You may know Tom Hanks as Forrest or Woody, but what about Kip?

Back in 1980 – long before he was the most successful actor in Hollywood – Hanks starred as Kip Wilson in a cross-dressing sitcom called Bosom Buddies. The series only last two seasons, and aside from intermittent collaborations, Hanks and his co-star Peter Scolari haven’t really worked together since.

But that’s about to change. Producers announced yesterday that Hanks and Scolari are reuniting on the upcoming Broadway production of Lucky Guy, the Associated Press reports.

Written by the late Nora Ephron, Lucky Guy chronicles Pulitzer Prize-winning tabloid journalist Mike McAlary’s exploits and adventures in 1980’s New York. Hanks will play McAlary and Scolari will play columnist Michael Daly. The production marks Hanks’ Broadway debut; Scolari performed on Broadway in Sly Fox and Hairspray from 2003-04.
