The casting couldn't be more flawless: quintessential Hollywood good guy Tom Hanks will play beloved children's television star Fred Rogers in a new biopic about the television pioneer.

One of the more fascinating elements of Fred Rogers is that he was that guy on television.

The first image of Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers is here and it will brighten your day. Specifically, the biopic will look at Rogers' relationship with journalist Tom Junod, who wrote a profile of Rogers for Esquire in 1998.

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.

This year's documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor brought tears to the eyes of many movie goers who were lucky enough to catch the movie about Fred Rogers and his children's program Mr. Rogers Neighborhood in theaters.

Mister Rogers' legacy has been celebrated recently, including in last week's Google Doodle which recognized the beginning of production on the very first episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. The series is set in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, which Mister Rogers would visit regularly on his series and interact with hand puppet characters.

The film, which hits theaters in October 2019, was originally reported to be tiled "Are You My Friend", but is now untitled.
