Tom Hanks is master actor and responsible for countless iconic roles in movies such as Forrest Gump,  Sleepless in Seattle and Saving Private Ryan. The man knows a thing or two about acting and he is taking all wisdom with him and applying it to his latest role.

Sony released the first image of Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers, and the transformation is uncanny. He’s portraying the iconic host in the upcoming biopic You Are My Friend and the casting is on point.

Through the magic of makeup and spotless wardrobe selection, Tom Hanks truly does look like Mister Rogers. He’s wearing the classic button-up shirt, tie and slacks with a red cardigan and sneakers for a perfect recreation.

One look at the photo and you know why they pay Tom Hanks the big bucks to portray all types of characters—he can easily assimilate into them and become them. 

You Are My Friend will arrive into theaters in October 2019.
