"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – Tom Hanks and the cast of "Lucky Guy"

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • The Cast of "Lucky Guy" shares what it's like to work with "Hanks the Great"

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.

  • Nora Ephron's son talks about his mother's legacy

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."

  • Hank's favorite movie making experience

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.
