In preparation for a movie role we’ve witnessed actors and actress’s go through drastic measures to embody the role of their characters. From weight gain to extreme weight loss or even sporting a new hairdo.
Through a virtual appearance to The Graham Norton Show, Tom Hanks, jokingly didn’t hesitate to express his displeasure for his new look as he prepares for the role of Elvis Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker. “Here, let me show you the horrible haircut I have to have…. Check out this horrible — can you see that?” Hanks exclaims through a video chat from Australia. “Look at that thing!” The reveal of his patchy bald head was followed by a unison gasp from the audience.
The 64-year-old Oscar winning actor will co-star alongside Austin Butler as he will take on the iconic role of the people’s Rock and Roll King, Elvis Presley. Australian Director “Baz” Luhrmann (The Great Gatsby) had to put a stop to production in March due to Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson both contracting COVID-19. Production for the untitled film resumed in September. A release date has yet to be set for the movie.
