Watch Tom Hanks 10 essential feel-good roles
When does a divided country come together? When the health of America’s Dad is at risk.
Last Thursday, Tom Hanks revealed on social media that while in Australia filming Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic, he and wife Rita Wilson had tested positive for the coronavirus (Idris Elba has also announced he has the virus), which has since brought the entertainment world and most of the globe to a standstill. The love and shout-outs were immediate, and Hanks has kept all of us apprised of his recovery, quoting “A League of Their Own” and thanking “the Helpers” – a nod to one of his most recent roles, as Mister Rogers in “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”
Hanks’ diagnosis made the pandemic feel real to film fans, and for those needing a pick-me-up as self-isolation and social distancing continue to be the order of the day, here are the beloved Oscar winner’s 10 essential feel-good roles.
