Tom Hanks has been a big KPCC supporter for years, and gladly agreed to attend a KPCC donor event on the West Side this week to show his love of the station. He also agreed to let me interview him at the event. The only thing we kept off-limits -- in a wide ranging interview about World War Two, Abe Lincoln, "Philadelphia," and the extent to which KPCC invades his checkbook -- were the shooting locations for his upcoming movie, "Larry Crowne," starring Hanks and featuring another KPCC supporter, George Takei.
