AceShowbiz revisits the ten memorable characters Tom Hanks has played in feature films throughout the years, listing his G.H. Dorr, Ph. D to Professor Robert Langdon.
Establishing himself as the finest actor of his generation through various kinds of movies over the span of three decades, Tom Hanks has collected numerous nominations for coveted awards and nailed back-to-back Oscars' Best Actor. This Hollywood actor also proves to be a gold digger at the box office as he is listed #3 among the highest grossing actors of all time.
California-born Hanks made his break in the entertainment industry as a cross dresser advertising executive in short-lived cult sitcom "Bosom Buddies" before branching out to the big screen and demonstrating his versatility. Different kind of movie genres from romantic comedy to thriller and from drama to animation, he has tasted them all. Instead of only acting up a character in a movie, he brings the characters to life, delivering one unforgettable performance after another.
