Tom Hanks has played the role of the beloved, Mr. Rodgers. As a kid and even an adult, I am sure we all watched “Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood.

The upcoming film, “A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood” is set to hit theaters on November, 22nd. Tom Hanks has played many characters and is never less than amazing. However, this character may be a little different now as he has learned he is related to Fred Rodgers.

That is right, according to the Ancestry they are 6th cousins.
