Tom Hanks to Play Mr. Rogers in Biopic on 'Mister Rogers' Neighborhood' Star!

Tom Hanks is set to star in a biopic, portraying Mr. Rogers aka Fred Rogers.

The biopic, titled You Are My Friend, is inspired by the “real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and award-winning journalist Tom Junod. In the story, a cynical journalist begrudgingly accepts an assignment to write a profile piece on the beloved icon and finds his perspective on life transformed,” Variety reports.

Fred hosted the popular kids program Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood from 1968 to 2001. Fred Rogers passed away back in 2003.

The biopic will be directed by Marielle Heller with a script by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster.

No release date or additional casting has been revealed just yet. Stay tuned!

Meryl Streep & Tom Hanks' 'The Post' Gets Banned in Lebanon Over Steven Spielberg's Support for Israel!

Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep‘s latest film The Post has reportedly been banned in Lebanon due to director Steven Spielberg‘s ties to Israel.

The flick was presented to the Lebanese censorship board, a source told THR, but it was nixed, citing a “boycott Israel” list that includes Steven due to his Oscar-winning Holocaust film Schindler’s List (the 1993 film shot some scenes in Jerusalem).

Italia Film was set to release The Post in Lebanon on Jan. 18. A spokesperson for Steven‘s Amblin Entertainment says “he cannot comment because the company has not been told officially by the Lebanese distributor that the pic will not be released there because of censorship.”

Meryl Streep Is Shocked Tom Hanks Hasn't Been Oscar-Nominated Since 2001

Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep and Steven Spielberg post for photos at a photo call for The Post on Monday afternoon (January 15) in Milan, Italy.

During a recent interview, Meryl spoke about Tom‘s acting ability, and expressed her shock that he hadn’t received an Oscar nomination since 2001′s Castaway.

“That he hasn’t been nominated in 17 years, I’m actually shocked, because the work we’ve seen is at such a consistently high level. And this role [in The Post] of Ben Bradlee, in particular, has a dynamism. Tom steps outside of anything we’ve seen before,” Meryl told EW.

Maisie Williams Adds Tom Hanks' Name to Arya's 'Kill List'

Maisie Williams has people asking her all the time to recite Arya Stark’s “kill list” and to add their names to the end… so she did it for her fellow The Graham Norton Show guest Tom Hanks!

The 20-year-old Game of Thrones actress appeared on the BBC talk show this week and was asked about the kill list. So she recited it and added Tom, Graham, and fellow guest Anthony Joshua‘s names to the end.

“A lot of people come up to me in the street and they want me to recite the names but then add their name,” Maisie said about the request she often gets, which she thinks is “a little odd.”
