HANKS FELT THAT THE PLANE CRASH WAS THE ďBEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENEDĒ TO CHUCK.
In the same audio interview, Hanks discussed Noland post-ordeal and him standing at the fork of the road in Texas. ďSomehow, at the end of the movie, you can stand on the crossroads and itís going to be okay, itís going to be alright, as long as you keep breathing and have a certain kind of perspective and proportion to your life. And thatís not a huge shift for Chuck to have gone through even if he hadnít been lost. People do that all time. ĎI quit, I donít want to do this job anymore, Iím gonna go figure out what I want to do and Iím going to be okay.í Thatís interesting. Itís almost as though Chuck can say the best thing that ever happened to him was, ĎI was in this plane crash in which five people got killed and I survived for four years and I came back and I lost the woman I love.íĒ
