The 'Forrest Gump' Gang Reunited & We Wish They Could Remake These 7 Films
Well if this can’t make you feel better about the current status of Planet Earth, I don’t know what will. Forrest Gump co-stars (whom I will now be referring to as the Gump Gang), Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise, and Mykelti Williamson reunited Thursday night for a fundraiser held by the Gary Sinise Foundation. Hanks posted the photo of the Gump Gang with the caption, “Hadn’t seen these old friends for too long.” I couldn’t agree more, Mr. Hanks.
And if that doesn’t make your heart melt enough, The Gary Sinise Foundation supports America’s veterans, defenders, first responders and their families through innovative outreach. The Foundation helps build specially designed homes for injured vets, produces morale-boosting concerts for soldiers abroad and at home, holds community-building events for those who have suffered a loss due to warfare, and much, much more.
After seeing the fellas looking ever so dapper and barely aged in the 20 years it’s been since Forrest Gump, it had me wondering why these three don't team up more often. Their chemistry on and off screen is palpable.
Come to think of it, there are about a bajillion movies over the past 20 years that would be vastly improved by the Gump Gang. I’ve narrowed it down to seven.
