Tom Hanks is easily one of the most prolific and accredited actors working today. In Steven Spielberg’s The Post, he embodies the role of Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, a man hell bent on uncovering a massive government lie that spanned three decades and four Presidents.
20th Century Fox has just released a short feature that highlights Hanks’ fascinating performance. Interviews with the director and cast shine a light on the intensity and dedication required for such a role, not to mention the timelines of the film’s central story.
The Post expands nationwide on January 12th and co-stars Meryl Streep and Bob Odenkirk.
