Although Hanks, 65, hasn’t performed in Nashville, his latest film has ties to country music. He plays in Baz Luhrmann Elvis, a new biopic about Country Music Hall of Famer Elvis Presley, as Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Elvis had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival last month and hits theaters on June 23. The film also features Once upon a time in Hollywoodis Austin Butler as Presley.

Parker is a counter role for Hanks, who has played likable characters in his more recent films. Hanks wore heavy makeup and prosthetics to transform into Presley’s controversial manager. At Cannes, Hanks told reporters that Parker was a “mercurial, brilliant man who made sure to line his pockets at the same time.”

“I’m not interested in playing a villain just for the sake of saying, ‘Before I kill you, Mr. Bond, you might like to visit my facilities.’ It’s okay, I get it, but it’s for other things,” Hanks said, reports PEOPLE. “What [director] Baz [Luhrmann] wowed me with was, here’s a guy who saw an opportunity to turn a once-in-a-lifetime talent into a cultural force.” Hanks also stars in the new Disney film Pinocchio movie, which will be released on Disney+ on September 8.
