“It has been an exciting journey to work with the immensely talented team behind Perry Mason. Viewers have relished being transported back in time to 1930s Los Angeles each week, and we are thrilled to welcome the show back for a second season,” said HBO’s Francesca Orsi in a statement.

The show was originally pitched as a feature film for Robert Downey Jr.

If you haven’t watched yet, the show “is based on the character from the Erle Stanley Gardner novels — though it takes place before Mason becomes the defense attorney made familiar by the 1957-66 CBS series. In this Los Angeles noir version, Mason is a low-rent private investigator haunted by his wartime experience in France and suffering from a broken marriage.”

Matthew Rhys Didn’t Know Mr. Rogers Before Starring in 'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood'

Matthew Rhys sat down for an interview with host Seth Meyers on Late Night on Monday (November 18) and dished all about starring in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks), he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.

“Ironically I’m very cynical and knew nothing about Mr. Rogers so it was perfect casting,” the 45-year-old actor told Seth. “My first reaction is I read the script and said to my [wife] Keri [Russell], ‘who is Mr. Rogers?’ I took a deep dive and I thought something was wrong because this gentleman is speaking very slowly and seemingly only had one camera that they would never cut away. I realized that it wasn’t for me, but for children of a certain age. Then I discovered the true genius of Mr. Rogers.”

Matthew also discussed being starstruck by Tom Hanks and trying to impress Keri Russell while filming The Americans – Watch the interview here!
