On July 24, Tom Hanks went to Portland, Oregon to attend the Portland Timbers-Aston Villa soccer game.
Indeed, if you did not know, Tom Hanks has been an Aston Villa (and soccer) fan for over a decade, but had never seen his favorite team play in person. In 2008, Tom Hanks even wore an Aston Villa scarf at the London premiere of Charlie Wilson War.
On Tuesday night, Tom Hanks he mixed and mingled with players, coaches and famous fans on the turf at Jeld-Wen Field before the game. He also performed the ceremonial coin flip.
We have added some photos to the gallery.
You can also watch three videos, including interviews and images from Tom Hanks in the locker room chatting with the players. You can click on each thumbnail to access the respective video.
The quality isn't very good for the AVTV interview, our apologies. But thank you to Avfcedl2k11 who posted it on Youtube.
You can also read an article in which Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert explains what it was like to meet with the actor.

Tom Hanks meets Mia, a little girl fighting Neurofibromatosis

Tom Hanks and the crew working on the movie Captain Phillips took some time off from the set to meet Mia, a little girl who is fighting an incurable disease Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder of the nervous system which causes tumors to grow on a nerve anywhere in the body, at any time.
Mia was so funny and he was so nice. She said "You don't look like Woody". Tom grabbed her shoulder and said "Well, Mia. You got to close your eyes..." Then he started doing lines from Toy Story. It was great. :-)
You can see the photos of Mia meeting Tom Hanks and other actors from the movie on the Facebook page Can Mia get 1,000,000 fans to raise awarness of Neurofibromatosis?
