Tom Hanks reunited with his 'Cast Away' co-star, Wilson

Posted on


Actor Tom Hanks was reunited with an old friend and co-star during Wednesday night’s Rangers-Bruins game at Madison Square Garden in New York. It was none other than Wilson the volleyball.

Or at least a volleyball that looked a lot like his best friend in the film Cast Away, whose blood-stained face kept Hank’s character company while he was shipwrecked in the 2000 film.

The actor was looking uncomfortably at the camera filming him, waving a little bit, when all of a sudden the prop ball was tossed at him. He waved it around to fans and started to cheer on the team with it.
