Casting directors are holding an online open casting call for a Young Elvis leading role in the upcoming feature film by 20th Century Fox, 'Last Train to Memphis', a Biopic of Elvis' life.

We are now picturing thousands of young Elvis impersonators frantically preparing audition tapes.

 The producers of "Last Train to Memphis" are looking for an unknown to play Elvis Presley ... and they've announced a major online casting call.

Think you got what it takes to play Elvis, or at least an 18-22-year-old Elvis? Hopeful contenders should head over to YoungElvisCasting.com, where you'll find guidelines on how to create the ideal audition tape as well as sides from the script.

But you better be able to sing 6-8 bars of any Elvis song from before 1957.
"Last Train to Memphis" focuses on the years between Elvis's first, earth-shattering recordings and his meteoric rise to national prominence in 1956. These were years of revolutionary cultural turmoil, largely precipitated by Elvis's music. The screenplay recounts the story of his against-all-odds success due to his uncanny gift for self-invention, his unstoppable drive, and the new sound he created that changed the music world forever.
