January 29, 1999

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Tom Hanks will have one of the hottest seats in town to watch the Lakers, Clippers and Kings when their new stadium opens.

The star has leased a 12-seat luxury suite at Staples Center for $257,500 a year, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

Hanks will have a wet bar, refrigerator and entertainment center with a wide-screen digital television and two monitors with feeds to NHL and NBA games.

Hanks, who starred in ``You’ve Got Mail″ and ``Saving Private Ryan,″ is the third celebrity to reserve one of the 160 suites. He’s joined by game-show host Pat Sajak and Kings defenseman Rob Blake, who negotiated the lease in his contract, the Times said.

The stadium is scheduled to open in October.
