Stephen Colbert has snagged Tom Hanks to narrate his satirical children’s book I Am A Pole (And So Can You) and The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive audio clip of Hanks and Colbert together.
The print version and the audio download go on sale May 8, with the audio CD following on May 29. The book will retail for $15.99. Hanks’ eight-minute audio rendition will sell for just $1.49 as a download and $3.98 on CD.
On last night’s edition of The Colbert Report, the host previewed the cover, announced Hanks’ involvement and pledged to donate all their profits from the audio book to usvetsinc.org, which helps homeless veterans (see the video below).
