Actor Tom Hanks and director Rob Reiner are supporting City Council Speaker Christine Quinn for mayor.
The two-time Oscar winner for best actor donated $500 to Quinn on June 21, and the When Harry Met Sally director gave her twice that amount on June 13, according to the most recent campaign report filed by Quinn's 2013 campaign committee. Lorraine Bracco, who played Dr. Melfi on "The Sopranos," gave $2,500.
According to a Quinn campaign source, When Harry Met Sally happens to be one of Quinn’s favorite movies, and A League of Their Own, in which Hanks played a loveably grumpy coach in a woman’s baseball league, is another. One of the women who played in the real-life women's baseball league attended the same church as Quinn when she was growing up on Long Island, according to the source.
Also in Quinn's six-month campaign filing: $250 from Nick Denton, the founder and owner of Gawker Media.
