First Clip from Tom Hanks’ LARRY CROWNE; Plus Hanks Spoofs TODDLERS & TIARAS

     February 28, 2011


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.
