I loved him in "Philadelphia" ... AIDS ridden and dying. When is life going to imitate art? One can only hope.

Why don't the people in Hollyweird make a movie belittling the Jewish or Muslim religions, like they love to do against the Catholic Church?

How did little Opie" from the Mayberry RFD series grown into a such a bald headed, anti-G-d, religion hating monster in just one lifetime. It seems Hollywood, with its drugs and decadance can rot the minds of the best of us. Unbelievable!

Because they are cowards and their victims are easier targets. The muslims would hunt them down and cut their stupid gay loving, drug saturated heads off. PS: I don't blame them. Who really needs the Godless to live amongst us. Turning the other cheek will one day get us all killed.

I would love to see Hanks play a villian: like Henry Fonda did in Once Upon a Time in The West. That would make me pay attention.

Playing another good guy or saintly person bores me.

The idiots don't want to be responsible for original thought. Its easier and less effort to drink the kool aid and bleat the same nonsense. Try thinking sometime, the first it might make your head hurt, but it will get easier with time.

Yeah, he DID do something heinous. His wife of 20 years was his "ho" that he broke up his first marriage with. I have no respect for either of them.

Hard to believe that Tom Hanks could generate these hugely emotinal reactions - one way or another.

Why would anyone take the time to spew hatred or personal praise about a celebrity - and a total stranger whom you have zero directd knowledge about?

There is a world for someone who does this. That word is LOSER.

Just how far up yourass is your head?
You are a prime example of the type of loser I referenced.

Did you actually take the time to log onto your computer - 3 DAYS LATER, read posts, and try to start an argument about your (or anyone's) completely baseless and irrelevant opinions on a celebrity??????

You are a loser. Get a life. Worry aabout yourself and your family. Get a dog. Find something that has personal meaning and run with it. Stop being part of the problem in our shallow celebrity based culture you tool.
