SNL: Tom Hanks shows up


Did you catch Saturday Night Live last night?  If so, did you catch the special guest?

Film legend Tom Hanks helped get people talking less about his dropping of the F-bomb on Good Morning America this week by showing up unannounced during SNL's cold open this week, which parodied this week's presidential debate with President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney. 

Hanks asked a question that he came up with after sitting around with "a braintrust" of people at his office - similar to a real question that appeared during the debate.

“This is a pretty good question,” Hanks said. “You’d better buckle your seatbelts, because this question is about to blow your mind.”

After stumbling around, Hanks finally said "Libya" and sat back down. Obama and Romney then got into it over the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benhhazi and how to define it.

“I am willing to bet you have never once in your life used the phrase terrorist act,” Romney (Jason Sudeikis) said. After moderator Candy Crowley confirmed Obama did use that phrase, Obama (Jay Pharoah) dropped the microphone in victory.

I am a huge fan of Tom Hanks and wish he made a lot more movies. He is also one of my favorite SNL hosts, so this was a nice treat.
