Hanks may be a Broadway and award show-host newbie, but he's certainly the biggest star on the boards right now, and if the scene outside the Broadhurst is any indication of his massive popularity, a Hanks-hosted affair might give the Tony broadcast a much-needed B-12 shot in the ratings. Plus, Hanks is one of the nicest, most accessible Hollywood stars - he can be seen at the stage door of the Broadhurst signing dozens of Playbills long after the show is over.
