Tom Hanks is also one of my favorite actors. Here are my favorites -

  • Bridge of Spies - 2015 (directed by Steven Spielberg)
  • Catch Me If You Can - 2002 (directed by Steven Spielberg)
  • Charlie Wilson's War - 2007 (directed by Mike Nichols, Tom Hanks producer)
  • The Da Vinci Code - 2006 (directed by Ron Howard)
  • Angels & Demons - 2009 (directed by Ron Howard)
  • Appollo 13 - 1995 (directed by Ron Howard)

He also has a long list of credits as producer or executive producer, including the award winning HBO mini-series, John Adams (executive producer on 7 episodes).
