Tom Hanks Hosts 'Saturday Night Live: Home Edition' After Coronavirus Battle (Video)

Tom Hanks is back in the public eye and he’s looking great!

After battling coronavirus, the 63-year-old actor hosted Saturday Night Live: Home Edition from his home on Saturday (April 11).

“Hey, it’s good to be here, though it is also very weird to be here hosting Saturday Night Live from home,” Tom said. “It is a strange time to try to be funny, but trying to be funny is SNL’s whole thing, so we thought, what the heck, let’s give it a shot!”

“But, why me as host?” Tom asked. “Well, for one, I have been the celebrity canary in the coal mine for the coronavirus and ever since being diagnosed I have been more like America’s dad than ever before… since no one wants to be around me very long and I make people uncomfortable.” He explained that because he was diagnosed in Australia, where they use Celsius on their thermometers, he learned that ’36 is fine, 38 is bad, so basically, it’s how Hollywood treats female actors.”

Tom then updated viewers saying that he and wife Rita Wilson are “doing fine, doing great” and “hunkered down, like all of us should be.”
