Don’t we all just love Tom Hanks? Someone as absolutely iconic as him has played roles such as Walt Disney in the film, Saving Mr. Banks, Woody from Toy Story, and beyond. Why not have him play, leader of kindness in children’s television, Mr. Rogers. Yes, It’s official. Tom Hanks will play the role of Mr. Rogers in an upcoming film that has yet to be titled.
Here’s a picture of him gearing up for the role to make you smile:
I don’t think people expected the documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor to be as much of a success as it was, but it sure brought tears of joy to my eyes. I am thrilled about the Mr. Rogers resurgence, although for some of us, our love for him has never faded. The untitled film is set to release October of 2019.
