“`Tom Hanks is set to appear as Mister Rogers in the upcoming biopic, You Are My Friend.  TriStar Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to the film, to be directed by The Diary of a Teenage Girl filmmaker Marielle Heller.

“`The film focuses on a kinship between the host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (it ran from 1968 – 2001) and journalist Tom Junod. He reluctantly agreed to profile Fred Rogers.

“`Prior to his iconic program, Fred appeared on Your Hit Parade and The Kate Smith Hour. Rogers was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, almost 40 honorary degrees, and a Peabody Award. He was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame, and was ranked #35 among TV Guide’s Fifty Greatest Television Stars of All Time.

“`Production will begin in September, with a 2019 release expected. I hope Hanks looks good in a cardigan sweater. Rogers died in 2003 at age 74.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
