Yep, Tom Hanks never really made it anywhere after 9 seasons of Bosom Buddies.
Aw, c'mon. You've at least got to give Hanks some credit for A Kind of Homecoming. Sure it was a low-budget indie flick, but his portrayal of Michael Collins bringing Apollo 11 home alone after the deaths of Armstrong and Aldrin is simply beautiful. For most of the film, he is the only person seen on-screen. In a fair universe, he would have won or at least have been nominated for an Oscar. Even the real Michael Collins broke over thirty years of being a recluse to comment positively on the film.
