Tom Hanks selected as FSLC honoree

Black-tie even held April 27 in New York

NEW YORK -- Tom Hanks has been selected as the Film Society of Lincoln Center's 36th Gala Tribute honoree.

The two-time Oscar winner will be feted with the traditional round of film clips and speeches from his colleagues. The black-tie event is set for April 27 at New York's newly renovated Alice Tully Hall.

"There are so few actors who have been able to make the struggle and drama of being a good man compelling," says Kent Jones, who will direct and produce the event with his FSLC colleague Jeanne R. Berney. "In that regard, Tom Hanks now stands alone."

Ticket information will be available in January on
