Flu Drugs Helped Hanks Ace Broadway Audition

Actor COLIN HANKS is stunned he landed a role on Broadway alongside movie great JANE FONDA, because he was so drugged up on flu medication during the audition, he couldn't stand up.
The 31-year-old son of Hollywood star Tom Hanks has no idea how he impressed theatre bosses, because he can barely remember the nightmare audition for 33 Variations.
Hanks, who opens the show in Manhattan on Monday (09Mar09), tells the New York Post, "I honestly don't remember much of the audition at all. The only moment I really recall was that the director had given me some sort of note and I did the scene sitting down because I was too weak to stand up. I remember going over to the director and literally having no clue if I'd done it right, because I couldn't remember what he'd asked me to do."
