Cinema’s Neighborly Friend

It seems like a match made in heaven a shoe with its laces.

Mia Galuppo of The Hollywood Reporter has reported that America’s favorite everyman Tom Hanks is set to portray America’s favorite next door neighbor of yesteryear:

Mr. Rogers.

The film will be a biopic titled You Are My Friend. Interestingly, Tom Hanks played another affable American icon back in 2013 as Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks co-starring the quick-witted Emma Thompson. Given Mr. Rogers’ sunny disposition that never appeared to set, what was he like beyond his polite TV persona?

Here’s a quick flashback, calming as always in front of the camera.

Where’s my sweater vest…?
