A Tale of Two Segments: Tom Hanks Does Sports Segment On CNN, Dances En Espanol on Univision

Actor Tom Hanks is in the middle of a media blitz for his new movie Larry Crowne. Bring the experienced actor he is, he was not about to let the media circuit get him down.

Yesterday on CNN, Hanks spoke to Kyra Phillips about politics, NASA and how he would change CNN “I would take you [Kyra] and I would put you in a skin-tight cat uniform.”

He followed that up by anchoring the sports segment as only someone of his caliber could (starts about 9:45 into the video):

That was nothing compared to what happened on Univision’s morning show “Despierta America” Tuesday. Hanks helped give the weather report, and had a dance-off with the meteorologist in the process, all en espanol (warning: video will play automatically):
