Tom Hanks will replace Brian Williams on Thursday’s edition of “Late Show with David Letterman.” The last-minute guest had to be called in when Williams backed out of his scheduled appearance Sunday.

In some ways, the Hanks encounter should be equally fascinating: Hanks had been at the Rangers game with Williams when the newsman was honoring the veteran, Tim Terpak. It was during this game that Williams once again recounted the story that got him into so much hot water in the first place. (At the game, Hanks was also reunited with “Wilson.”) [source]

Happy new year everyone!

Sorry for the late coverage but as you all know, Tom was one of the 5 people honored in the 2014 Kennedy Center Honors.

The Kennedy Center celebrates five extraordinary individuals who have spent their lives elevating the cultural vibrancy of our nation and the world,” stated Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein. “Al Green’s iconic voice stirs our souls in a style that is all his own; Tom Hanks has a versatility that ranks him among the greatest actors of any generation; one of the world’s greatest ballerinas, Patricia McBride continues to carry forward her legacy for future generations; Sting’s unique voice and memorable songwriting have entertained audiences for decades; and from the days of her early television and theatrical appearances, Lily Tomlin has made us laugh and continues to amaze us with her acting talent and quick wit.”

Here is the video of the full segment dedicated to Tom during the night:

And I uploaded +100 HQ pictures of Tom through out the 2 nights the celebration took place. Check them out by clicking on the thumbnails below:

Washington (CNN) — Actor Tom Hanks and his wife, actress and singer Rita Wilson, will co-host the National Christmas Tree lighting next week, the National Park Service announced Wednesday.

The event, which takes place at the White House Ellipse, will also feature performances by veteran singer Patti LaBelle, vocal group The Tenors, R&B star Ne-Yo, and Country singer Chely Wright.

Artist Steve Miller, pop group Fifth Harmony, and duo Nico & Vinz will also be on stage Dec. 4. This year’s lighting marks the 92nd year of the tradition, which was started under President Calvin Coolidge.

Hanks was a top donor and fundraiser for Obama’s presidential campaigns. [Source]

Tom Hanks — yes, Oscar-winning movie star Tom Hanks — will publish a short story collection with Knopf, the publisher announced Monday. The book of short fiction is still untitled, and its release date has not yet been set.

One thing is known about the book: Its stories will be inspired by Hanks’ collection of typewriters.

In a release, Hanks said, “I’ve been collecting typewriters for no particular reason since 1978 – both manual and portable machines dating from the thirties to the nineties. The stories are not about the typewriters themselves, but rather, the stories are something that might have been written on one of them.”

Last month, Hanks published his first short story ever in no less than the New Yorker. “Alan Bean Plus Four” was said to be inspired by Hanks’ film and television work around the space program — “Apollo 13” and “From the Earth to the Moon” — and not a typewriter. (Maybe a typewriter too. We will see). [More at source]

Traveling to the moon was way less complicated this year than it was back in 1969, as the four of us proved, not that anyone gives a whoop. You see, over cold beers on my patio, with the crescent moon a delicate princess fingernail low in the west, I told Steve Wong that if he threw, say, a hammer with enough muscle, said tool would make a five-hundred-thousand-mile figure eight, sail around that very moon, and return to Earth like a boomerang, and wasn’t that fascinating?
