Tom Hanks was so desperate to team up with his son Colin on the big screen that he actually forced his way into his son’s new movie. The Oscar winner actor revealed that he was so impressed with the script for The Great Buck Howard that he decided he wanted to play his son’s dad whether he liked it or not, reports China Daily.
“I selfishly attached myself as the dad. I didn’t even ask Colin, I just said, ‘Hey listen, I’d like to play the dad’. He kind of rolled his eyes and said, ‘Well yeah, I can see
why’. And that was that,” said Hanks.
The plot of the film, which also stars Emily Blunt, revolves around a young man who accepts a job as the assistant to a jaded illusionist, played by John Malkovich.
It was premiered in New York this week.
