Hanks. 
4/5 in favor of Hanks. But I think IMDb users may have different interests than poll board. Just a thought though.

Hi Dibby, may I suggest one little edit to the intro?

Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks: between these two versatile and talented actors who is your favorite?

There a lot of other actors named Tom but I agree that these two are in a different league. Some may argue for Tom Hardy, though, for example, so perhaps add a bit to the intro that set these two apart and highlight they're similarities? 'A few ideas: they both started their careers in the 1980s, became stars during that same decade, and they both have been nominated for multiple Oscars and Golden Globes (Hanks with multiple wins for both and Cruise with multiple Golden Globe wins).

I'd certainly imagine they are also the two biggest box-office earners (of "Toms") but you know a lot more about that than I do.

I suggested this poll on March 31, 2015...during the time of IMDb Message Board.

So, it took 1,389 days to get finally selected.

A message to new IMDb Poll Authors: Keep patience. Once you have suggested a poll (which is not violating IMDb Poll policies and not a duplicate suggestion), it'll be published...but no one (including IMDb Poll Admins - D. P. S. G.) can tell when. Poll Admins are working hard and there are thousands of poll suggestions. And most importantly IMDb can not (or should I say will not) publish more than 3/4 polls daily.

These factors you have to keep in mind.
