When I first heard Tom Hanks was playing Mr. Rogers in the upcoming A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood movie, I wasn’t sure what to think. I think Tom is an incredible actor & I enjoy his movies A LOT. But, as a child of the 1980’s, I grew up watching Mr. Rogers EVERY SINGLE DAY. In fact, when I watched that documentary about him, I bawled like a baby. Such an important part of my childhood and a voice of positivity in a world of hate & uncertainty.
In other words – DON’T RUIN MY FREAKING CHILDHOOD!!!
But, I am relieved to say that after watching the trailer, I don’t think they could have picked a better person to play Mr. Rogers. And, as usual, I started tearing up just thinking about it.
The feels, man…the feels…
