While promoting his new novel, Tom Hanks weighed in on the strike. "The entire industry is at a crossroads, and everybody knows it. [...] And there is some degree of pie here that is going to have to be equitably distributed by the people who are responsible for the content – not the folks who make the deals for the content, the folks who actually make it. And first up is the writers. We do not have scripts without writers." Next, he says, are the directors and actors. "We do not have filmed stories without directors [...] So there is going to have to be some sit-down. And for the common good of the arts and sciences, and the business of show, like minds are going to have to come down and be equitable, and believe it or not, some type of win-win situation.”
