The Forrest Gump alum is currently promoting his new film Elvis, in which Austin Butler is the lead.

In the flick, Hanks plays Colonel Tom Park, who discovered Elvis Presley and put him on the fast track to stardom. During the Cannes Film Festival, the Oscar Winner spoke about the role.

"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," the Hollywood star said. "What [director] Baz [Luhrmann] tantalized me with was, here was a guy who saw an opportunity to manifest a once-in-a-lifetime talent into a cultural force."

"He knew that about Elvis the first time he saw Elvis' effect on an audience. There is a moment, very much taken from fact, where the Colonel sees some guy onstage, doing something he never heard before, wiggling like crazy, without a doubt a powerful voice," he continued. "But he wasn't paying attention to what the guy was doing onstage, he was paying attention to the effect on the audience. He realized that guy was forbidden fruit, and you can make an awful lot of money on forbidden fruit."
