Kimmel's Tom Hanks 'Biopic' Costars Bosom Buddies' Peter Scolari

Jimmy Kimmel called on one of Tom Hanks‘ buddies to help pay tribute to the Hollywood icon.

Peter Scolari on Thursday made a surprise cameo in Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s trailer for the not-so-real biopic Hanks, a film that chronicles the two-time Oscar winner’s rise from Bosom Buddies co-lead to star of such films as Forrest Gump and Cast Away, featuring Captain “Sully” Sullenberger in the title role.

Scolari appears throughout the three-minute clip, first backstage on the set of the aforementioned sitcom, then at the 1993 Academy Awards — still dressed as onetime alter-ego Hildegard — where Hanks won his first gold statue for Philadelphia.

Press PLAY on the clip above, then head to the comments and answer the following question: Does four-time Emmy nominee Scolari deserve a fifth nom for his work in Hanks?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    To Whom it May Concern,

    Please don’t let Tom Hanks be anything other than Tom Hanks. Don’t let any dirty secrets, stupid drunk fueled rants, or any of the other Hollywood crazy that seems to go around ever come out about this wonderful man. Please just let him be a wonderful man .. forever!

    Very Sincerely, a Tom Hanks Fan

    It has to be the best Tom Hanks interview ever. Wonderful little stories, good insights into the industry and one kick-ass short bio of him.

    I love Tom Hanks. He seems like such a genuinely nice, down to earth and humble human being. I feel the same about Ron Howard. People like those two are few and far between in the entertainment business.
