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!

Well, it had occurred to me that WB might have made it worth Tom's while to stay out of the public eye until after the new Superman movie was released. It's probably nuts, but I just couldn't understand why he would abandon his career like that. And him resurfacing now, in a project that won't be released until well after MoS's release....well, it's just something to consider.

That's really interesting - hadn't even considered the timing of MoS. There could be definite advantages for Tom in a deal like that, especially if he still has his production company.
