There’s been much confusion on the Internet as to whether a now-famous viral photo of an iconic actor imitating a crying baby on a golf course in Scotland is Bill Murray or Tom Hanks, with this photo (posted on Facebook) causing much confusion.
While the star in the photo is clearly Bill Murray, Hanks addressed the controversy on a recent appearance on “The Graham Norton Show” in London. “Unless I’ve had a cranial plate shift that is medicinal, that’s not me,” quipped Hanks. “I believe that’s Bill!”
With that finally settled, Norton took things a step further by enticing the “Inferno” star to don a red raincoat and recreate the photo in studio. Filling in for the wailing baby is fellow talk show guest Joseph Gordon-Levitt, while actress Gemma Arterton poses as the ticked-off tot’s mother.
“Well, I’ve been doing a pale imitation of Bill Murray for most of my career, so it actually works out,” joked Hanks.
