Tom Hanks as a homosexual inflicted with AIDS in the movie “Philadelphia” in 1993. As second in command in a submarine in “Crimson Tide” in 1995, he made a great confrontation with
Gene Hackman as they clashes with the enemy’s submarine. Playing the role of Rubin Carter is quite a challenge for him. The character was charge triple murder and convinced us that he had suffered enough inside jail for 30 years in the movie “The Hurricane” in 1999.

He made a great deal of entanglement with
Russell Crowe as the criminal and mobster Frank Lucas in the 2007 movie “American Gangster.
