You want see him in this clip, because he’s JUST a producer, but with Parkland, Hanks gets his Americana fix by examining the reaching effects of the assassination of JFK on the people around the event.

That means an ensemble cast that was salivating over the opportunity to flex their intellectual muscles by working with a post-Splash Hanks and deal with this seminal moment in our nation’s history.

Also, they’re dressed like Mad Men.

In an effort to ensure that history classes in high schools the nation over always have something to do when their teachers are too hungover to teach, Tom Hanks is going back into the historical drama fire with Parkland, a feature drama named after the hospital that treated both mortally wounded Lee Harvey Oswald, and the mortally wounded president.

The film will focus on people on the periphery of the national tragedy, like Abraham Zapruder, secret service agents, and the doctors involved. Nothing is mentioned of Hanks stepping in front of the camera, though I think he would make a very solemn and respectful Jackie O.

Hanks has demonstrated a recurring interest in breathing life to historical drama from the golden years of American history, having dabbled in astronauts, WWII, and now the Kennedy assassination, just like I did when I was 12 years old.
