Tom Hanks would rather help America's children than promote his latest film, "Cloud Atlas," in which he plays six different characters. (9:49)

AND SPEAKING OF WITCHES, FOLKS, HALLOWEEN IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.

BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THE OBAMA ECONOMY MEANS A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN'T AFFORD ELABORATE COSTUMES THIS YEAR.

IN FACT, MANY WOMEN CAN'T EVEN AFFORD DIGNITY.

(LAUGHTER) SO TONIGHT I'VE GOT SOME WAYS FOR YOU TO HAVE A GREAT HALLOWEEN WITHOUT BUSTING YOUR BUDGET.

IT'S TIME FOR STEPHEN GHOUL-BERT'S SPOOKY TIME HALLOWEEN FUN GUIDE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) NOW FIRST, FOLKS, FIRST, OF COURSE, WILL YOU NEED A BIG BOWL OF CANDY.

AND A SEPARATE BIG BOWL OF RAZOR BLADES, OKAY.

THAT WAY THE KIDS CAN SEE THAT THE RAZOR BLADES AREN'T IN THE CANDY, ALL RIGHT.

PUTS THE PARENTS' MINDS AT EASE.

NOW KEEP IN MIND THAT A GREAT HALLOWEEN COSTUME DOES NOT HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE.

FOR EXAMPLE, YOU JUST GRAB A LITTLE FELT, OKAY, SOME GLITTER, A TUBE OF GLUE AND VOILA, NOW YOU ARE A KINTER

GUARD-- KINDERGARTEN TEACHER.

OH, HEY HEY, THAT IS MY SPECIAL GUEST WITH SOME MORE GREAT IDEAS.

LET'S GO.

ALL RIGHT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) YOU LOOK GREAT.

>> THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR COMING.

YOU WANT SOME CANDY, TOM.

>> NO THANKS, STEPHEN.

I JUST SHAVED.

>> OKAY.

TOM T IS JUST SO GREAT FOR TO YOU TAKE TIME TO HELP THE KIDS, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE A BIG MOVIE OPENING TOMORROW.

>> I DO?

>> YEAH, CLOUD-- THE EPIC STORY IN WHICH THE ACTIONS AND CONSEQUENCES OF OUR LIVES IMPACT ONE ANOTHER

THROUGH THE PAST, PRESENT AND THE FUTURE AS ONE ACT OF KINDNESS RIPPLES OUT FOR CENTURIES TO INSPIRE A REVOLUTION.

>> OH, CLOUD ATLAS, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, I GUESS THAT IS COMING OUT TOMORROW.

BUT YOU KNOW, STEPHEN, I'M NOT HERE TO TALK ABOUT ME OR MY MOVIES OR MY LEGACY AS A LIVING LEGEND.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: I DIDN'T ACTUALLY SAY YOU WERE A LIVING LEGEND.

>> ACTUALLY, STEVE, I'M HERE FOR THE KIDS WITH SOME GREAT, INEXPENSIVE COSTUMES THAT WILL MAKE FOR A

SPOOK-TACULAR HALLOWEEN.

HERE'S ONE NOW.

>> Stephen: OKAY, GREAT.

>> HEY, LOOK AT THAT, IT'S A COWBOY.

>> YUP, JUST A HAT, SOME JEANS, A CHECK SHIRT, A VEST AND YOU ARE READY TO RIDE THE RANGE, PARDONNER.

>> THERE'S A SNAKE IN MY BOOT.

>> Stephen: GIVE THE KID SOME CANDY THERE, TOM.

>> OH, YEAH, SURE THERE YOU GO, PALLY.

THAT'S WHAT WOODY SAYS IN "TOY STORY".

THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT LINES IN THAT MOVIE.

>> Stephen: OH, HEY, HERE'S ANOTHER IDEA, YEAH.

>> TRICK OR TREAT.

>> Stephen: OH, WOW, AN ASTRONAUT, TOM, TELL THE FOLKS HOW YOU DID THIS.

>> THIS IS EASY, GET A PUFFY JACKET AND SOME OVEN MITTS, SOME IT UPER WEAR AND SKY'S THE LIMIT.

>> I KNOW, I KNOW, ISN'T IT GREAT.

AND IT'S SO SIMPLE TO MAKEMENT YOU PROBABLY HAVE A VOLLEYBALL AT YOUR HOUSE, OR JUST STEAL ONE FROM THE

LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL.

AND THEN JUST USE THE BLOOD IN YOUR BODY, AND IT'S A REAL PENNEY PINCHER.

YOU KNOW.

>> YOU KNOW, KIDS ARE SO PERCEPTIVE.

>> Stephen: TOM, I'M DISAPPOINTED IN YOU.

THIS WAS NEVER ABOUT HELPING PEOPLE.

THIS IS A CYNICAL MANIPULATION OF INNOCENT CHILDREN TO PLUG YOUR MOVIES.

>> STEPHEN, I CAN'T CONTROL WHAT KIDS LIKE, WHAT WITH THEIR SPONGEBOB AND POKEMON AND CLOUD ATLAS.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

>> FINE, FINE, FINE, STEPHEN, YOU'RE RIGHT.

BUT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND THE PRESSURE OF BEING TOM HANKS WHEN YOU'RE UP ON THE TOP, MAN.

THEY'RE ALWAYS GUNNING FOR YOU.

THEY'RE ALWAYS GUNNING FOR YOU.

AND NOW I GOT THAT PUNK JOSEPH GORDEN LEVITT NIPPING AT MY HEELS.

(APPLAUSE) WELL, I HAVE MY OWN RESPONSIBILITY, TOM HANKS, STEPHEN GHOULBERT SPOOKY TIME IS A SACRED TRUST AND

YOU DON'T HAVE ONE, NOT EVEN ONE COSTUME THAT IS JUST ABOUT THE KIDS, AND NOT ABOUT YOUR CAREER.

WELL THEN, I'M AFRAID I'M GOING TO HAVE TO ASK YOU TO LEAVE.

>> PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, EVERYBODY, PLEASE, PLEASE, I'M SORRY.

JUST GIVE ME ONE MORE CHANCE?

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: OKAY, I'LL GET IT.
