis in his youth, where he takes most of his inspirations from black gospel; Elvis at work and his last days before his untimely demise. In order to sound closer to the music legend’s voice, Butler’s vocals are incorporated into Elvis’ recording.
Butler says, “I watched as many as I could, over and over,” and goes into detail about how much time he spent learning to imitate The King’s voice.
