Tom Hanks UK “Larry” premiere light on star power


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Tom Hanks is hitting the publicity trail for his second directorial effort “Larry Crowne,” which will be in U.S. theaters on July 1. The PR push began with a film premiere in London, however, where the two-time Oscar winner found himself in need of some A-list company.

Hanks, who stars as a downsized corporate exec forced to go back to school, found himself “surrounded by reality stars and glamour models” on the British red carpet, the Daily Mail reports, adding that the actor-director “probably wish[ed] he had his co-star Julia Roberts by his side to add a little more star power to the event.”

In all honesty, I wonder why Roberts wasn’t there. This was, by all accounts, the world premiere of the film, and London events tend to draw elite celebs. Granted, Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood and “Baywatch” frontman David Hasselhoff were in attendance … well, never mind. That doesn’t really help.

The L.A. premiere for “Larry Crowne” reportedly is set up for June 27 in L.A., and I’m guessing that’s better attended. But for Hanks’ anticipated new film, this seems like a strange, low-wattage turn out.
