Neil Peart and Tom Hanks: Separated at Birth?
In the Way Too Much Time on Our Hands department . . .
We at Rush Vault ask the question that’s been on everyone’s mind for, like, forever:
We’re Neil Peart and Tom Hanks separated at birth?
Hanks was born in Concord, Calif., in 1956, and Neil was born in Port Dalhousie, Ontario, in 1952. But if you consider that Ontario, Calif. is only 365 miles from Concord, Calif., you can see how . . .
Hanks once described himself as someone “who liked to make a lot of noise” when he was growing up, and that’s why he went into acting. But you have to wonder if some of that preference for noisemaking didn’t also get channeled in other ways, such as “drumming on various objects around the house with a pair of chopsticks,” which is how Neil has described his early years.
We think the facts speak for themselves, but let us know your view. Take the poll:
