According to Sci-Fi
, Academy Award winner Tom Hanks
is being considered to go
where no legitimate actor has ever gone before. Rumors are spreading faster than a buzz at a New Years party that Hanks
may have a role in the next Star Trek
film. People are saying that Hanks'connection to the current screenwriter
on the project, Eric Jendresen
, is what's pushing this one forward.The
two last joined up to help pen the teleplay for the HBO series Band of Brothers
, and if Jendresen remains as
screenwriter all the way through, there's a good chance Hanks may jump on board in some capacity.
Now, before you
jump on me for that whole "legitimate actor" comment I made in the paragraph above, I'm going to give you Patrick Stewart. In fact, if Hanks shows up, he'll be the biggest name
actor since Stewart to join Trek. Could this be just what the series needs right now? A giant A-list actor to
help revive a fading series? What do you think about this one?
