In a hilarious sketch from the May premiere of Maya & Marty - NBC's new sketch show starring Maya Rudolph and Martin Short - Hanks played a less-than-honest astronaut. Even funnier, though?

Big Stars Love TV So Much, They’re Even Hosting Game Shows Now

2 July 2016 8:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Remember when big-name stars didn’t want to do TV? Now they’re even clamoring for jobs as game show hosts.

Alec Baldwin (ABC’s “Match Game”), Taye Diggs (Fox’s “Hypnotize Me”), Jane Lynch (NBC’s “Celebrity Game Night”) and Anthony Anderson (ABC’s “To Tell the Truth”) are just some of the actors who now front major primetime game shows, in addition to their regular scripted work.

“You look at game shows from the 1970s and 1980s, they were somewhat cheesy,” Anderson said. “It’s different now. It’s a lot classier. It’s cool.”

Wayne Brady, who has hosted a “Let’s Make a Deal” revival for CBS since 2009, joked that “being a game show host was very much akin to being a local affiliate weatherman – and no offense to local affiliate weathermen, but there’s a stereotype.”
