ABC, Touchstone retain Scott for series in fall '03

7 October 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Tom Everett Scott, who starred on ABC's legal drama Philly last season, is returning to the ABC fold in a talent deal with the network and sister studio Touchstone Television to topline a series project, most likely a comedy. Under the pact, the studio and the network will develop projects targeted for fall 2003 as potential starring vehicles for Scott. He is doing a multiepisode arc on NBC's hit drama ER, playing Eric Wyczenski, brother of nurse Abby Lockhart (Maura Tierney). Scott's TV credits also include Darren Star's short-lived Wall Street drama The $treet, the hit comedy Grace Under Fire and the telefilm Inherit the Wind. On the features side, Scott has starred in such movies as the Tom Hanks-directed That Thing You Do! An American Werewolf in Paris, Dead Man on Campus and Boiler Room. Scott is repped by the Gersh Agency and Anonymous Content. »

Hanks Quits Directing

18 September 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar winning star Tom Hanks is hanging up his clapboard for good - after deciding his future lies in front of the camera. The Road To Perdition star has taken a few breaks from his glittering acting career to direct movie That Thing You Do and TV hit Band Of Brothers. However, Hanks says he can't see himself finding the time to make more movies because he wants to put his family first. He explains, "It takes a substantial amount out of you. I'm still in my child rearing years and I'd like to be around a little bit more - not only physically but also mentally for my family. If you're directing a movie, you're never there. You're always thinking about what you've got to do. As soon as you say you're gonna direct a motion picture the risks just keep piling up. It just goes on and on and on and never lets up until the movie comes out. The stuff of your worst nightmares, you know." »
