The two-time Oscar winner also is a governor of the Academy.

Two-time Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks will present at the 83rd Academy Awards ceremony, telecast producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer announced Tuesday.

Hanks, who is a governor of the Academy, won consecutive Oscars in 1993 and 1994 for his leading performances in Philadelphia and Forrest Gump.
At Monday’s Oscar Nominees’ Luncheon, a remarkably youthful-looking Tom Hanks appeared in an entertaining video urging the nominees to be entertaining. "Spontaneity takes preparation," Hanks said. "So memorize something memorable."
