Forrest Gump. Woody. Josh Baskin. Mailbox Elvis? Join in as we dig through the many roles of the immensely charming, always dazzling Tom Hanks. Whether it’s a film you can recite front to back or a small appearance on Happy Days as a karate expert intent on beating the Fonz (seriously), join Managing Editor Adam Kivel and a special guest from the worlds of music, comedy, journalism, and more as they analyze a project in the star’s storied filmography. This is Hanks for the Memories.
Last week, we promised the thrilling conclusion to the special two-part Tom Hanks-featuring Family Ties extravaganza. But! We had the opportunity to chat with two of the founders of International Tom Hanks Day, a celebration so exciting that it could even put an FBI manhunt on hold. Two of the co-founders, Kevin Turk and Kellen Manley, stopped by the office to discuss the origins of International Tom Hanks Day, Lifeline Energy (the charity the event supports), and more. Be sure to check out thetomhanksday.com, lifelineenergy.org, and attend one of the Tom Hanks Day events on April 2nd, 2016.
