A British talk show provided the giant piano keyboard and Tom Hanks took up the challenge.

In the process, the 57-year-old actor, who’s on a publicity tour for his new movie “Captain Phillips,” proved he could still play “Chopsticks” with his feet — as he previously did so in the movie “Big” in 1988.

It was a famous scene: Hanks, in the role of a boy turned prematurely into a man, “playing” the piano at New York’s iconic FAO Schwarz toy story alongside Robert Loggia, who played a toy mogul in the movie.

Asked to reprise the performance, Hanks gladly obliged. “The Today Show” played the clip on NBC Monday morning — watch it, above.
