His name and superstar pedigree promised Colin Hanks a career unlike most other talented young up-and-comers, saddled with both the pressures and the privileges of being the eldest son of internationally famous film star Tom Hanks. A lanky boy-next-door, Hanks first appeared on cultural radars as a friend to the adolescent aliens on the hit show "Roswell" (The WB, 1999-2001; UPN, 2001-02), and cut his teeth in a series of teen movies, as well as in his father's "Band of Brothers" (HBO, 2001) miniseries. His starring turn in the comedy "Orange County" (2002) may have been overshadowed by Jack Black's onscreen antics, but Hanks continued to work, notching appearances in Peter Jackson's "King Kong" (2005), "Untraceable" (2008) with Diane Lane and in "The House Bunny" (2008) as Anna Faris's understanding boyfriend, as well as TV roles on "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007- ) as a priest and a co-starring role with Bradley Whitford in "The Good Guys" (FOX, 2010- ). While he might never fully emerged from his father's considerable shadow, Hanks seemed determined to make his own impact on his own terms.
