Tom Hanks will continue his quest to play every historical figure ever by taking on the role of Colonel Tom Parker in Baz Luhrmann‘s untitled Elvis biopic. Parker was the man who discovered Elvis Presley, helping him land a record deal and serving as the King’s manager from 1955 to 1977. Elvis and Parker had a very close relationship, with Parker overseeing nearly every single aspect of Presley’s life. For his film adaptation, Lurhmann wanted a star to play Parker, while a newcomer will play Elvis.
