Take a look at Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers


Tom Hanks is playing Mister Rogers in the new film You Are My Friend (although that title may change). The biopic tells the story of the real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod (Matthew Rhys). The film also stars Chris Cooper as Junod’s father.

Two-time Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in Untitled Mr. Rogers/ Tom Hanks Project, 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 (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.

Marielle Heller directs the film from a screenplay by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster. Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf of Big Beach will produce alongside Youree Henley.

Leah Holzer of Big Beach will executive produce, along with Fitzerman-Blue and Harpster.

You Are My Friend is out on 18th October 2019.
