Lana Del Rey Wants to Play Priscilla Presley in Elvis Biopic

Relatively unknown actor, Austin Butler has been cast as Elvis Presley in one of the most sought after roles in Hollywood in Baz Lurhmann’s upcoming biopic.

Now, the buzz around town is who will play his wife Priscilla Presley.

Word is, a singer who bears a striking resemblance to her is vying heavily for the role, Lana Del Rey.

Radar Online reports it's a lifelong dream for Lana to break into acting and she is a diehard Elvis fan, who just happens to looks an awful lot like Priscilla.

But Baz is a bit hesitant, as Lana has no acting reel.

We'll have to wait and see who gets the job, but Tom Hanks has signed on to play Elvis' manager Colonel Tom Parker. So the Priscilla announcement should come soon.
