Tom Hanks

Author and Actor


Tom Hanks has won Academy Awards for best actor for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump. He has starred in, among many other films, Big, Sleepless in Seattle, Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile, Cast Away, Catch Me If You Can, Captain Phillips, Bridge of Spies, Sully, Toy Story, The Post, and It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker. Author of Uncommon Type, a best-selling collection of stories, The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece is his first novel. Spanning 80 years of a changing America, it is funny, touching, and wonderfully thought-provoking, offering an insider’s take on the momentous efforts it takes to make a film. At once a reflection on America’s past and present, on the world of show business and the real world we all live in.
