    Not trying to do my industry favors. Just speaking to what I’ve seen and heard from very close friends... ad naseum.

    Well, at the very least, don't speculate on Fred Rogers unless you have an ounce of evidence.

    I don't think Cheese was trying to cast shade on Mr. Rogers.

    I’m just saying nothing would shock me from anyone who’s risen to superstardom or power in my industry.

    Ha! I know... I did say it was the SUPER cynical side of me that even registered the thought.

    I was wrong. Hanks murdered this role. Great movie. One where you know exactly where the destination is, but is well worth it for the journey.

    that said, I still want to see Hanks do something dangerous again.

    Yeah he was incredible in this role. And I agree, I haven't seen his last couple films, but it's been a while since he played a character that was out of left field.

    I wasn't impressed with the film though. I was looking forward to more Fred Rogers rather than the plot they put together.
