Tim McGraw On His Friend Tom Hanks And His ‘Incredible’ ‘1883’ Scene
Both Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have made appearances on Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s new Paramount Plus TV series “1883,” and as Tim shared, he and the Hanks’ have been friends for many years.
McGraw said, “It was pretty spectacular for Tom Hanks to show up and do the scene. We’ve been friends for such a long time. We’re family friends forever. Our kids are friends, Faith and Rita are best friends, and so to ask him to do this scene and he says, ‘Sure, I’ll be there. Tell me when,’ was just so incredible.”
He added, “To me, it was one of the most moving scenes in the show. And it starts with an original picture from the battleground scene. You find out that I was a Captain in the Civil War, and I had a lot of PTSD from that. No matter how good of friends you are and how well you know someone, when you’re sitting there in a scene that’s that emotional and you see Tom Hanks walk-up in a Union uniform, and look at you and say, ‘Captain.’ And then he just sat beside me, and he puts his hand on my shoulder, and he goes, ‘I know.’ I just fell apart. That’s somebody that knows what they’re doin’. He was just really good.”
Tim posted the latest promo of his new show to his Instagram. He wrote, “The stakes are high, and there’s still a long way to go…. New episode of #1883 streaming now on @paramountplus
