Tom Hanks’ career is the stuff of which showbiz legends are made. The affable actor first came to prominence in the 1984 romantic comedy Splash. In the mid-90s, he delivered a slew of critical and commercial hits that earned him two successive Oscars along with the respect of his peers, public's love and a hefty per-project pay raise. Hanks is ranked the biggest box office star of all time with approximately $4 billion total box office gross at an average of $107 million per film. He has been involved with 17 films that grossed over $100 million at the worldwide box office. Tom Hanks’ role as Robert Langdon in the movie Angels & Demons reportedly fetched him the highest pay ever for an actor. Owner of the most expensive house in Florida, Hanks has made donations to support numerous Democratic politicians and has been quite vocal regarding his support for same-sex marriage, environmental causes and alternative fuels. An advocate of eco-friendly technologies, Hanks likes to invest a part of his massive wealth in electric vehicles and owns both a Toyota RAV4 EV and the first production AC Propulsion eBox. He was also a lessee of an EV1 before it was recalled. A vehement supporter of NASA's manned space program, Hanks once said that he originally wanted to be an astronaut. In 2006, Hanks was inducted as an honorary member of the United States Army Rangers Hall of Fame for his realistic portrayal of a Captain in the movie Saving Private Ryan. Hanks is the first actor to receive such an honor. The father of actor Colin Hanks recently became a grandfather with the birth of Olivia Jane Hanks in February this year.
