One of the reasons everyone loves Tom Hanks – he has a great sense of humor and is genuinely one of the nicest actors out there. Recently, the Nerdist editor tried to bribe Hanks to do an interview by offering him a rare typewriter, using his knowledge of Hanks’ fondness for typewriters.
Hanks replied to the letter, “Dear Chris, Ashley, and all the diabolical genuies at Nerdist Industries. Just who do you think you are to try to briibe me into an appearance on your 'thing' with this gift of the most fantastic Cornona Silent typewriter made in 1934?You are out of your minds if you think... that I... wow, this thing has great action... and this deep crimson color... Wait! I'm not so shallow as to... and it types nearly silently... Oh, OKAY! I will have my people contact yours and work out some kind of interview process... Damn you all to hell, Tom Hanks."
The resulting podcast of the interview is said to be hilarious and insightful, as most interviews with Hanks tend to be. Hanks also recently had a run-in with some kids at a restaurant, and actually posed with them in spontaneous, fake drunk pictures.
Hanks will next be appearing in the much anticipated 'Cloud Atlas', co-starring with Halle Berry and Jim Sturgess. He is also said to be prepping to shoot for 'Saving Mr. Banks', which is current in development at Disney.
