The 31-year-old revealed a lot of facts in his recent appearance at Variety’s Awards Circuit podcast. He said, “Especially when I was trying to get the part before Baz really welcomed me on the journey, we were trying to figure out if I could play older Elvis. My agent actually told me, ‘They don’t know if you can play older Elvis, so I think you need to gain some weight.'”
Eventually, he had to “body-adjustment suit” to play the legendary singer’s last days. Although it wasn’t natural he undoubtedly nailed the role.
