    Tom Hanks doesn't even need a beat.

    Twenty-eight years after his breakout on the big screen in "Big," Hanks still knows the rap that his character and friend chant to each other.

    Wesley Chan and Philip Wang of Wong Fu Productions went to Florence, Italy, to meet Ron Howard and Tom Hanks, who were promoting their new film, "Inferno."

    Wang, a lifelong Hanks fan, admitted he memorized the rap in 'Big' because he watched it so often growing up. When he asked the actor if they could recite it together, Hanks didn't hesitate.

    Hanks also revealed that the famous rap was stolen from his kid's summer camp, because while filming "Big," they felt the movie was missing something.
