In Dune 2, Austin Butler plays Feyd-Rautha, who has nothing in common with Elvis Presley. Dave Bautista says so, who spoke about the performance of his fellow Oscar nominee for Baz Luhrmann’s film.
Let’s go back to talking about Dune 2 e you Austin Butlerwho got the role of Feyd-Rauthaalias the Baron’s nephew Vladimir Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård). We know for the actor the experience con Denis Villeneuve and the large cast of the second film based on the novel by Frank Herbert was exciting, but today we learn more about his performance. In an interview with USA Today, in fact, a fellow set of Butler she said her voice is nothing like that of Elvis Presley that we have heard in Elvis. This set mate is dave bautistawhich plays the part of Gloss “Beast” Rabban Harkonnenthe brother of Feyd-Rautha.
The character of Austin Butler was not present in the first Dune, thus the actor is a new entry in the universe brought to life by the French-Canadian director. We will see it in action next fall, along with Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Florence Pugh, etc. Then we can listen Austin and give reason or not to Bautistacurrently in theaters in the thriller-horror Knocking at the doordirected by M. Night Shyamalan.

Dave Bautista on Austin Butler in Dune 2
But what exactly did he say dave bautista of the vocal performance of Austin Butlerwhich thanks to the film by Baz Luhrmann earned his first Academy Award nomination for Best Actor?
He’s the sweetest boy I’ve ever known. The character of him is neither Austin Butler neither Elvis. Her voice is different, his look is different. Everything about him is scary.
And then dave bautista talked about his Rabban Harkonnenwhich in Dune 2 will have much more space than in Dune. The actor has called his character “simply a nightmare”, specifying that in the second film everything seems taken to the extreme:
The first film was an introduction to this second one. A lot of things happen, it’s bloodier, more political, more intense. There are also moments of lightness that manage to be funny, even if it’s absurd humor, but they are present, and that’s why it’s all more amplified than in the first film.
Going back to Austin Butler, we must remember that he is a Method actor, who therefore immerses himself completely in the characters entrusted to him. So it was for Elvis Presleywith which Austin it has practically merged, often remaining in part and managing to appropriate the movements of the King of rock and his voice, or rather his accent from the South of the States.
We remember that Dune 2 will arrive in US theaters on November 3rd.
