Lincoln Center honors in 2009 go to Tom Hanks

tom_hanks_1.jpgThe Film Society of Lincoln Center has chosen to honor two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, 57, at its 36th annual gala on April 27 in New York. “There are so few actors who have been able to make the struggle and drama of being a good man compelling,” Kent Jones, the society’s associate director of programming, told AP. “With his talent, his presence, his versatility, his sense of humor, he has set a very high standard for his fellow actors.” Last year’s honoree was fellow two-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep. Tickets will be available online in January.
