Tom Hanks = Samuel L. Jackson
I noticed it while watching ‘Die Hard With A Vengeance’. It took me a while before I finally saw it: Tom Hanks IS Samuel L. Jackson. And what a performance it is! Unbelievable. But if you watch it again the movie, picturing a Tom Hanks face painted black, you will notice it.
Then Samuel L. Jackson appeared on the ‘Graham Norton Show’ and there was the definite proof for me.
In photo’s and movies they use ‘after effects’ tricks to widen the nose and sometimes alter the ears because they can give away the real identity too soon. On TV guest appearances it is often ‘just’ the makeup.
