Tom Hanks is on Team CoCo, and he’s joining the red-haired host for his big Tonight Show farewell!

Conan O’Brien will host his final episode of The Tonight Show tomorrow — and if you think he’s going quietly, think again! Superstar Tom Hanks recently took to his Twitter to announce his appearance on the big finale: “Going on Friday’s Big Show,” he tweeted. “What WILL happen? Tune in. Hanx.” He’ll be joining previously announced finale guest Will Ferrell, so you know something big is in the works! Both actors have been on Conan’s Tonight Show before — Will was a guest for the premiere episode on June 1, 2009, and Tom dropped by the next night — so maybe Conan is simply trying to go out the same way he came in!

We bet Tom Hanks will have a few choice words for NBC when he guests on the finale. Remember what he and Julia Roberts said about the network when they were interviewed on the Golden Globes red carpet? Allow us to jog your memory:
