Capt. Chesley Sullenberger stars as Tom Hanks in cheeky Hanks biopic by Jimmy Kimmel

The movie Sully opens on Friday, with Tom Hanks playing Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the pilot who heroically landed a passenger jet in the Hudson River in 2009. Hanks and Sullenberger were on Thursday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the film, and Kimmel had a little surprise up his sleeve. "You did, Tom, such a great job playing Sully in this film," he said, "that we felt it was time that somebody paid tribute to your life and your career."

Hanks maybe wasn't thrilled with the shoe being on the other foot. "Chesley Sullenberger, I used to have such respect for you," he said, good-naturedly. "Do I actually sound like that?" "Yeah, he nailed you," Kimmel said. "Well, now, we both have checkered careers, you and I," Hanks told Sullenberger, who replied that at least nobody got hurt. Except, maybe, that box of chocolates.
