A medical school dropout and a housewife/mom try to make it as stand-up comedians. They become friends and help each other out at an NYC comedy club.
Tom Hanks was cast in the role of Steven Gold, the medical school student and aspiring comic. Hanks had proven himself to be a tremendously talented and versatile actor at a relatively young age. David Seltzer said: "I really wanted Tom from the outset and when we heard he was interested, we didn't even consider anyone else. Tom has the quick-wittedness and unpredictability that is believable in all facets of this role, and, like Sally (Field), he has a vulnerability that makes for a truly interesting human being".
Please, sweetheart... just a sandwich?
When Sally Field comes home with a new haircut, she covers her face with a paper napkin. In varying scenes, she has it covered in different ways, and in some she does not have the napkin at all.
The versatile comedic actor has his summer movie plans set but still has a little catching up to do when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
