Matthew McConaughey Voices A Deadly Secret Agent Version Of The King In Netflix’s New Animated Series
Feb 6, 2023
We’re mere weeks away from finding out if Austin Butler stuns awards pundits and takes home the Oscar for Best Actor playing the legendary Elvis Presley in the aptly titled “Elvis.” However, also in March, we’re going to see the next actor take on the coveted role as the King of Rock and Roll, but in a very different project, “Agent Elvis.”

As seen in the new teaser for “Agent Elvis,” none other than Matthew McConaughey takes on the role as the iconic musical artist in an animated series that puts a unique spin on the story of the King. Instead of just being an incredible musical talent, the Elvis of “Agent Elvis” doubles as a lethal secret agent. Think James Bond but with more elaborate costumes and a monkey who is willing to shoot someone in the head.
And as weird as it sounds on paper, McConaughey is a great choice for this role. His Southern drawl kinda fits perfectly, honestly. Just in the teaser, you can tell he’s having a blast with such a ridiculous situation. “Agent Elvis” is co-created by Priscilla Presley and John Eddie, with the latter also serving as a co-showrunner alongside Mike Arnold.
“Agent Elvis” is set to debut on Netflix in March. You can watch the teaser below.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
