Look, Tom Hanks doesn't really need to work these days.

He's done plenty in the last 30 years to bring America charm and delight in a big, friendly package.
Even though it it looks like he's got some movies coming down the pike he hasn't acted in one since 2013's Saving Mr. Banks.

So, he's got time on his hands.

This was evidenced by his unexpected appearance answering questions all over Reddit earlier this week.

Well, apparently, he had some more questions that he wanted answers.

Stephen Colbert is in a different, though still not less-inquisitive, boat.

After months of build up, his show is finally chugging along at a steady clip and he's probably starting to get into the routine of the whole affair.

Focused so intently on the goal, once its accomplished, he's probably feeling a jet lag of emotions rushing at him, calling into question where he is and what he's doing.

So the two decided to lay back on a blanket and ask those questions to themselves.

It's very funny.

Tom Hanks just answered a bunch of random Reddit questions yesterday.

Charming everyman Tom Hanks must have been pretty bored yesterday.

He obviously had a hankering to do a Reddit AMA, even though he's already done one. But instead of waiting for Redditors to ask him again what kind of sandwich he prefers, the tenacious Tom went around to different subreddits to find questions he felt like answering.

The results are adorable.

He talked about what movie he made that he thinks deserves reconsideration.



He answered many questions.

Like, a part of his job many people may not know about:



Something he thought was awesome as a teen, but ridiculous now:



Gave a weird six-word story:



Gave advice on what to buy to fill an unknown hole in your life:



Gave his favorite TV theme song:



Gave what he thought would have been the most underwhelming announcement from NASA on Mars



Gave his scariest movie moment:



Apparently, he really, really hates reality TV.



He recommended a book on Soviet history:



And gave advice on what to do when you're under the weather.



What a dad.



And in the end, he gave his favorite quote:



Thanks, Tom Hanks.
