“Groundhog Day,” starring…Tom Hanks??

Last night at a Q-and-A at the AMC River East in Chicago, Harold Ramis revealed that Tom Hanks was his original choice to star in “Groundhog Day.” Hanks later told Ramis it worked much better with Bill Murray as the lead, because “Audiences would have been sitting there waiting for me to become nice, because I always play nice. But Bill’s such a miserable S.O.B. on and off screen, you didn’t know what was going to happen.”
