“The Post” Feature Highlights Tom Hanks’ Performance

Tom Hanks is easily one of the most prolific and accredited actors working today.  In Steven Spielberg’s The Post, he embodies the role of Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, a man hell bent on uncovering a massive government lie that spanned three decades and four Presidents.

20th Century Fox has just released a short feature that highlights Hanks’ fascinating performance.  Interviews with the director and cast shine a light on the intensity and dedication required for such a role, not to mention the timelines of the film’s central story.

The Post expands nationwide on January 12th and co-stars Meryl Streep and Bob Odenkirk.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
