The One Role Tom Hanks Wants…But Can’t Land
Tom Hanks has been labeled the most versatile actor in Hollywood. That’s because he’s played a wide array of characters in almost every genre. But there’s one role he still hasn’t tackled. He says he’s always wanted to play a comic-book role, but just can’t seem to land one.
Hanks is almost twice the age of other actors playing superheros. Christian Bale was 31 when he first starred as Batman, Henry Cavill was 30 in “Man of Steel,” and Tobey Maguire was 27 when his Spider-Man trilogy first opened.
