Los Angeles: 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," nytimes.com 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.
