A clip from an early TV Movie starring a young Tom Hanks, in which his fascination with Role-Playing Games leads him down the toboggan ride to insanity. One thing you’ll notice here is that, while the material is the worst sort of sensationalist panic-mongering, Hanks is actually pretty damned good even in this early performance. He’s a great guy and this is not meant to make fun of him. However, seeing a respected actor perform truly laughable material is always good for a chuckle. One viewing and you’ll quickly see that his Oscars for “Philadelphia” and “Forrest Gump” were just to make up for how this performance was shamefully overlooked.
