Harry Styles opens up about losing biopic role – ‘It’s better this way’ | movies | entertainment

Former One Direction star Harry Styles recently attended O2 Academy Brixton in London where he played songs from his new album Harry’s House. But in between writing and recording new tracks for his budding career, he was working hard to become a movie star.

The 28-year-old has two big dramas coming out this year, but he’s also been almost a part of the upcoming biography of the biggest rock star of all time.

Harry has now revealed that he auditioned for the role of Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming movie, Elvis. The movie is the latest biopic of the king of rock and roll, but this time it has a new angle. Instead of focusing only on the King, Paz put the camera on Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

Harry revealed in a recent interview that he was “fascinated” by the film, and wanted to do the king justice on the big screen. “Elvis was probably the first person I knew besides my family when I was a kid,” he said.

Harry said there was something “incredibly sacred” about the king and his legacy. “So,” he admitted. “I thought I should try to get the part.”

The film’s cast looked at several good-looking young Hollywood stars, including Miles Teller of Top Gun Maverick fame. They have also reportedly looked at former Marvel star Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Ansel Elgort, the protagonist of Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story.

But, as Harry revealed, Buzz decided to go in a different direction.

The first trailer for the trilogy was released recently and showed Harry getting hot and heavy with screen lover Florence Pugh (of Black Widow fame).

After that, he will be starring in the movie My Police. Based on the book of the same name, Harry plays a police officer who becomes romantically involved with a man while still married to another woman.

On Elvis, Baz finally cast American actor Austin Butler in the role – and he couldn’t be happier about it. Austin has since spoken out about his desire to “explore the humanity” of the legendary singer.

Austin revealed, “He’s such an icon. He held onto the stature of a superhuman. To get to explore that and see what it was like, and find the human inside that icon, was really so much fun I could do for the rest of my life.”

He also had a lot of praise for Baz, the film’s director, and other visuals such as Moulin Rouge, The Great Gatsby, and Romeo + Juliet.

“That plus working with one of the greatest directors of all time is just the fun of my life,” he said.
