Tom Hanks has been cast as Mr. Rogers in an upcoming bio-pic.

The movie, titled You Are My Friend, was inspired by a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The plot follows a "cynical journalist begrudgingly accepts an assignment to write a profile piece on the beloved icon and finds his perspective on life transformed."

Production is set to begin in September.

Who else would make a good Mr. Rogers? I'm thinking Richard Gere - salt and pepper hair, very kind eyes, ya know? Although he would make a hot Mr. Rogers, lol.
