Tom Hanks and Tim Allen were spotted eating breakfast together earlier this week at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Tom, 66, and Tim, 69, sat apart from many of the restaurant’s other diners and appeared to enjoy each other’s company as they met in a photo obtained by TMZ.
The pair’s meeting sparked speculation that the two could potentially collaborate on another feature in the Toy Story franchise, in which they voice Woody and Buzz Lightyear.
