Tom Hanks To The Rescue

esteban-esposito - June 23, 2015

Tom Hanks is in talks to play Captain "Sully" Sullenberger, who once landed a fire spewing jet on the Hudson River with his bare hands and later that night rescued a crippled squirrel from an acorn tree using just his penis and wisdom points. 

This was after Brian Williams had already done this twice, but Sully is modest and never brought it up. 

Hanks has become synonymous with playing real life heroes, and it is debatable whether heroes such as Sully are now acting of their own volition or if they simply desire the approval of Tom Hanks, who could be president if he wasn't busy saving the world one film at a time. 

The movie will no doubt be a solid watch if you go in with a decent buzz and will more than likely make your mother cry, although it's unclear if she's shedding a tear for Sully, or the real hero in all of this, Mr. Thomas Eugene Wallingford Hanks. Ignore those stories about his son being an asshole, everybody's got one of those.
