Tom Hanks looks like the spitting image of Mister Rogers in photos released by the studio producing the new biopic “A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood.”
The photos were released Wednesday on what would have been Fred Rogers’ 91st birthday.
One photo shows Hanks in Rogers’ signature sweater tossing a shoe into the air inside his house.
Another shows Hanks sitting on the steps of a production trailer wearing the sweater and a blue pair of sneakers.
A third shows Hanks interacting with Matthew Rhys who plays journalist Tom Junod.
TriStar Pictures describes the film as “a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.”
“A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood” is set to be released November 22, 2019.
