On Thursday's hour-long special with Tom Hanks, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed some of Hanks' co-stars from "Lucky Guy," the new stage play by Nora Ephron that is currently in previews on Broadway.
Cast members Peter Scolari, Maura Tierney, Christopher McDonald and Courtney Vance shared with Piers Morgan what it is like to work with "Hanks the Great," as they playfully refer to him as.
"I tell you we laugh a lot," said McDonald. "It’s just been a really, really fun event."
"He really makes us all feel at ease. Tom is a master at just being himself and we fall right into his little rhythm," added Vance.
"I just wish you weren't so late all the time," joked Tierney about Hanks' consistent arrival to the theater 45 minutes ahead of his call time.
Jacob Bernstein, son of the late Nora Ephron, also joined the program and spoke about his mother's legacy as a journalist, screenwriter and playwright.
"I think that she was - in a lot of ways - she was in a race to get as much done as she could," said Bernstein about how her illness may have influenced her final work on "Lucky Guy." "I think that that happens and work becomes it's own kind of medicine and an escape from illness."
Later in the program when Hanks was asked to recall a film he'd like to make again if given the opportunity to, his immediate answer was "Apollo 13."
"Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton and I in that little cold capsule talking to Ronny [Ron] Howard on a radio, that was as pleasant a time as I can imagine," said Hanks.
For the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
