During auditions for That Thing You Do! (1996), Tom Hanks was opposed to hiring Tom (Everett Scott), because of the the fact that Scott could've passed for Hanks 15 years ago. It wasn't until Hanks' wife Rita Wilson saw the audition tape, and decided he was cute, so, Hanks decided to risk hiring Scott.
