Tom Hanks' Birthday: Actor Turns 57 Today

Posted: Updated:

The award-winning actor Tom Hanks turns 57 today. But he shows no sign of slowing down.

Hanks made his acting debut in 1980, in the low-budget thriller "He Knows You're Alone." Since then, he's played everything from a soldier to a doctor to a cartoon cowboy. Oh, and he also produces, writes and directs. Tom-of-all-trades, you might say.

Hanks has at least three movies set to debut in 2013, including "Saving Mr. Banks" and "Captain Phillips."

Let's hope he doesn't find himself stranded with a volleyball again this year.
