More gifts, more celebrations, more of everything great! On Day 5 of Ellen's 12 Days of Giveaways, gifts could come with ribbons; they could come with tags. They could come with packages, boxes or bags. Or perhaps, they'll just be shining bright from Ellen's lovely glow! It's another day for holiday radiance and kindness to illuminate the room!
He’s Hollywood's most indelible leading man -- TOM HANKS is here! With a potential Oscar nomination swirling about, the actor tells Ellen about the wonderful world of "Saving Mr. Banks," his new big-screen portrayal of Walt Disney. The year has already been sensational for the multiple Academy Award winner, whose film "Captain Phillips" garnered widespread praise. In his career, Tom has filled the extraordinary shoes of "Forrest Gump," trolled a desert island in "Cast Away," and navigated the trail of war in "Saving Private Ryan." As Disney, magic embodies Tom's portrayal, and he's about to paint a picture for Ellen when he sits down with her once again. Considering Tom is known for his foolery, he’ll sneak in some fun, too!
They call him "The Cutch." Pittsburgh Pirate ANDREW McCUTCHEN swings by for his first appearance on the show! The National League MVP had an incredible year, bringing the Pirates back into the spotlight with a long list of accomplishments that include his 100th career stolen base and 100th career home run. With Andrew front and center, the Pirates made it to the playoffs for the first time since 1992! Not only has the star athlete used his skills to achieve greatness on the field, he's also worked to inspire more African-American youths to join the game by serving as a mentor and leader.
Plus, assisting Ellen with holiday gift-giving is 11-year-old inventor PEYTON ROBERTSON, who will help Ellen test toys! Returning for his second appearance on the show, Peyton and Ellen will determine the hottest toys of the year, and it will definitely be all fun and games!
On Wednesday, Ellen's spirits get lifted higher than ever!
