Personal Quote:

Having come up in the era where movies are only movies if they're released in the theater... I don't know if that holds true anymore. I've been involved in some movies that have gone 'direct-to-video,' and that used to not be a good thing, but now it's different. See more »

Trivia:

Collaborated with Meg Ryan in My Mom's New Boyfriend (2008). His father, Tom Hanks, starred with Meg Ryan in 3 movies - Joe Versus the Volcano (1990), Sleepless in Seattle (1993) and You've Got Mail (1998). See more »
