Harry Styles Was Almost Cast In This Biopic And We’re Dying

Harry Styles? rejected? surely not...

Harry Style’s star is always on the rise, from music to movies and merchandise. After three movies now under his belt, two of which are set to be released this year, it seems Harry has developed his acting skills to a point where he could play anyone, even Elvis Presley.

That’s right, Harry actually auditioned and was very almost cast in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic ‘Elvis.

Harry shared the news that he had auditioned himself. He told Howard Stern during an interview that playing the part of Elvis would have been a dream come true for him.

“Elvis was probably the first person I knew besides my family when I was a kid”

“For that reason, there was something incredibly sacred surrounding him, so I thought I should try to get the part.”

But, it wasn’t meant to be. Harry goes on to share that even he faces rejection sometimes, explaining that the director chose another actor over him.

“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.”

“If they think the movie’s going to be better with someone else then I don’t want to do it because I don’t want to be the not-as-good version”

The other actor who did get the part is Austin Butler. The much-anticipated movie is set to be released next month on the 24th of June.
