Tom Hanks Imitates Bill Murray in That Photo

Updated

Remember when the Internet was briefly confused by a photo of Bill Murray because the photo looked kind of like Tom Hanks?

And remember how we talked about how each of us lives in an entirely subjective world of our own creation, governed by the processes that transmit external data into internal experience, processes that we have little or no cognitive control over?

The actor appeared on The Graham Norton Show on Friday and recreated the photo, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the part of the crying baby.

Turns out, Hanks took the whole controversy in stride: “Well, I’ve been doing a pale imitation of Bill Murray for most of my career,” he joked. “It actually works out.”
