I love a good biopic movie but I saw the leaked photos of Tom Hanks as Walt Disney for the new movie Saving Mr Banks released Jan ’14 and just wowed. Usually I have to be content knowing that the actor playing the character will look nothing like the actual person but lately I wanted to commend the make-up artists, hairdressers and casting agents for their selections; Michelle Williams as Marilyn, soon to be Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs and now Tom as Walt. I will admit however the best look-a-like was James Franco as James Dean…but that may be because I have a soft spot for both!
I’m very excited for this movie as I’m a huge Disney fan. The movie follows the struggle Walt had with getting P.L Travers to sell the rights to his book Mary Poppins as well as DvD’s struggle with an english accent.
