Adam Schlesinger, Tom Hanks and That Thing You Do?

A toilet-paper scene from
'That Thing You Do'
Fountains of Wayne star dead at 52 from coronavirus complications
Born on Halloween and passes away on April 1st?
Tom Hanks meeting in a Chinese restaurant
 in 'That Thing You Do'?! 
Didn't Charlize present Tom with this?
I wrote about Tom Hanks being like a real-life Forrest Gump in a recent post, as he just seems to be involved in all the major news stories I see lately -
Tom Hanks and the Little BIG House Synch/Sink?
I saw the passing of Adam Schlesinger from the Covid 19 virus in the news and wondered what movies he had worked on in his career, and sure enough, he was involved in the movie that Tom Hanks wrote, directed and starred in.
I've never watched 'That Thing You Do' before, but the trailer was enough for me to think WTF(?) when I saw toilet paper rolls blowing in the wind from a bus window, Tom Hanks meeting in a Chinese restaurant, and then to cap it all off to tell the band that they look good in black suits -
Star Wars Actor Andrew Jack Dies Aged 76 of Corona-virus?
Andrew Jack was dialect coach on this movie
I know Tom Hanks wasn't in the MIB movie, but Emma Thompson was, and according to the trailer she looked good in a black suit ... and maybe a black umbrella wouldn't have gone astray, either?-)
What is it with Green Eyes and Umbrellas?
I don't know how you do it Tom, but when there is a major news story you're there like Forrest Gump with a box of chocolates.
