VIDEO: Tom Hanks Performs 'Spoken-Word' Poem on JIMMY FALLON
On last night's LATE NIGHT WITH Jimmy Fallon, Tom Hanks performed a spoken-word poem about the 1990's sitcom "Full House." The actor will be making his Broadway debut in Lucky Guy, a new play from the late Nora Ephron. Directed by George C. Wolfe, Lucky Guy begins performances on March 1, 2013 at the Broadhurst Theatre with opening night set for April 1. Check out last night's performance below!
Hanks appeared on the late night show to promote his newest film, 'Cloud Atlas.' The drama, mystery and action film is an epic about enduring love thread through a single story that unfolds in multiple timelines over the span of 500 years. Characters meet and reunite from one life to the next. Born and reborn. As the consequences of their actions and choices impact one another through the past, the present and the distant future, one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.
Academy Award® winners Hanks (Philadelphia, Forrest Gump) and Halle Berry (Monster’s Ball) lead a stellar international cast that also includes Oscar® winner Jim Broadbent (Iris), Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Xun Zhou, Keith David and David Gyasi, with Oscar® winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking) and Hugh Grant. Each member of the ensemble appears in multiple roles as the story moves through time. Cloud Atlas is produced by Grant Hill, Stefan Arndt, Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer and Andy Wachowski, with executive producers Philip Lee, Uwe Schott and Wilson Qui.
