It’s been a few decades since Tom Hanks was an up and comer in Hollywood, but even with his Oscar wins and nominations under his belt, and the iconic turns as various characters over the years, some people still remember Hanks for his classic film Big. Hanks is now doing the rounds promoting his latest film, Captain Phillips,which brought him to The Jonathan Ross Show where he recreated the famous piano scene from Big with some help from Sandra Bullock.
Since he starred in Big back in the 1980s, Hanks has had his fair share of both iconic characters and scenes but his first was in Big. The ‘Chopsticks’ scene is easily the most recognizable scene from the movie and people who haven’t even seen Big know about the scene and you’re hard-pressed not to want to recreate the scene yourself whenever you may come across a giant piano — or even a regular piano.
Bullock wasn’t in the film and had nothing to do with the original scene, rather she was there to help promote the now $200 million epic Gravity which has actually kept Tom Hanks out of the No. 1 spot in the box office after two impressive weeks. But the two could put aside the box office quarrel to recreate a scene that takes us all back to a simpler time.
