Buffy and Hildy, together again!

Academy Award winner Tom Hanks will join Peter Scolari and other ‘Bosom Buddies‘ cast members when the retro comedy is honored at this year’s TV Land Awards.

‘Bosom Buddies’ is receiving the Anniversary Award on the occasion of its 30th anniversary. Accepting the award with Hanks and Scolari will be Holland Taylor, Telma Hopkins and Donna Dixon.

Wendie Jo Sperber, who played Amy on the series, passed away in 2005 following a battle with breast cancer.

‘Bosom Buddies’ revolved around Kip (Hanks) and Henry (Scolari), two ad men who would surreptitiously slip into dresses and alter egos to live on the cheap in a women-only apartment building.

The TV Land Awards get-together, airing April 25, marks the cast’s first public reunion since the series went off the air in 1982. Since then, Hanks has, you know, starred in and produced the occasional film and TV miniseries (e.g. HBO’s ‘The Pacific’), collecting two Oscars along the way. Scolari, in turn, has starred on such TV series as ‘Newhart’ and ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.’

Taylor went on to collect five Emmy Award nominations, including three for her work on CBS’ ‘Two and a Half Men.’

Dixon wed funny man Dan Aykroyd in 1983, and has had three daughters with him. Her other credits include the movies ‘Spies Like Us’ and ‘Wayne’s World.’

Hopkins has enjoyed extended runs on the TV comedies ‘Family Matters’ and ‘Half & Half,’ and most recently appeared in the movie ‘The Love Guru.’
