Titmouse, Inc. has delivered some truly great adult animation in the last several years, including Animaniacs, Inside Job, The Legend of Vox Machina, and The Boys Presents: Diabolical. Next up on their slate is Agent Elvis, a star-studded spy comedy in the same vein as Archer with added gratuitous violence. The preview speaks for itself.
I appreciate that they’ve played it close to the vest until now, and limited the trailer to mostly action scenes and a few jokes. Who’s in Agent Elvis? Honestly, the list of actors not taking part is probably shorter than those who are. Top billing goes to Matthew McConaughey as Mr. Presley himself. Don Cheadle plays the mysterious Commander, the Nick Fury-esque head of the covert agency. Kaitlin Olson of It’s Always Sunny and The Mick costars, as does Johnny Knoxville as the King’s sidekick and pilot. The cast also includes *deep breath* Nievy Nash, Jason Mantzoukas, Asif Ali, Ed Helms, Christina Hendricks, Kieran Culkin, Fred Armisen, Simon Pegg, Gary Cole, Tara Strong, and a slew of others including Mrs. Priscilla Presley herself. Oh, and a drunk chimp. The animation is highly stylized and feels like a good fit for the bonkers action. Really, it’s like Titmouse made it just for me.
The 10-episode Netflix series premieres March 17. If their past work is any indication, Titmouse can expect me to stream this one on repeat.
