In this "Skinny," I discuss doing "concepts" or "takes" on Shakespeare:
A few months ago, some friends of mine pointed something out about America’s Everyman, Tom Hanks, that caused the synapses in my brain to dramatically rearrange, and my life has never been the same since.
What they pointed out is that he’s actually a total jerk. Just a total charmless sack of arrogance.
I know what you’re thinking. How could America’s Dad be a jerk? (Then again, if it were true, it would kind of explain a lot about America right now, right?)
