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.
We’re on the Road to Podcast this week, as Consequence of Sound managing editor Adam Kivel is joined by CoS contributor/playwright/all-around-great-guy Dan Caffrey to discuss Road to Perdition. This one’s a mob drama starring Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, Daniel Craig, Jude Law, and Stanley Tucci, but somehow still hard-boiled. Together, Adam and Dan discuss how this one stacks up against director Sam Mendes’ American Beauty, whether or not Jude Law could be a psychopath, and Jack Palance’s commercial work in the ’80s.
