Los Angeles, Feb 25 (IANS) He may have won an Oscar for his role in "Philadelphia", but Tom Hanks is nervous about his Broadway debut.

The 56-year-old will be seen playing award-winning columnist Mike McAlary in Nora Ephron's "Lucky Guy".

"We're (the cast and I are) just resorting to imagining the headlines for bad reviews - 'Lucky Guy, Unlucky Audience!' 'Yucky Guy!' I'm not afraid of the end result because I think we'll have a very good production," quoted Hanks as saying.

"But I am afraid of blowing it myself. I'm afraid of having something being my responsibility, yet not having the wherewithal or lack of self-consciousness or stamina to pull it off," he added.

The show begins March 1.
