Watch: Tom Hanks Talks About Sneaking Onto The Set of STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN
Tom Hanks was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and shared this awesome story of the time he snuck onto the set of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Apparently, the film was shooting on the same lot as the television show he was on, Bosom Buddies, and he and Peter Scolari snuck on the set to get a look at the film.
Safe to say, Hanks nerded out. He talks about seeing the interior of the Enterprise and standing on the transporters afraid someone would yell at him to get off the set! Hanks is really a great storyteller the way he paints the picture for us.
I also thought it was great when Kimmel asked him about the conversations he had with Danny DeVito and Robin Williams and essentially said "They didn't talk to us! We were nobodies." Funny how in the present day Hanks would have the star power of all those stars on set combined!
