Tom Hanks and his pal Wilson the Volleyball have been inseparable ever since the two met while on the set of Cast Away

So inseparable, in fact, that Hanks brought Wilson with him to Madison Square Garden for Wednesday's game between the Rangers and Bruins.

Roundtable: Rick Nash's legacy, Calder race and more

Wilson did Hanks a huge solid when he kept him sane by being Hanks' only friend on that abandoned island, so hopefully Hanks bought him a beer or a hot dog or something to help repay him.

If that duo didn't have enough star power, Hanks and Wilson were joined at the game by NBC news anchor Brian Williams.

Williams has certainly been in the news recently, but it's been way too long since we've seen Wilson. Good to have everyone's favorite volleyball back in the public eye.
