I did a spot with Tom Hanks for the World War II Veteran’s Memorial. It helped raise enough money to complete the project. We shot on a beach that was supposed to suggest Normandy. The only suggestion I gave him was to walk along and do the dialogue instead of just standing there.
‘You want me to walk?’
‘…and you want me to talk?’
‘Walk and talk, I can do that.’
And he did. He was good, too.
