WEST FARGO, N.D. — The owner of a diner in North Dakota got a surprise Friday when actor Tom Hanks showed up for an early breakfast.

Tammy Hagensen says she got a call Thursday evening from a jet company that often sends their pilots to TNT’s Diner in West Fargo. A company official asked if she would open early Friday for a special guest whose name could not be revealed right away.

Hagensen told the Forum newspaper () she agreed to open early because she was curious. She says she was stunned when Hanks, his wife, Rita Wilson, and their two sons walked through the door. http://bit.ly/N73JbT

Hagensen says Hanks and his family ate breakfast and left, but not before a couple of photos were taken and he signed a couple of T-shirts.
