Tom Hanks Reprises ‘SNL’ Halloween Character David S. Pumpkins During Surprise Skit


Tom Hanks recreated beloved Halloween character David S. Pumpkins during a surprise visit to Saturday Night Live.

The Oscar-winning actor easily jumped into spooky spirit for a skit with Mikey Day and former cast member Bobby Moynihan who danced alongside Hanks wearing skeleton costumes.

Hanks was sporting his signature black suit covered in bright orange pumpkins for the time, where Kenan Thompson took Ego Nwodim and Andrew Dismukes on the “scariest ride in Fright Night history” with host Jack Harlow.

“If I pass out, video me, post it, please,” Harlow told his friends before entering Cellblock 666’s fear zone.

The terrifying clown Pennywise came out from another cell block to scare the trio. “Pennywise makes sense because he was in a horror movie,” Dismukes explained.

When Pumpkins reappeared, Nwodim asked exactly what Pumpinks’ “contract” was while trying to confirm who he really was.

“Annabelle is a possessed doll. David S. Pumpkins is…” the comedian said before interrupting her with, “Take it one day at a time!”
