The best of Tom Hanks? Where does one start? His career spans
more than three decades. He has two Academy Awards. He has played unforgettable
parts, been in some majorly iconic movies, directed and produced, and done all
of those "SNL" hosting gigs and the list goes on and on. The man is hard to
distill into 10 movies.
Bing: More on Tom Hanks | More about 'Cloud Atlas'
First a star on the sitcom "Bosom Buddies," the actor has come a long way,
acting in arguably one of the greatest WWII pictures ever made, "Saving Private Ryan," and in one of the most
beloved childhood trilogies of all time, "Toy Story." And then there's just Mr. Hanks
himself, a movie star and, to many who adore him, a real guy. Again, this is
tough going, so don't holler at us for forgetting a few. We didn't forget; we
just need ... a Part 2. With that, and in anticipation of "Cloud Atlas," here are a handful of Hanks' best.
