Saturday Night Live made a historic virtual return on April 11 after taking a filming hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. And what better way to open the show than with an at-home monologue from Tom Hanks? The 63-year-old actor, aka America's dad, kicked things off with a health update after he and wife Rita Wilson tested positive for COVID-19 back in March. "My wife and I, we're doing fine, we're doing great," he said. "We're hunkered down like all of us should be. In fact, this suit — this is the first time I've worn anything other than sweatpants since March 11." Relatable.

He then did a Q&A with an "audience," which literally was Hanks . . . in different costumes. Hey, we've all got to make the most out of our self-isolation experience. Watch Hanks open the SNL episode in the clip above!
