If Tom Hanks wasn't already considered the most fun celebrity out there, he certainly proved he has the chops to take on any situation -- including the funeral of fellow "Green Mile" actor Michael Clarke Duncan.
Getting the right tone for a humorous, nostalgic tale of the dearly departed isn't easy, but Hanks' emotional, funny eulogy at Monday's memorial service hit all the right notes. Using a spot-on imitation of Duncan's voice, he shared a story Duncan once told about about growing up in Chicago, and wanting to join a gang. After approaching the gang and saying he wanted in, Duncan got beaten up, then was admitted to the gang -- and went home with the gang's sign (a red spot) sprayed into his Afro.
Mom did not take this well -- and after meting out some punishment of her own, sent him back to tell the gang members, "My Mama says I can't be in your gang."
Hanks had the room laughing through tears. Check out the video for yourself!
