What''s the origin of the Elvis movie? Here''s a list of all those to look out for, from the main cast to all the cameo appearances.

Austin Butler is Elvis Presley, aka The King

Austin Butler takes on the title role of Elvis Presley, and according to most critics (including our own film reviewer), he''s done an excellent job. Even when the character is as iconic as The King of rock and roll, it''s difficult to follow the lineage between caricature and inhabiting a character, especially if it''s gone too far.

Butler is able to play Elvis from his teenage years, starting out as a group singer, until before Elvis in his early days, exhausted, tired, and addicted to life and addiction, yet still having a show that draws a spell on everyone. Butler is a must have actor for the future. In addition, Butler is willing to play with him until early April. He is also capable of playing with a movie that allows for more viewing.

Tom Hanks is Colonel Tom Parker

Colonel Tom Parker (not his actual name) was Elvis'' manager and business partner and an all-around bad egg. Andreas Cornelis van Kuijk, a Dutch rugby player, changed his name, faked his military background, and later joined a music promotion where he developed a sense of belonging to Elvis and encouraged him to perform in the Military for so many years.

Tom Hanks is an established drama actor with a slew of impressive roles, including six Academy Award nominations, two victories (for Philadelphia, 1993, and Forrest Gump, 1994) as well as seven Emmy victories. Before he premieres in the western, he plays Colonel Tom with prosthetics, a bald wig, and an odd (not Dutch) accent.

King was one of the most influential American R&B singers in music history, including "The Thrill Is Gone," "Is You or Is You Ain," and "When Love Comes to Town," and "I remember Elvis distinctly because he was gentle and polite to a fault. I liked that. I liked his voice, although I was unaware he was ready to conquer the world."

Kelvin Harrison Jr. is based in cinemas as diverse as possible since he was a kid.

David Wenham is Hank Snow

In the 1950s, Hank Snow became a Canadian country music icon known throughout Elvis''s early years. After his son, Jimmie Snow heard Elvis on the radio playing his first song Thats All Right.

Kodi Smit-McPhee as Jimmie Rodgers Snow

Jimmie Snow, the son of Hank Snow, is a country music producer, and has resigned from his father''s footsteps before becoming a pastor. As Lurhmann''s film shows, Jimmie saw Elvis on the radio and saw his teen audience appeal and led him onto his father''s tour. He also hosted Grand Ole Gospel Time at the Grand Ole Opry.

Dacre Montgomery is Steve Binder

Alton Mason, a fashion artist, has made his acting debut as Little Richard in the film. It''s a powerful moment it comes just as Elvis is starting to doubt himself and his musical abilities. Unlike Elvis, he learns to follow his own rules and gets back in the game.

Natasha Bassett is Dixie Locke

Dixie Locke was Elvis'' first serious girlfriend. We call her "poor Dixie" because as fame fades, Elvis arrives out of the door and off on tour with barely a hint of her. She''s not a footnote in time, but she makes it into the film, which we believe.

Natasha Bassett, who plays Dixie, is yet another Aussie cast member. (We believe she used the epidemic to recruit close to home) She''s had her own experience of portraying a famous singer and playing Britney Spears in the 2017 Lifetime biopic.
