With the help of a giant floor piano, Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock recreated a scene from his 1988 film Big, in which he played Chopsticks in New York City's FAO Schwartz.
During an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, Hanks showed he can still act like the kid he once portrayed on screen. He busted out Chopsticks with the talk show host and the actor was left tugging his pants back up a bit just like he had to do after the famous department store scene.
In the movie Big, Hanks plays the adult version of a boy named Josh who wishes he could be big. Trapped in a grown man's body with the mind of a 12-year-old, Josh's youthful spirit rubs off on the adults around him. It plays out famously in a piano scene where Hanks and actor Robert Loggia dance the song Heart and Soul.
On the Ross show, the host asked Hanks, "You want to try something faster? Just show us what you can do." Hanks, 57, then jumps on the keyboard for a rapid-fire tap session but fails to keep up with the music. Then out comes actress Sandra Bullock to help out.
The two stars have the most buzzed-about movies out right now, as Hanks stars in Captain Phillips and Bullock leads the box-office smash Gravity.
"Now we can do 'Chopsticks,' but maybe not in your heels," Hanks said to Bullock.
"Oh, I can do 'Chopsticks' in my heels," she replied confidently, as the camera zoomed in on Christian Louboutins.
Big was nominated for two awards at the Oscars in 1989 and won Hanks a Globen Globe that year for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical. The film was also nominated at the same awards ceremony for Best Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical. It also won at the People's Choice Awards for Favorite Comedy Motion Picture.
