TOM HANKS became the first actor in over 50 years to win back-to-back Best Actor Academy Awards® when he took his second Oscar® for his unforgettable performance in the title role in Robert Zemeckis' "Forrest Gump." In addition, his work in the film brought him a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. The year before, he had been honored with his first Academy Award®, as well as a Golden Globe Ward for Best Actor, for his moving portrayal of AIDS-stricken lawyer Andrew Beckett in Jonathan Demme's "Philadelphia."

He had previously won a Golden Globe Award and earned an Oscar® nomination for his portrayal of a little boy in a man's body in Penny Marshall's "Big." He garnered another Golden Globe nomination for work opposite Meg Ryan in the romantic comedy hit "Sleepless in Seattle," directed by Nora Ephron. Hanks, Meg Ryan and Nora Ephron most recently reunited for the upcoming romantic comedy "You've Got Mail."

Hanks received widespread critical and audience acclaim for his work in "Apollo 13," in which he starred as astronaut Jim Lovell. His passion for the space program has most recently carried over the acclaimed HBO miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon," which chronicles the story of America's Apollo missions. Hanks executive produced and hosted the series, in addition to directing one segment, writing or co-writing several others, and acting in an episode as well.

In 1996, Hanks made his successful feature film writing and directing debut with "That Thing You Do," in which he also starred. The title song spawned a hit single and also received an Academy Award® nomination for Best Original Song.

His other film credits include "Bachelor Party," Splash," "A League of Their Own," "Punchline," "Nothing in Common" and "Volunteers."
