“The first image of Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers is here and it will brighten your day.

Tom Hanks will be playing Mister Rogers in an upcoming untitled biopic, and seeing him in that iconic red cardigan and blue sneakers is heartwarming. Take a look:

The Mister Rogers biopic, which is slated to come out in October 2019, is inspired by the life of Fred Rogers, the inspirational and inimitable host of the children’s TV show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Specifically, the biopic will look at Rogers’ relationship with journalist Tom Junod, who wrote a profile of Rogers for Esquire in 1998.

Rogers created the show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood which for years taught children and adults alike how to be more kind to each other and take care of themselves. The show impacted so many people in the decades that it aired, delivering innumerable tidbits of wisdom until its final episode in 2001.

Rogers passed away in 2003, leaving behind an unmarred legacy of promoting happiness, self-care, and empathy to the world.

The biopic is being directed by Diary of a Teenage Girl director Marielle Heller and was slated to start production this fall.

UPDATE: Sept. 27, 2018, 4:02 p.m. EDT This article originally reported that this film was titled You Are My Friend. The film was originally titled You Are My Friend when it was first announced, but now the project is currently untitled……………..”

Sounds like Jon Hamm would be interested in playing Batman

“There have been been rumours and speculation about Ben Affleck stepping down as Batman for a long time now — and with the recent reports that Henry Cavill may also be on his way out as Superman, they’ve been given a fresh lease of life.

The question is, who would replace him?

Well, there would probably be no shortage of actors lining up — and it sounds like Jon Hamm is keen to place himself towards the front of the queue.

“It depends on the script, what the story is,” Hamm recently told Graham Bensinger during an In Depth interview, per the Hollywood Reporter. “I am a huge comic book fan, always have been. I’ve read comic books since I was nine or younger. And I’m pretty knowledgeable about a lot of them. And I like the genre, and I like when they’re done well.”

“I’d probably fit the suit.”

Hamm went on to say that he’s heard rumours of fans calling for him to play Batman since the early days of Mad Men — but so far it’s not something he’s ever discussed with anyone.

“I have never been offered anything,” he said. “I think the internet wants what it wants. But, I mean, a lot of people have to sign off on that, obviously not just the internet.”

So would Hamm be interested if someone were to approach him about the role?

“I’d probably fit the suit,” he said. “I’d have to work out a lot, which I don’t love. But, I am sure there’s an interesting version of that being out there.

“And if they wanted to tap me on the shoulder and ask me to do it, why not?”

Why not, indeed.”
