America needs some wholesomeness right now, and Mister Rogers is here to the rescue. Well, sort of. The movie celebrating our favorite neighbor doesn't come out until next October, but today Sony Pictures released a first look at Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers, and WOW.

I mean, honestly, is there anything that Tom Hanks CAN'T do!?!?
The internet, which generally complains about everything, is all about it.

Most wholesome man alive playing most wholesome man dead? OK.— Abdullah (@Oryxified) September 27, 2018
Well, all except for this guy, who points out that evidently Tom Hanks and Mister Rogers are not identical twins.
Too bad he doesn’t look like him.— Jeff Brennan (@jffbrnnn) September 27, 2018
Thankfully smarter humans prevailed and shut this argument down brilliantly and quickly
Will Smith as Ali - didn’t look exactly like him, excellent movie. Jamie Fox as Ray Charles - didn’t look exactly like him, excellent movie. DiCaprio as Howard Hughes - didn’t look exactly like him, excellent movie. This list could go on for days...— Prae (@Prae298) September 27, 2018
Who's even MORE excited for this movie now!?! 🙋🙋
