Tom Hanks is usually brilliant in everything he is in, which is why he’s part of many classic movies in this article alone. However, that was put to the test when he essentially had to act alone for at least 90% of Cast Away. In this movie, Hanks plays Chuck Noland, a FedEx Troubleshooter. During a flight, his plane went down and resulted in Noland being the only survivor. He would end up on an uninhabited island in the South Pacific. He has to survive isolated, while also trying to find ways to be rescued or save himself.
