Alan Alda receiving SAG honor from Hanks

One of America's sweethearts hands the torch to another when Tom Hanks presents Alan Alda with a lifetime achievement award at the upcoming Screen Actors Guild Award ceremony Jan. 27.

The 82-year-old Alda, a Golden Globe- and Emmy-winner, will become the 55th recipient of the annual award given to an actor who fosters the "finest ideals of the acting profession."

Alda and Hanks worked together on the film "Bridge of Spies," and Alda said they "have run into each other casually over the years at awards ceremonies and on airplanes and things like that."

Throughout a career that has spanned seven decades, Alda is perhaps best known for his role as Hawkeye Pierce in the television series ""M*A*S*H." Alda has won six Emmy Awards and was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 2004 for his role in "The Aviator."

Alda has also been involved in numerous charities and organizations that have supported children's causes, women's issues and the sciences.
