Wilson and Tom Hanks reunited this week!
The Cast Away star reunited with the volleyball during Wednesday’s New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden. The acclaimed actor was in the stands at the game when he popped up on the jumbotron. While he was busy waving to fans, someone tossed him a replica of the infamous Wilson much to his surprise. Hanks took a moment to reacquaint himself with his long-lost friend, and then the two started a “Let’s Go Rangers” chant.
For those who don’t remember, Hanks played a delivery service executive who was the sole survivor of a plane crash and spends years living on a deserted island before getting rescued. To keep him company, he turned a volleyball from one of the plane’s washed-up packages into Wilson, a fan-favorite cast member in the movie. It also spawned the classic line WILSON!!!!
