Which actors star in the Agent Elvis animated series cast?

Meet the cast of Agent Elvis (2023) and the characters they bring to animated life with this handy guide. We highly recommend the show if you love 2D cartoons (something we attribute to the glory 90’s).

The new series was created by the king’s ex-wife Priscilla Presley, who appears in the show in a supporting role, and the rest of the cast is pretty impressive, too, with Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey in the title role, and Succession’s Kieran Culkin and Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks also making an appearance.

Presley previously said she wanted the series to be a way of “introducing Elvis to the youth today, wondering why he was so famous and to see him as a hero saying “I know that this is a dream come true for Elvis because this is really what he wanted to do. He wanted to be a federal agent, and for me, I’ve always wanted to give Elvis what he wanted and never really quite made it.

“He was a beautiful human being and a very talented human being, and I want kids to see who he really was in this because he really was, he wanted to be an agent. And now he is.”

Matthew McConaughey and Don Cheadle play two memorable characters in Agent Elvis. But who else is involved in the cast list?
