Tom Hanks Hosting Adaptation of O'Reilly Book
Oscar winner will appear onscreen for and narrate 'Killing Lincoln'
Nat Geo President Howard T. Ownes boasts to Deadline that, “Only Hanks can add that unique poise, intrigue and dynamism that are his trademark to a film about one of the most significant, life-changing events in America’s young history.”
"Alas," really? Why "alas"? Oh, such a terrible and tragic turn of events, that Tom Hanks should want to narrate the small-screen adaptation of a best-selling book...
Methinks your politics are showing. People CAN disagree politically and still collaborate on a project. If we based all of our decisions in daily life (what to watch, where to eat, what to read) on the politics of the person providing them to us, what a boring life it would be -- and needlessly conflicted, as well. Oh hey, that actor you like has a new movie out, want to go see it? Sorry, can't, I found out he's on the other side politically. But it's a film about colonizing Mars, what do US politics have to do with it? Don't tempt me with your logic, sir, I must stick to my values and principles of only ever associating with, watching, or listening to people who believe exactly as I do...
Give me a break!!
Well* Tom will be *Black Listed* from making any more Hollywood based movies.
"Alas"? Why? Because a liberal and conservative are working together? And why is the book controversial? I think most of the criticisms leveled against the book had more to do with the author than the content (as you apparently are displaying), and any criticisms have been debunked.
