"I was at dinner with friends of ours who works with Carly and they said, 'We were maybe going to ask you if you'd want to do this thing,' and I literally had a beer in my hand and I said, 'Yeah sure I'll do it,'" Hanks told ET on the red carpet at the SeriousFun Gala to benefit the Children's Network.
