Sounds like someone explained the meaning of “EGOT” to Tom Hanks. If you watch ’30 Rock,’ you know that the slang refers to the select few who’ve won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award. Seeing as how Hanks has two Oscars and an Emmy (for ‘The Pacific’), he’s setting his sights on a Tony by taking a lead role in a Broadway show.
Tom Hanks could be playing Walt Disney in 'Saving Mr. Banks,' which is not a sequel to the Hanks-starring 'Saving Private Ryan,' but a film about the making of the film 'Mary Poppins.' 'Banks' will be directed by John Lee Hancock, and the role of P.L. Travers - the author of 'Mary Poppins' - has been offered to Emma Thompson.
