What's with Hollywood stars rapping and slamming? Gwenyth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz took it in the chin for their misguided musical ode to Chelsa Handler. The latest actor leaving his comfort zone is Oscar-winner Tom Hanks, who played slam poet on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" as he meditated on 1990s sitcom "Full House." 

It's all in there, from Uncle Jesse and Kimmy Gibbler to "wake up San Francisco." The star of "Cloud Atlas" didn't quite find the groove of the slam poet sitcom recap. Maybe "Saved by the Bell" is more his speed.
