Some Tom Hanks trivia

  • Dislocated his shoulder when he fell through a rotting floor in a building in Germany while scouting locations with Steven Spielberg for the HBO series "Band of Brothers"
  • Was asked to play the title role in Jerry Maguire 
  • Has another brother who is a professor at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, IL
  • Gained and later lost 50 lbs. for his role in Cast Away
  • Was considered for the role of Peter Banning (Peter Pan) in Hook
  • He is an environmental conservationist and often advocates and supports natural causes.

My Fav 5 Tom Hanks movies
  1. Saving Private Ryan
  2. Terminal
  3. The "burbs"
  4. Big
  5. Cast Away

I think Saving Private Ryan has one of the greatest movie endings of all time.

But some think is should have ended different. {Video Embed}

My favorite Hanks film was also Saving Private Ryan. That was a terrific film. I also have to say that Forrest Gump is my second favorite (of his movies.)
