Oh, Tommy boy! You POOR guy!
First, the supposedly-epic Cloud Atlas gets absolutely no award season love and, now, your brand new Broadway play might be D.O.A!
Tom Hanks' Lucky Guy doesn't open for another few months, but early sales figures are verging on the mediocre!
One would think a stageplay written by the late Nora Ephron and featuring one of Hollywood's most legendary actors would be a surefire success!
Unfortunately, while screen stars like Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman once smashed Broadway's box-offices, the novelty is evidently wearing off.
Need proof? Just look to the abysmally received Katie Holmes' dramz, Dead Accounts!
Even worse, some suggest the man who played Forrest Gump is yesterday's news! Noooo! Blasphemy!
Lucky Guy doesn't debut until March, so there's plenty of time to turn around those pre-sale numbers!
We can only assume he's playing a dashing young John F. Kennedy… or at least one of his equally handsome brothers!
Our imaginary boyfriend Zac Efron has signed on to a brand new JFK movie called Parkland, which focuses on the events that occured at the Parkland hospital in Dallas the day JFK got shot.
The flick also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton and Jacki Weaver!
Parkland will be written and directed by journalist/novelist Peter Landesman and is being produced by Tom Hanks' company, Playtone.
It's so exciting to witness Zac's transition from tween musical heartthrob to legit, oscar-track film actor, and we must say…
You still look MIGHTY sexy when you're being oh so serious, Zac!

Erraybody LOVES Tom Hanks!
Of course, that could always change.
The actor is a worried that his rep as coolest man on the planet will vaporize like Maleficent's body at the end of Sleeping Beauty after people see him play Walt Disney in the upcoming film, Saving Mr. Banks.
Tom revealed his reservations Tuesday night at the premiere of American Master: Inventing David Geffen, telling reporters:
Tom Hanks is doing the House of Mouse proud!!
Mr. Hanks may let the occasional swear slip out on live TV, but at least he doesn't let his adult language effect his portrayal of Walt Disney, the master of childhood fantasy!
In fact, it seems Tom embodies the fun, Goofy (ha!) Mr. Disney PERFECTLY in the latest on-set snap from the Disney bio-flick, Saving Mr. Banks (above)!
Looking snazzy in those 1920's duds, Tom! Now you just need some black, round ears to complete the outfit…

The cast of Tom Hank's newest flick, Saving Mr. Banks, is currently filming at Disneyland.
Which means… the guests in the theme park are the very first to see Tommy dressed in costume as his character, Walt Disney!
One sneaky little Mouseketeer snapped a pick as of Tom/Walt (above) walking down Main Street. He looks exactly like the Man behind the Mouse, doesn't he??
While we're thrilled to see Tom look all magical, we're sure many of Tuesday and Wednesday's park-goers are less than thrilled with the Mr. Hanks intrusion. Numerous rides and attractions, including Main Street, Main Street Vehicles, Carnation Cafe, Plaza Inn, Sleeping Beauty Castle, Fantasyland, and Astro Orbitor, were closed down for the day. BUT, on the plus side, they got to see many parts of the park done-up all 1960s style!
Ch-ch-check out pics of the vintage flower carts, and retro extras (below)!

Even with the release of the much-anticipated Cloud Atlas, it seems that Ben Affleck's latest directorial effort, Argo, was able to find its way to the top of the weekend box office!
While the ambitious Tom Hanks flick landed third with $9.4 million, putting it behind the still-making-bank Hotel Transylvania with $9.5, it still fared better than Gerard Butler's surf flick Chasing Mavericks, which didn't even break the top ten with $2.2 million, and Chelsea Handler and Victoria Justice's new comedy Fun Size, which just made it into the 10 spot with $4.1 million!
Not surprisingly, in honor of Hallowee-kend, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D also managed to debut to some SPOOKY SCARES, making it to five with $8 million!
We'll see if it can hold its momentum next weekend once the holiday passes, though!
Check out the full box office top ten this weekend…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
