Matthew McConaughey to Voice Elvis Presley in Netflix’s Agent Elvis

The teaser introduces McConaughey as the voice of Presley, who is recruited by a spy agency to work against madmen and terrorists. The clip does not reveal why the singer chose to enter the world of spies; however, he does joke about the 007 franchise. The comic undertone also makes fun of a number of historical events of the 1960s and 70s.

Presley is shown as the first man to have landed on the moon in 1969. He is also seen meeting President Richard Nixon before the Watergate scandal. “Every once in a while, man accomplishes the impossible,” McConaughey says in voice-over.

“Every once in a while, man accomplishes the impossible. All it takes is someone with a dream. Cause, when a man dreams, he can change the world,” he adds. Agent Elvis will premiere on Netflix sometime in March this year. The exact release date is yet to be revealed by the streaming giant.

The Series was Announced in 2019

Agent Elvis was first announced in 2019 with the title Agent King. The official synopsis of the show reads, “Elvis Presley trades in his jumpsuit for a jet pack when he is covertly inducted into a secret government spy program to battle the dark forces that threaten the country he loves – all while holding down his day job as the King of Rock and Roll.”

Mike Arnold serves as writer and showrunner, with John Eddie as co-showrunner and co-writer. The executive producers include McConaughey, Shannon Prynoski, Kevin Noel, Chris Prynoski, Jamie Salter, Antonio Canobbio, Marc Rosen, Ben Kalina, and Corey Salter. Fletcher Moules has co-executive produced the show.

Elvis Presley’s animated look has been created by Academy Award nominee Robert Valley. The character’s wardrobe has been designed by fashion designer John Varvatos. Sony Pictures Animation, the studio behind Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, has produced the series with Authentic Brands Group and Titmouse.

Elvis’ Wife has Created the Show

Priscilla Presley, the wife of Elvis, serves as the creator of the show along with John Eddie. During the project’s announcement in 2019, Priscilla had said, “From the time Elvis was a young boy, he always dreamed of being the superhero fighting crime and saving the world! Agent King lets him do just that.”

“My co-creator John Eddie and I are so excited to be working with Netflix and Sony Animation on this amazing project and getting the chance to show the world an Elvis they haven’t seen before,” she added.
