Watch: Tom Hanks & James Corden Recreate Every Tom Hanks Movie
For those who didn't know, British comedy star James Corden (who you may recognize from Into the Woods or Begin Again) took over "The Late Late Show" from Craig Ferguson and his first official show was last night. It's quite a big responsibility, especially when you're following David Letterman (at least until Stephen Colbert takes over "The Late Show"), but Corden had quite a fun inaugural episode with American treasure Tom Hanks stopping by. Corden and Hanks teamed up to recreate every Tom Hanks movie from his decades of acting in under seven minutes. From Big to Cast Away to Captain Phillips. Watch it!
Here's James Corden & Tom Hanks doing every Tom Hanks movie in seven minutes (via YouTube):
You can't go wrong with some good clean fun with Tom Hanks. At first he seemed almost annoyed to be involved, but I think maybe it was just beginning with Forrest Gump that Hanks wasn't fond of, probably because it's more than likely the movie that gets quoted to him the most from fans around the world. But it's always cool to see Hanks do the song from Big, and also a rarity to actually get to see Hanks perform as Woody from Toy Story. And as you can see Corden is quite the bright personality, and he should make for a solid replacement host on the late night talk show circuit. But can he keep this kind of fun going strong?
