Captain ‘Sully’ Sullenberger Stars in Hanks, a Perfectly Likely Tale of Hollywood Triumph

By

Even a national hero can’t resist the lure of a Hollywood payday. Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, best known for miraculously navigating a failing plane to safety in the Hudson River, has decided to give acting a try. The trailer for his breakthrough effort, the biopic Hanks, debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday. Hanks centers around Sullenberger as Hollywood actor Tom Hanks, who overcame ... not all that much to become a very well-regarded and famous performer. Peter Scolari co-stars as Peter Scolari. Of course, if Sullenberger had actually been the one to star in Cast Away, boy, might that have gone differently.
