Dead Poets Society: "Other actors considered [for the role of John Keating] were Dustin Hoffman, Tom Hanks and Mickey Rourke." (Wikipedia)

If Robin Williams hadn't been the perfect actor for Keating, I'd say it's a shame Hanks didn't get it.

Oh captain, my captain!

Bit of a drop-off on those first two. Apparently Tom Hanks was in two movies I've never heard of last year.

Yeah, I just caught one of those recent ones on Apple TV which is what made me notice that he'd played a lot of captains.

Technically Forrest Gump is a captain too at a certain point, when he got his own ship called Jenny.

Good point! And Lieutenant Dan even calls him that.

"Well well, Captain Forrest Gump, I had to see this for myself. And I told you if you were ever a shrimp boat captain then I'd be your first mate..."

I guess I'll have to add it :)

His character is the train conductor. I don't think trains have a captain.
