Thomas Jeffrey Hanks was born on July 9, 1956 in Concord, California. Without exaggeration, he can be described as one of the best actors of his generation – and also one of the nicest. Despite his success (2 Oscars, 82 other prizes, 152 nominations), Mr. Nice Guy is simply an accessible, friendly and down-to-earth person. Second marriage without scandal to fellow actor Rita Wilson (seen together in Schlaflos in Seattle), two children (plus two from his first marriage, of which son Colin is also an actor). Almost a bit scary, this Mr. Hanks – he is not only successful as an actor, but also as a producer (Mamma Mia, Band of Brothers, Evan Almighty and others), author (That Thing you do!) And as a dubbing voice (Toy Story 1-4). And then he also collects – totally sympathetic – old, mechanical typewriters.
