G-Eazy doesn'T Get The Elvis Presley Biopic Role

Not fit to be King.

G-Eazy campaign for the role of Elvis Presley were not as expected. Austin Butler, one of the stars of Quentin Tarantino's film once upon A Time In Hollywood, has been elected as "The King" in an upcoming biographical film directed by Baz Luhrmann.

Butler (pictured below), was chosen through a list of possible stars that included Harry Styles, Ansel Elgort, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and miles Teller. G-Eazy was not among the top contenders, but, according to reports, he threw his hat in the ring in a attempt to landing the role..focused on the ad {

G-Eazy had been in talks with Warner Bros. — the company behind the film — and secured a meeting with Luhrmann last month. A source said G-Eazy and Luhrmann spent some time together in the City of New York, where the multi-platinum selling rapper launched himself for the role of Elvis.
