Actor

Now an actor-producer-director and beyond, Hanks scaled the heights of Hollywood by basking in his regular-Joe appeal, first attracting attention on the short-lived ABC sitcom “Bosom Buddies” then becoming a veritable movie star with his first Academy Awards nomination for the comedy “Big.” Just the second man to win best actor Oscars in consecutive years, with “Philadelphia” and “Forrest Gump,” he is ever prolific, turning out such critical and commercial toppers as “Bridge of Spies,” “Sully” and “The Post.” And indelibly etched in American lore is his voice as Woody in the family-friendly mega-franchise “Toy Story,” whose latest installment is currently under way.
