LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Tom Hanks has posted a personal video on his MySpace profile to show his support for all-electric cars and to connect with his fans.

Hanks, who starred in "Philadelphia," "Castaway" and "Saving Private Ryan," discusses the benefits of the all-electric vehicle from looks to charging to mileage, MySpace said in a statement Tuesday.

The electric car Hanks drives was originally created from a Scion XB and is called "Ebox."

Part two of the video will also be posted on MySpace in the near future.
