Tom Hanks was guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s post-Oscar show last night and he brought along the first clip from his new film Larry Crowne. The story centers on a laid-off middle-aged man (Hanks) who goes back to college and strikes up a relationship with one of his professors (Julia Roberts). Larry Crowne is the first film Hanks has directed since 1996′s That Thing You Do, and he co-wrote the script with Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). The clip looks charming and he almost always succeeds when it comes to light-hearted fare.
Hanks also did a fun spoof of the TLC’s horrific Toddlers & Tiaras, a show which attempts to capture the elusive pedophile/abusive parent demographic. Hit the jump to check out the clip from Larry Crowne and Hanks’ Toddlers & Tiaras spoof. Larry Crowne opens July 1st.
