Popular actor makes debut as director with That Thing You Do!' By BETSY PICKLE Scripps Howard News Service Audiences and critics have loved that thing Tom Hanks does, pretty consistently since "Big." Now the actor is watching as audiences enjoy "That Thing You Do!," his writing and directing debut. For Hanks, film school has been working with such directors as Ron Howard on "Apollo 13" and "Splash," Robert Zemeckis on "Forrest Gump," Jonathan Demme on "Philadelphia," Penny Marshall on "Big" and "A League of Their Own" and Garry Marshall on "Nothing in Common." Having survived "That Thing You Do!," how does he evaluate his own style as a director? "It's unlike any that I've worked with," Hanks said. "It had to be the case. I could not do an imitation of Bob Zemeckis because I can't visualize like Bob Zemeckis does. "Ron Howard is far too chipper in the course of making a movie; I don't think I had the wherewithal to shoot as much as Ron does. "I figured out very quickly in the process that I was just gonna have to figure it out myself." Set in 1964, "That Thing You Do!" is the sweet, funny story of a rock band in Erie, Pa., that stumbles into stardom after its drummer breaks his arm and is replaced by Guy Patterson (Tom Everett Scott). The Oneders — later renamed the Wonders — catch the ear of a record executive, Mr. White (Hanks), with their single, "That Thing You Do," and he signs them to a recording contract. Guy, singer-songwriter-guitarist Jimmy (Johnathon Schaech) and his muse-girlfriend, Faye (Liv Tyler), guitarist Lenny (Steve Zahn) and the Bass Player (Ethan Embry) are launched on a meteoric journey that takes theni up the record charts and all the way to Hollywood. Hanks, 40, said he'd had the idea for the movie for several years before he got around to doing something about it. While he has no credentials as a musician himself, he had strong feelings about rock 'n' roll going back to his childhood. Brinkley to leave ABC's'This Week' By The New York Times David Brinkley, the longtime anchor of the ABC News Sunday morning program "This Week," will leave that position Nov. 10, ABC announced Wednesday. While he will continue to provide a weekly commentary, Brinkley, 76, will relinquish his duties as news anchor and host of the program's discussion with newsmakers. ABC did not announce a replacement, but executives said that two of the show's panelists, Sam Donaldson and Cokie . Roberts, would share the duties as host after Brinkley's departure. ABC juggles its struggling Saturday night lineup By The Associated Press NEW YORK — ABC is benching "Coach" and two other members of its struggling Saturday night lineup in the network's first shakeup of the fall television season. "Coach," the sitcom starring Craig Nelson as coach of the fictional Orlando Breakers, will be off the air indefinitely after two episodes are broadcast Saturday. "Second Noah" and "Common Law" will have their last Saturday night broadcasts this week. "Second Noah" premiered in February while "Common Law," about a lawyer with a blue-collar background, was new this fall. "Coach" finished 75th, "Second RE-ELECT Deena HORST Friday Oct. 26,10:30 AM -12:30 PM Call for Free Tlcket(s) 825-6273 comer of South & Clark, Salina State Representative 69th District Noah" was 79th, and "Common Law" ranked 84th among 103 measured shows last week, according to Nielsen Media Research. Movies, figure skating, football and "America's Funniest Home Videos" will fill the Saturday night void through early December until ABC announces a new schedule. Children of the World Authentically Clothed Smnltvrlill M U S E U H Gift Store 211 West Iron Tues.-Frl. 12-5 & Sat. 10-5 Sun. 1-5 • The Associated Press Tom Hanks says directing was a learning experience. "I think the drums are the most important aspect of any rock band," said Hanks, who sat riveted to "The Ed Sullivan Show" during performances by the Beatles and the Dave Clark 5. "The guitars are great, no question about that, but for me, it's always been the drums." The springboard for his plot was "the idea of what in fact happened to the Beatles. They changed drummers — it's not called John, Paul, George and Pete (Best); it's John, Paul, George and Ringo — and you can't help but think two things: "No. 1, is Ringo the reason that the Beatles became the Beatles? And No. 2 is, poor Pete! And that right there puts it into, like, this kind of human spin that has absolutely nothing to do with the music, which was utterly fascinating." After he finished the script, he asked friends for their evaluations. "I sent it to almost everybody that I had worked with in a creative capacity of late and asked for both reactions and suggestions," said Hanks, who also co-wrote several of the film's songs. "I got it kind of all across the board. "There are some people who said, 'You know what? This is good. You've got stuff to figure out, but you'll figure it out, so just go.' But there were other people that gave me i3 pages of single- spaced notes, about character motivations and conflicts and things like that. "And you kinda like put 'em all together, and you read them all, and you take some stuff into consideration. Sometimes you find yourself defending the material, and other times you think, 'He's absolutely right. I've gotta change that.'
