Tom Hanks shaves head for Elvis Presley movie in role as Colonel Tom Parker directed by Baz Luhrmann


#Tom #Hanks has a new hairdo — that is to say, no hair at all.

The 64-year-old actor (very briefly) revealed his new look during an appearance #Tuesday on “The #Graham #Norton #Show.”

#Hanks conspicuously had on a baseball cap for most of that appearance. #At one point, he explained that he was currently in #Australia filming #Baz #Luhrmann’s upcoming biopic about #Elvis #Presley, in which he plays #Presley’s manager #Colonel #Tom #Parker.

“#Let me show you the horrible haircut I have to have in order to portray #Colonel #Tom #Parker,” #Hanks said, while doing everything to hide his unfortunate haircut. “#Check out this horrible … #Do you see that? #Look at that thing?”

Then, for about a second, #Hanks ducked down and brought his hairless scalp into view.

#If you blinked, you might have missed it.

#But judging by the cries heard from the audience, everyone saw.

“I just scared the children. I want to apologise,” #Hanks said.

Tom Hanks felt a pang of guilt after his first divorce from wife Samantha Lewes.

#Though the bald look on #Hanks came as a surprise to many of his fans, it’s not the first time the actor has sported this look.

#Before the coronavirus pandemic began (and before he and his wife, actress #Rita #Wilson, were diagnosed with the virus), #Hanks was in #Australia doing pre-production work for the same movie.

#In #April, he appeared on “#Saturday #Night #Live” from home and explained what was going on with his hair — or lack thereof.

“#Don’t worry now, don’t be afraid,” he told the audience. “#This shaved head was just for a movie and my hair is growing back very slowly. #It does save time in the shower, so I don’t know maybe we should all do it, huh?”

A diary #Ledger kept while preparing for his role as The #Joker in <i>The #Dark #Knight</i> (2008), revealed that he was suffering from psychological trauma and barely slept, locking himself in a hotel room for weeks to get into the mind of the iconic villain.</p>
<p>#Ledger died from an accidental overdose of prescription medication at age 28, before the movie had wrapped. </p>
