Acting and Casting 

I cannot think if an actor except Tom Hanks for this role, Forrest Gump. Because he is the most suitable actor for the role and he had that capacity to enroll in the character and perform out the real expressions and emotions through the performance. The each and every actor of the movie was spot on. And they had done their performances very well as natural. And it is a important point to be relaxed and be naturalistic in a performance. Every actor cannot do that, but in this special movie the actors were legendary, and more memorable. All the credit goes to the actors. The casting director of the movie is "Ellen Lewis" who has won 2 awards and nominated for 24 awards.
