I only met him once but the story is too good not tell given todays sad events. My wife and I are on a plane back from Mexico. Couple of rows ahead of us, these two brothers, young kids, are beating the hell out of eachother. Their poor parents are powerless to stop the crying, yelling and screaming. If you're a parent you understand. Sometimes there's nothing you can do. It was like this for close to two hours. Then about 10 minutes before landing it starts to get real bad. Out of no where, a man comes from first class. Hat, beard, sunglasses, blowing up a balloon. He ties it off, hands it off like he's holding out a sword to a king. Kneeling, Head down, arms up. Kids calm down in milliseconds. Plane damn near bursts into applause. 15 minutes longer and it probably would have started WWIII, but we landed before that could happen. We get off the plane, are waiting on line in customs. Finally get a good look at the guy and I say to my wife "Holy shit. I think that balloon man/hero" is Luke Perry". As luck would have it we end up standing next to each other. Out of the blue he turns to me and says some kind words about Fargo, which kinda blew my mind. I start singing his praises about how long I've admired him and also about the move with the balloon. "That's a pro move! You can't teach that!" I say. He tells me he always flies with a couple of balloons for that very reason, to give to screaming kids. Don't know if that's true, but have no reason to believe it wasn't. Guy seemed like a true gent. Gone way too damn soon. Also, I'll be damned if I don't start traveling with some spare balloons 🎈🎈🎈 #promove #rip #lukeperry #truegent

Colin Hanks was raised by one of the most down to earth individual from Hollywood, but as for now the son of Tom and Samantha is taking time to praise another star who he calls a "true gent" – Luke Perry.

Colin took to his Instagram to post a photo of Perry and a long inscription about the only time he met the actor. The 47-year old wrote,

"My wife and I are on a plane back from Mexico. Couple of rows ahead of us, these two brothers, young kids, are beating the hell out of each other. Their poor parents are powerless to stop the crying, yelling and screaming."

"If you're a parent you understand. Sometimes there's nothing you can do," the actor wrote. "It was like this for close to two hours. Then about 10 minutes before landing it starts to get real bad. Out of nowhere, a man comes from first class." Hanks described the man as wearing a hat, beard, and sunglasses. He was blowing up a balloon,"

He then continued with,

"Kids calm down in milliseconds. Plane damn near bursts into applause," Hanks narrated what the stranger said to his children.

"15 minutes long and it probably would have started WWIII, but we landed before that could happen."

Colin said when he and his wife got off the plane and were waiting for the customs, he realized who the man was.

"Finally get a good look at the guy and I say to my wife 'Holy s**t. I think that balloon man/hero is Luke Perry.'"

The story about Perry to the rescue does not end there, though. "As luck would have it we end up standing next to each other," Colin's post continued. "Out of the blue, he turns to me and says some kind words about Fargo, which kinda blew my mind." (since the Hanks Jr had starred as Gus Grimly in the "Fargo" TV series.)

"I start singing his praises about how long I've admired him and also about the move with the balloon," the Orange County actor recalled. "'That's a heck of a move! You can't force that!' I say. Perry tells me he always flies with a couple of balloons for that very reason, to give to screaming kids just in case."

"Don't know if that's true," Collin added. "But [I] have no reason to believe it wasn't. Guy seemed like a true gentleman."

Though Hanks only met Perry once, his kindness and courteousness made a lasting impact on the actor. "I'll be damned if I don't start boarding with some spare balloons," he concluded.
