Tom Hanks, the Oscar-winning actor and star of Saving Private Ryan, Big, Cast Away, and many other modern classics, will be honored at this year’s MoMA Film Benefit, which will be held in New York this November. Past honorees include Quentin Tarantino, Tilda Swinton, Tim Burton, and Kathryn Bigelow.
“Tom Hanks is a true force in cinema,” said Rajendra Roy, the Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film at MoMA, in a press release. “His work as an actor has brought him both movie stardom and the deep respect of his peers. Together with his work behind the camera as a writer, director, and especially a producer, he has been an essential figure in American storytelling for more than 35 years. We are thrilled to honor him this year.”
For those unable to pay for a $75,000 table at the benefit, there will be series of his works screened at MoMA’s Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters from November 8 to 14.
For those uninterested in that, here’s the opening credits to Bosom Buddies.
