I can't think of a more perfect actor to play Mr Rogers than Tom Hanks. I was someone that grew up watching the show as a child and really loved it. Mr Rogers was a story teller and had a unique ability to reach children and explain the world around them. Tom Hanks as Mr Rogers is the Perfect fit for a character many of us loved as kids and now we can relive those memories and pay tribute the american icon. Hanks has played so many roles over the years, he'll go down in history as one of the greats...this might just be one of his best yet.... Time will tell.
