Tom Hanks to Host Biden Inauguration TV Special “Celebrating America”

Actor Tom Hanks will host “Celebrating America,” an TV special for Biden’s inauguration.

The special will also feature performances from Jon Bon Jovi, Demi Lovato, and Justin Timberlake.

During a September interview last year, Tom Hanks questioned if President Trump took his oath of office seriously.

In a new piece for “Variety” Kate Aurthur and Ramin Setoodeh write “after four Years of Trump, Hollywood wants to help Biden and Harris save America”

They quote director Lee Daniels as saying “our next president has to clean up the mess from the past four years, the pandemic, our economy, criminal justice, the Dreamers, care for the kids still at our borders, protections for LGBTQ, signing the Emmett Till anti-lynching bill into law, climate control, calming the hate, affordable health care …

“I could go on and on, but you got my point,” Daniels adds. “Biden and Harris certainly have their hands full. I pray for them and the country every single day.”
