What is it about Elvis Presley that people want to reimagine him as something more than the King of Rock ‘n Roll? Enter Agent Elvis, an off-the-wall animated series that features Matthew McConaughey as the voice of Elvis Presley, international superspy.
Co-created by Priscilla Presley and rocker John Eddie, the series finds Elvis recruited by the government to become a covert operative…when he’s not busy entertaining the masses. Elvis finds himself traveling the globe to stop dangerous villains that look like they were ripped right out of a James Bond movie.
From the animation to the bonkers tone, Agent Elvis looks like a cross between Archer and Hit-Monkey, only with a lot more “Viva Las Vegas.” He even has his own deranged monkey sidekick.
Joining McConaughey in the voice cast are Kaitlin Olson, Johnny Knoxville, Niecy Nash, Tom Kenny, and Don Cheadle. They’re joined by a wealth of celebrity guests, including Ed Helms, Jason Mantzoukas, Christina Hendricks, Kieran Culkin, Chris Elliot, Asif Ali, Fred Armisen, Ego Nwodim, Simon Pegg, Craig Robinson, Gary Cole, George Clinton, Tara Strong, Tony Cavalero, and Priscilla Presley.
Agent Elvis hits Netflix on March 17th.
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.
