Hank you, Tom! Hank you very much!

In some Big news, Tom Hanks recently dethroned Kim Kardashian as the ruler of the iTunes App store!

Sorry, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood! There's a new A-Lister in town!

His new app, Hanx Writer, which basically converts your iPad into an old time typewriter, is the ultimate throwback! You get to punch the keys because you're the man now, dog!

When we think of America, we think of Tom and typewriters. Maybe a hot dog. But mostly Tom Hanks and typewriters.

You get to fully experience the retro feeling of the clanging and hammering of a typewriter, with the modern ability to print, save, and send out your work!

And you can use an onscreen keyboard, or your Bluetooth keyboard!

We can't wait to start typing away!

You've Got Rumor Confirmation! Meg Ryan & Tom Hanks Are Set To Reunite On The Big Screen!

| Filed under: Film FlickersTom HanksMeg RyanGIFs

meg ryan tom hanks reunion movie directing

Well, it's only for a brief period of time, but a reunion is a reunion, right?

It's been over 10 YEARS since we last saw Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan together on the big screen and they are long overdue for a movie collab!

The last film they did together was You've Got Mail back in 1998! Can you believe it's been that long?!

A source has confirmed that the Captain Phillips star is locked in for a cameo in Meg's new film, Ithaca.

No word yet if the two will be interacting with each other at all on camera, but we're sure there will be some walks down memory lane behind the lens!

In addition to acting, the When Harry Met Sally star will be stepping behind the camera for the first time, while Tom will also be an executive producer on the film.

We're sure the former co-stars have kept in touch over the years, but it'll be exciting for fans to see the actors working together again!

The it on-screen couple from the '90s is back!!
