While we’ve all been chewing our nails off waiting for news on Harry Styles’ sophomore solo album, the Englishman has been keeping busy in not entirely unexpected ways — like auditioning for movies.

He made his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s 2017 war film Dunkirk as the hot-headed soldier Alex, and now Harry’s managed to get himself shortlisted to star in none other than Baz Luhrmann’s (The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge!, Romeo + Juliet) latest work.

According to Deadline, Luhrmann just finished filming auditions for a handful of top contenders to play Elvis Presley in a film about the superstar and his manager. This handful contained Harry, Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), Miles Teller (Footloose), and Austin Butler (The Carrie Diaries). There’s a lot of good voices and good hair in that group.

If Harry doesn’t get it, please at least pacify us with information about HS2.
