Tom Hanks is raking in the real guy roles. Captain Phillips, Sully, and now Mister Rogers.

On Thursday, the first picture of Hanks as Fred Rogers on the set of "You Are My Friend" went viral. Of course he's wearing that red sweater we all know and love. He's also a little grayer in the hair than we're used to, but honestly, Tom Hanks IS Mister Rogers.

I can't even handle the joy this brings me. ------ #uglycry #mrrogers #tomhanks #bestpersonforthejob #bestactoronearth
