Where are they now: The kid from Forrest Gump

Michael Conner Humphries as Forrest Gump
Michael Conner Humphries was eight years old when he played a young Tom Hanks in the 1994 film Forrest Gump.

Hanks patterned his accent on the young lad's own thick Southern drawl – yep, this kid actually spoke like Forrest Gump.

So where is he now?

Michael joined the US Army when he grew up - just like Forrest (only he didn't get sent to the 'Nam)!

He's still doing the odd acting job though, and he recently appeared in the WWII film Pathfinders: In the Company of Strangers.
