Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks has definitely played his share of iconic, memorable roles over the years.
To say that Tom is a versatile actor could very well be considered one of the biggest understatements of all time.
Forrest Gump. Saving Private Ryan. Philadelphia. Cast Away. Big. These are just some of the movies remembered decades after they were first released primarily because of Tom Hanks’ amazing performances within them.
Perhaps that same degree of star power will make the new Carly Rae Jepsen video just as memorable and iconic.
That’s right! Tom Hanks is starring in a lead role throughout Carly’s new music video for the single, “I Really Like You.”

As seen in the video, Tom Hanks has basically switched places with Carly in a way – singing her words through his impressive lip-syncing. The “I Really Like You” video was first released on YouTube on Friday and has already been seen over 3.1 million times. Quite a few people have posted their honest reactions and responses to Tom Hanks’ performance in the music video on Twitter.
They key to Tom Hanks’s lip-sync genius is that he doesn’t overmouth it.
