Tom Hanks: 'Larry Crowne' Press Junket Getting 'Damn Good Reviews' (VIDEO)

Matt Lauer noted Wednesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) that the teacher/student romance in 'Larry Crowne' isn't creepy because the two characters involved, played by Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks, are roughly the same age. But according to Hanks, that romance came down to a coin flip, and 'Larry Crowne' could have been a very different movie.
"The other teacher is George Takei, Mr. Sulu, and between the two of them, we flipped a coin to see, where will the romance begin?" said Hanks. "We're talking to a whole different mass audience, I'm telling you right now. Timely, without a doubt. But a different audience."
Lauer also asked Hanks about the press tour for the movie, which included an appearance on the Spanish-language 'Despierta America' where he danced with weather woman Chiqui Delgado while delivering the forecast. "I think our press junket is getting damn good reviews," he said.
