'SNL at Home': Tom Hanks Guest Hosts Episode From Coronavirus Quarantine

Saturday Night Live kicked off its first remote episode by introducing Tom Hanks as the surprise host. Hanks, who was the first Hollywood celebrity who tested positive for the coronavirus, alongside his wife, Rita Wilson, joked about being the "celebrity canary in the coal mine and ever since being diagnosed, I have been more like America's dad than ever before." Hanks also sported a shaved head, which he said was for a recent film role and thankfully means less time in the shower.

During Hanks' monologue, he caught fans up to date on his experience with the coronavirus. Hanks and Wilson were diagnosed last month during a visit to Australia and were quarantined in a hospital there for five days. They quarantined at a residence in Australia before returning home to their home in the U.S. "Now, my wife and I are doing great," Hanks said. "We're hunkered down, like all of us should be and in fact... this suit, this is the first time I've worn anything other than sweatpants since March 11."
