Full House

Tom Hanks does 'Full House' poetry slam on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'

Tom Hanks sure has been making the rounds. Over the weekend he dropped by "Saturday Night Live," and recently he agreed to be interviewed by the Nerdist podcast thanks to a vintage typewriter being thrown in the mix. 

But he may have made his most surprising move Tuesday night, dropping by "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" to do a poetry slam on ... the 1990s sitcom "Full House"?

Yep, it happened. Maybe he was inspired by the 25th anniversary party the "Full House" gang threw for themselves last month, maybe not. But it was almost certainly the longest (over 3 minutes) poetry slam late night has seen in years. 

Done up in full bohemian poetry guy duds (that is, a black turtleneck) and oh-so-serious demeanor, the Oscar-winning Hanks strode onto the stage and stood in a spotlight reading lines like: "House full of men/Danny, Jesse, Joey/Father, Uncle Friend/Uncle Jesse whose hair is never messy/Watch the hair, huh?/Have mercy on Uncle Jesse."

He even gave the whole setup a bit of a sinister twist, wondering why there were no women in the house, only girls.
