Tom Hanks and his son Truman became collaborators during the filming of the new movie “A Man Called Otto.”
The movie sees young Hanks as a younger version of his father in the movie.
During a behind-the-scenes event, Hanks spoke to People about his experience working with his son on the movie.
“Without a doubt, it’s important because, you know, I changed his diapers,” Hanks said. “But you get over it right away because you have to show up, and you have to hit the mark, and you have to do it on time, and you have to be there.”

The actor went on to talk about why Truman was cast in this role.
“I know what it takes, and so does he. It’s a little different when it’s the whole shebang. He was cast for a reason. We’re the same, he’s no stranger, and he knows what pressure is, and he has to do it,” the Oscar-winning actor explained.
Truman also talked about what it was like to work with his father.
“Every time I imitate him, people say, ‘That’s not what he does.’ But I have to let you know the way I get him. Everyone else hears, ‘Houston we have a problem’; “I hear this old, grumpy man fiddling with the DVD player,” Truman said.

While Truman only has two acting credits to his name, one for “World News” in 2020, a movie that also stars Hanks and now “A Man Called Otto,” he is no stranger to the entertainment industry. According to IMDb, Truman has done camera and photography work on many films including “Black Widow” and “West Side Story.”
Hanks recently spoke about the decision to bring his son to the film amid recent discussions about nepotism in Hollywood. The movie stars Hanks and is also produced by his wife, Rita Wilson.
“The thing that doesn’t change, no matter what happens – no matter who it is, your last name – is whether it works or not … something is, there is a beginning, a middle or an end. It doesn’t matter what our last names are,” Hanks told The Sun.

“This is what we’ve been doing forever, it’s what all our kids have grown up with. We have four kids, they’re all very creative,” Hanks said.
“A Man Called Otto” will be released on January 13, 2023.
