Tom Hanks & Wilson Reunion — ‘Cast Away’ BFFs Back Together
Tom was just enjoying a New York Rangers game when he got the surprise of his life.
Everyone’s favorite volleyball aka Wilson made an expected appearance! Initially, Tom didn’t know it was Wilson. When he saw his BFF’s face, he held him straight up to the camera! He started chanting, “Let’s go Wilson!” with the crowd.
Watch the incredible moment below:
Cast Away hit theaters in 2000, so it’s been 15 whole years since Tom and Wilson have technically seen each other. In the movie, Tom plays Chuck, whose plane crashes in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
He washes up on an uninhabited island, where he is stranded for several years. His only friend is Wilson, who is created by Chuck’s bloody handprint. When Chuck loses Wilson while trying to find his way home, it’s impossible not to sob.
The movie became an instant Tom Hanks classic and Wilson remains an iconic movie character. Cast Away was nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best Actor. But we all know that Wilson should have gotten a Best Supporting Actor nod.
At last, Tom/Chuck and Wilson are together again. We’ve seen a lot of cast reunions lately, but this one takes the cake.
