Yesterday was the debut of The Late Late Show with James Corden and CBS called in a lot of favors to make sure his opening bit was filled with big named celebrities. The bit explained how he got the job and it was Willy Wonka-esque as in people who were rumored for the position searched for the Golden Ticket. When Chelsea Handler accidentally dropped her chocolate bar, Corden found it and got the Golden Ticket aka job. The Wonka of the segment was Jay Leno and he helped to prep the CBS late night host for his job. When the former Tonight Show host was done with the training, he declared, “In three months, this show will be mine.” It’s not like Leno hasn’t done it before… But I don’t think he would really go for it? Or would he???
Another fun thing the show did last night on CBS at 12:35a was they had guest, Tom Hanks, reenact a lot of his movies with Corden in just under 7 minutes. The only negative is it included a lot of his newer movies, and I forgot how horrible they were. I actually blocked Road to Perdition out of my mind until they brought it up. I also wish they would’ve included two of his most popular TV show appearances, Bosom Buddies and Family Ties. Who didn’t down some Vanilla Extract as kid after they saw him on Family Ties?
When it comes to The Late Late Show with James Corden, it reminded me a lot of Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Oscar specials. Even Kimmel can only do those one night year, so it will be interesting to see how Corden does next week when the thrill of his debut week is over. What did you think of his first show?
Mila Kunis is a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden’s first episode tonight at 12:35a on CBS and the host asked her if she got married to her baby daddy Ashton Kutcher. All she would says is I don’t know and maybe. While Tom Hanks was checking out her ring finger, Corden just asked to see her hand and said that they are married. The That’s 70’s Show star tried to shake it off, but it was too late.
So did she confirm that she is married? All I can say is I don’t know and maybe. What do you think?
When I think of Tom Hanks, I think of that lovable guy we got to know in movies like Splash and Forrest Gump. Well, Yahoo! Screen opened my eyes to another side of the two-time Oscar winner in films. Our bosom buddy has had some really wild and crazy outbursts in his movies too, but we forget about them. I mean, now I remember him screaming all the time in Money Pit, but that is what made that flick so funny.
Even when he is mad, he makes us glad. And that is why we love love love Tom Hanks!
Beliebe it or not, Justin Bieber and Tom Hanks attended the same party together. We know this because the singer shared a video he took of the two time Oscar winner. Which is extraordinary in itself, but it gets better when you see Forrest Gump mouthing the chorus of This Is How We Do It dressed as a Rabbi. Who knew?
So what brought the two men together, they attended the wedding of Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun to Yael Cohen. So now that bosom buddy dressed as the Rabbi at their wedding, I wonder if he will perform the circumcision at the Bris of their first son? Seriously, what can’t Hanks do?

Back in March, Tom Hanks was gracious enough to meet one of his biggest fans. What makes Sarah Moretti so special that he would invite her his Broadway dressing room? The young woman has autism and according to the description on the YouTube page following his career has “made her life better.”
The two-time Oscar winner made her feel special, not because she has autism but since she is a big fan of his. It is for that reason that we will always be a huge fan of his because he cares about his fans and appreciates them.
I didn’t need another reason to love him, so these videos just made me love him even more. Seriously, don’t you know how humble and genuine he is even after winning two Oscars an being in some of the biggest movies ever made?
Tom Hanks was on The Jonathon Ross Show and the talk show host showed off a piano keyboard like the one that was used in that memorable scene from the classic movie Big. The two started out with Chopsticks and then they went for a song with a much faster tune. Once that was done, Sandra Bullock came out and Forrest Gump and her did Chopsticks together. Yet there was note they couldn’t hit.
If this video doesn’t brighten your Monday morning, I don’t know what will. No matter how old Hanks get, he still makes us feel like he did when he that kid trapped in a man’s body in Big. In ways the Oscar winner never grew up and that is a good thing.
The first trailer is out for Parkland; and if the trailer is any hint about how amazing the movie is, I think we have an Oscar winner on our hands. I don’t remember the last time a trailer wowed me like this one.
Maybe because I am obsessed with John F Kennedy’s assassination, but I think this movie will do that moment justice.
I can’t wait to see this movie that stars Zac Efron, Marcia Gay Harden, Ron Livingston, Tom Welling and Paul Giamatti when it comes out on October 4th.
John Stamos posted a video of Tom Hanks, Bob Saget and The Beach Boys’ Al Jardine singing Randy Newman’s I Love LA and I love it as much as I love the city I live in, Los Angeles.
BTW how did I not know that Tom Hanks was such a good singer? To think of all of the movie musicals he could’ve been in but wasn’t. He would’ve been better than Richard Gere was in Chicago and Pierce Brosnan in Mamma Mia to name a few.
Almost a third of a century after Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari started working together on a little show called Bosom Buddies, they are teaming up again for another project next year. Buffy and Hildegarde, I mean Kip and Henry, will be starring in Lucky Guy on Broadway. According to Playbill the Nora Ephron play is about “the scandal- and graffiti-ridden New York of the 1980s, as told through the story of the charismatic and controversial tabloid columnist Mike McAlary (Hanks). From his sensational reporting of New York’s major police corruption to the libel suit that nearly ended his career, the play dramatizes the story of McAlary’s meteoric rise, fall and rise again, ending with his coverage of the Abner Louima case for which he won the Pulitzer Prize, shortly before his untimely death on Christmas Day, 1998.”
The play begins previews at the Broadhurst Theatre on March 1st and opens on my birthday April 1st. So I will try my hardest to be a lucky girl and see Lucky Guy on my B-day because I have had such crushes on both of them because of that sitcom and that would be my perfect gift!
Seriously how awesome is that they have remained Bosom Buddies for all of these decades!
BTW I found out about this story from Holland Taylor aka their old boss/partner Ruth Dunbar on Twitter!
