Hanks for the Memories Episode 3: The Man With One Red Shoe

on February 01, 2016, 4:00pm

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.

Haven’t seen this one? Yeah. Neither had we. But if you’re intrigued by a Tom Hanks-starring film that also features Star Wars’ Carrie Fisher, James (NOT JIM!) Belushi, Dabney Coleman, and the grandfather from Gilmore Girls — and also some weird sex stuff — then have we ever got the movie for you! T-Hanx plays a man who gets dragged into the middle of a battle for supremacy in the US intelligence community, and also he’s a violinist, and Carrie Fisher and James Belushi have a Tarzan fetish, and Squiggy is in it. Consequence of Sound film editor Justin Gerber stops by to talk about “playing Tarzan,” how many teeth he has, Mr. Mom, and more. Enjoy!
