Ron Howard Reacts to Tom Hanks’s Impression of Him on SNL

When Ron Howard saw Tom Hanks’s impression of him on SNL, Howard wasn’t too offended, but maybe a little worried about how accurate his impression had been. “Maybe he’s mad at you?” Conan suggested, probably because of the scenes where Hanks was forced to be underwater in Inferno. “Look, going back to Splash, he’s good under the water,” Howard explained. But it turned out that the difficult underwater scene was filmed on the last day of shooting, which caused Hanks to announce to the crew: “Ron Howard, professional director: Saves the stuff that can kill the star to the last day.” Joke all you want, Howard, but you better keep Hanks safe.
