Hanks

After becoming the first person in Hollywood to publicly disclose contracting COVID-19 in 2020 alongside his wife Rita Wilson, Hanks had a productive 2021 as the industry slowly bounced back from shutdown. As one of the fundraising chairs for the Academy Museum, Hanks helped preside over its widely well-received and long-delayed debut. His partnership with Apple continued with November’s sci-fi drama “Finch” and his upcoming WWII series “Masters of the Air” with fellow executive producer Steven Spielberg.
