Every time you do that thing you do

album-of-the-week:

In That Thing You Do!, Tom Hanks was adamant about the actors playing The Wonders being able to play the songs in the film. “The whole philosophy of what we were doing was that we are going to make this in sync. If we’re showing you on screen, and your hand is playing an F sharp natural or a barred A chord, that’s what we’re going to hear.”

None of The Wonders, played by Tom Everett Scott, Johnathon Schaech, Steve Zahn and Ethan Embry, knew how to play their instruments. As soon as the songs were written and decided, each actor was given a private music tutor to teach them how to play their instruments. They practiced five hours a day for six weeks before anything was filmed. Steve Zahn, who played the guitarist, Lenny, said “We really progressed. We got to a level to where we were definitely a band… We are a band!”
