Two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks reunited with his castmate Caleb Landry Jones at the premiere of Apple Original Films’ Finch inside the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on Tuesday.

Hanks’ Finch and Jones’ android embark on a road trip in an RV with Goodyear to San Francisco, which is perilous after a cataclysmic solar event left Earth a wasteland.

And while the 31-year-old Texan only voiced Jeff in the Finch movie trailer, he clearly got quite close to the 65-year-old NoCal native during production.

Caleb is best known for acting in Rod Lurie’s 2020 war film The Outpost, Martin McDonagh’s 2017 drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and Jordan Peele’s 2017 horror masterpiece Get Out.

Jones is also an accomplished psychedelic musician and painter, who just dropped his second album Gadzooks Vol. 1 on September 24.

The Cannes Best Actor winner – sporting a camo NASCAR #88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. snapback – showcased his eccentric style in a grey face-print suit over a black shirt and shoes.

Caleb made sure to pay due reverence to his character Jeff’s robot shell, which held court on the red carpet.

Even Tom put his hand on Jeff’s shoulder and posed for several pictures while saying hello to his robotic scene partner.

Missing from the premiere were Hanks and Jones’ not-so-secret castmates Samira Wiley, Laura Harrier, and Skeet Ulrich who may or may not only appear in flashback scenes.

Finch – streaming this Friday on Apple TV+ – was directed by two-time Emmy winner Miguel Sapochnik (House of the Dragon showrunner) and executive produced by Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis.

The seven-time Emmy winner and wedding crasher looked every bit the movie star wearing a dapper black suit over a matching unbuttoned shirt and dress shoes.

Also missing from Tom’s side at the film festivities were his wife of 23 years – Rita Wilson – and his four adult children.

Since last year, Hanks and the 65-year-old singer have been a target of QAnon conspiracy theorists, who believe a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles run a global child sex-trafficking ring – none of which is true.
