Following his father's famous footsteps into a film career, Hanks made his film debut in That Thing You Do, directed by Tom Hanks. From there, he's gone onto appear in many movies of varying levels of success, including Orange County, The House Bunny, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, The Great Buck Howard, and Peter Jackson's 2005 remake of the 1933 adventure classic King Kong.
Hanks has had a roughly equivalent or even greater level of success in the world of TV, first appearing on the TV drama Roswell before moving onto regular or starring roles on Mad Men and the short lived FOX action/comedy The Good Guys. Hanks also has directorial ambitions, currently preparing a documentary on Tower Records which he plans to eventually direct. Coming up on his docket as an actor are a regular role on Dexter, and a starring role in a movie entitled Lucky, also starring Jeffrey Tambor and Ann-Margaret.
