Tom Hanks to make Broadway debut

Monday October 15, 2012

Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks is making his Broadway debut.

The actor will play a tabloid journalist in the Nora Ephron play Lucky Man. Tom had collaborated with the late screenwriter in films Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail.

The work will track the rise and fall of real-life journalist Mike McAlary as he uncovered the police scandals in 1980s New York. He died at the age of 41 in 1998.

Tom's only stage performances to date have been of low-key Shakespeare plays in the Seventies.
