Storyline

When Tom Hanks was cast as Forrest Gump, he did not have a clear idea of how the character would speak. Zemeckis and Hanks knew that the task was not "just speaking his lines with a southern accent," and they researched many regional dialects. Yet as the first day of shooting drew near, Gump's screen identity was still uncertain. After a series of open casting sessions were held in the South, an 8 year old with no prior acting experience was cast as Young Forrest Gump. Hanks met with the boy Michael Conner Humphreys, and within seconds, discovered that Michael's natural voice could be Forrest's. Written by Kim Aubry
