Tom Hanks

Dark Horse Lead Actor: 'Charlie Wilson's War'

Why: By reputation alone, Hanks is always a viable candidate, no matter the project. The fact that “Charlie” is directed by Mike Nichols and the screenplay is written by Aaron Sorkin certainly makes one believe that Hanks will get plenty of attention here as a slick congressman who changes world history. The film plays for as broad an audience as possible, and Hanks uses his everyman qualities — he loves naked woman as much as he loves America — to the highest degree.
