Tom Hanks is in his fourth decade of being a national treasure. And when you're around that long, you find yourself with a lot of very different parts — as in hair parts. From the rich, dark curls of his younger days to the short, hairline-showcasing look of today and all the weird beardy and shoulder-length ones in between, Hanks can make any cut look iconic. On the occasion of the Friday release of his new movie, Captain Phillips (short hair with a bonus goatee), this quiz tests how familiar you are with all of his past movie looks. Sure, anybody can pick out his Cast Away mane, but can you tell his You've Got Mail hair from his Sleepless in Seattle locks? This gets tricky!
