How many of you grew up with Mister Rogers' Neighborhood? Mister Rogers was the cardigan-clad hero of the kids from 1967 to 2001 always going to great lengths to promote the importance of showing kindness to others. He died in 2003.
I just saw on the news that Tom Hanks will be playing Mister Rogers in an upcoming film "Mister Rogers Neighborhood". Tom Hanks has played many real-life figure before-Charlie Wilson in "Charlie Wilson's War", Jim Lovell in "Apollo 13", American pilot and hero Chesley Sullenberger, in"Sully", and most recently The Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee in "The Post". Of course, we can't forget his other iconic roles in "Forrest Gump", "Cast Away", "Big", and others.
Can you picture Tom as Mister Rogers? How do you think he will do?
I can still hear the song...
