What a fabulous actor! I absolutely adore him, and hope to see his career flourish and his talent seriously recognised in the years to come

how can there be so much info on this guy, it`s almost wrong. Even though he is an awesome actor and i loved him in the 2005 `King Kong` - keep up the good work!! : )

MileyCyrus488Mar 23, 2009

Honestly why did they have to put his claim to fame as being the son of tom hanks!? He is a really great actor...I loved to character he played in the show roswell. And to tell you the trueth I wouldn`t have known he was the son of tom hanks if I hadn`t read it here. Call me blind but he`s still a great actor with or without hanks for a last name.
