Tom Hanks Hilariously Solves The Bill Murray Photo Mystery

The two-time Oscar winner finally put an end to an internet debate over whether a viral picture of Bill Murray was actually Tom Hanks.

You might recall that back in October, a certain picture of Bill Murray drove the internet crazy because people thought he looked like Tom Hanks.

Many people on the internet are still not convinced that it’s not Hanks.

Well, if you’re among the few who still aren’t convinced, the two-time Academy Award winner has weighed in and settled the matter once and for all in an appearance on British comedian Graham Norton’s talk show.

"I've been doing a pale imitation of Bill Murray for most of my career," joked Hanks. "I know that it's not me, because I did not take that picture, unless I've had a cranial plate shift that is medicinal."

He then agreed to put his acting skills to the test and tried to re-enact the infamous pic.

Donning an almost identical orange mac, he recruited fellow guests Gemma Arterton and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the mother and baby who also appear in the photo.

The end result is uncanny, and we can all now sleep at night knowing that the mystery has finally been solved.
