Wilson the Volleyball From 'Cast Away' Is Suddenly Everywhere

Nearly 15 years after becoming an unlikely phenomenon, Wilson the volleyball from Cast Away is
suddenly popping up all over the place.

The surprising trend began a few months ago, when a brand-spanking new model of the makeshift,
blood-stained ball was presented at a New York Rangers game to Tom Hanks. Hanks, of course, played
Cast Away’s marooned FedEx employee Chuck who’s stuck on a tropical island after a plane crash and
creates Wilson out of lonely desperation. It was a sweet reunion that very much warmed the cold
hearts of hockey fans everywhere.
