The two-time Os­car-win­ning ac­tor has long said he is a fan of the Birm­ing­ham club.

As­ton Villa beat Le­ices­ter last Tues­day to reach the fi­nal, where they will face hold­ers and red-hot favourites Manch­ester City at Wem­b­ley on 1 March.

Hanks will turn his fo­cus back to films next week­end, when he will be hop­ing to win a third Academy Award. – AFP
