Tom Hanks defense his role as Colonel Tom Parker in Elvis
During a meeting at the Cannes Film Festival, Tom Hanks defense his role in the movie “Elvis“, and responded to the different views on the performance of the character Tom Parker, who discovered Elvis Presley, saying:‘I’m not interested in playing a bad guy just for the sake of, ‘Before I kill you, Mr. Bond, perhaps you’d like a tour of my installations.’ That’s OK, I get it, but that’s for other stuff . What Baz tantalized me with was, here was a guy who saw an opportunity to manifest a once-in-a-lifetime talent into a cultural force“
Tom Hanks also said he used prosthetic limbs and large amounts of cosmetics to portray the character, although he admitted at the festival that he “didn’t know what Colonel Tom Parker looked like”.
Tom Hanks added that Tom Parker’s methods of deceiving people are unusual, and also said that Parker “He was a man who brought joy to everything he did , along with just a little bit of larceny.”
He also noted that director Baz Luhrmann was the one who convinced him to play the role when he said, “There would have been no Elvis without Colonel Tom Parker; there would have been no Colonel Tom Parker without Elvis. A symbiotic relationship.“
