Tom Hanks appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman last night to promote his new film, Angels and Demons. While explaining his experience at President Obama's inauguration in January, he referred to Dick Cheney as "Mr. Potter."

Incontrovertible proof that Tom Hanks reads, enjoys, and steals ideas from Mount Drinkmore!Maybe we can get Hanks to guest on Mount Drinkmore like he did with the Pythons at the Concert for George.
