Tom's new movie! [Jan. 31st, 2013|07:51 pm]

Very excited that Tom has a new role! Tom Hanks is the producer. Here's the description of "Parkland": "A recounting of the chaotic events that occurred at Dallas' Parkland Hospital on the day U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated."

He's working with all sorts of cool people: Jackie Earle Haley, Paul Giammati, Jackie Weaver, Marcia Gay Harden, Colin Hanks and even Zac Ephron has a role!

It's not yet been revealed who Tom is playing & we've been speculating on twitter...perhaps Jackie Kenndy's bodyguard, Clint Hill? He was 31 years old in 1963, a former football player. Tom seems to have "blood" on his sleeve in the photo below (credit: TravisPMartin.) That would be an intense role to play; Mr. Hill is the last surviving person from the President's limousine.

Regardless of who he plays, YAY TOM, it's about time we saw you act again again!

I've been reading up on the other two agents in the car and they're significantly older, too old for TW to play. He could be playing an agent from the second car, but I don't see how he would've gotten blood on him.

I wish they weren't so secretive about who he's playing. It's clear now he's been working on the film since last fall. Why would they wait until yesterday to announce it?

Exactly - and he's not dressed like a doctor! If he is playing Clint, even if it's a small part, it should be good stuff!

I think they only started filming in Austin this week? He was probably cast in Dec. Hopefully the studio tracks the google analytics and sees how "Tom Welling" & "Parkland" blew up yesterday so they know what an enthusiastic fanbase he has. Would also be nice if the twitter set source told Tom he was fielding excited fans for the last 48 hours!

I think the buzz cut goes back to October. It could have been he was testing for the role back then and decided he'd have a better chance of being cast if he looked more the part.

In November he had to drop out of a celeb golf tournament that had been rescheduled due to Hurricane Sandy. The official reason his management gave the tournament was that he was filming that day. BUT when questioned by TW fans the tournament officials said it could've just been an excuse and to not take it as official news he had a new project.

It's the timing of the haircut and the missed golf game that leads me to say it's "clear" he's been working on it since last fall.

Gosh how I love over analyzing stuff like this! I really missed doing it.

LOL, I know! And how meta-textually perfect is it that we're analyzing a JFK film?

Maybe they shot interiors and exteriors at different times & locations?

They're not telling us the whole story. It's a conspiracy.

They probably did build the interior sets on a sound stage. Parkland hospital probably looks quite different than it did 50 years ago.

Also, why are they shooting in Austin and not Dallas?

The more you look at it the more their cover story falls apart. It's so obviously a conspiracy.

ETA: Tariel22 has found out that Colin H. is playing a doctor...so Tom as Clint is seeming more likely!

Also, why are they shooting in Austin and not Dallas?

WHAT ARE THEY COVERING UP? (Hopefully not Tom's chest...he'll have to take off that bloody shirt at some point!)

I'm now committed to TW playing Clint Hill, which is not a good thing. I never get what I want. :(

And his pants! I'm sure there's blood and bits of brains on his pants as well. We just can't see it in the photo.

Sadly, I don't think this film will provide fan service the way The Fog did and have a scene where TW takes off his shirt in the middle of a conversation for no real reason.
