ElvisWorld: Who Played the best Col Parker?

Beau Bridges played Col Tom Parker in a biopic more on the Col than the King:

6294363-l 551579647

It’s the only one that has any sort of sympathetic window on the Col, and the tiny bit about his infamous passion for elephants is here – it’s be interesting to see one where his Dutch formative years included – something that Elvis Presley had no idea about and would have fired Parker for lying to him at that kind of level – Elvis knew he was a con artist but he thought he was a fellow southerner who could get one over the Yankees, eh?

Parker had Elvis completely snowed and Elvis was content to coast and not take charge of his career or learn about the film industry he wanted to be a part of.

Beau also played Nixon and woulda been a better choice for the upcoming Elvis/Nixon movie…. I shudder to think how they will do it compared to the indie biopic.
