Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock Recreate Big Piano Chopsticks Dance Scene

Tom Hanks is still a kid at heart — and so is Sandra Bullock! Both appearing on British talk show The Jonathan Ross Show over the weekend, the Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close costars were completely game to recreate one of Hanks’ most iconic movie scenes ever: The “Chopsticks” piano dance from Big. Host Ross had his crew roll out a giant keyboard — similar to the one seen in a pivotal FAO Schwarz-set scene in the beloved 1988 film — and Hanks, 57, was first to try his hand at tickling the enormous ivories.

After a hilarious bit that saw the two-time Oscar winner mock “playing” a much more elaborate piano piece with his feet, he was joined by Bullock, 49, who had the added challenge of performing in short shorts and very high heels. Hanks and Bullock proceeded to work the keyboard to Chopin’s trademark beginners’ tune. (In Big’s classic scene, Hanks’ character, a pre-adolescent boy trapped in the body of a grown man, teaches his grown-up boss Robert Loggia to play the tune in the middle of the crowded NYC toy store.)

Hanks was on hand to promote his latest film, Captain Phillips, while fellow Oscar champ Bullock talked up her raved-about new film Gravity — and, earlier in the program, proved her rapping prowess!
