Hollywood heavyweight Tom Hanks is getting ready to make his Broadway debut next April in a new production that was penned by Nora Ephron, who just recently passed away. ‘Lucky Guy’ is the story of late tabloid journalist Mike McAlary, the Pulitzer Prize winner who covered the Abner Louima scandal for the New York Daily News back in 1998. Hanks will star as the journalist when the play opens April 1st at the Broadhurst Theatre for a limited run under the direction of George C. Wolfe. This will not be the first Ephron story for Hanks who starred in two widely successful movies written by the late screen writer. Hanks starred aside Meg Ryan in the classics ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ and ‘You’ve Got Mail,’ two of Ephron’s most popular works. While this is the first appearance on Broadway for Hanks, he and his family are no strangers to the stage. His son Colin Hanks appeared in ’33 Variations’ on Broadway back in 2009 and both Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, are both active with the Shakespeare Center in Los Angeles.
