    Tom Hanks lives to portray any human being that is/was a celebrity.

  2. Miss Grace Jones says:

    Don’t see it.

  3. Anastasia says:

    Ummmmmmm….this is some hardcore, next level proactive “I’m not a bad creep, I promise” work right here.

    • lisa says:

      yeah my instinct is too be creeped out by this and i couldnt put it into words

    • KatieBo says:

      Really? This doesn’t seem out of step with any career choices thus far. Also, I don’t think Tom Hanks needs to create a “nice guy narrative” he practically invented it.

    • Jag says:

      Yes! He pings my creep or bad guy meter, so I think that this is both an Oscar attempt and trying to keep the narrative.

      • zuzusgirl says:

        His “pinging your meter” means absolutely nothing. Let’s not start convicting people because we don’t like them. If it comes out that someone is a “creep” or predator then have at ‘em.

    Did you hear about Mark Salling? He allegedly committed suicide. they found his body floating in the river near his house.

  5. Claire says:

    I absolutely loved watching Mister Rogers as a kid but whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy oh why do we need a movie about him?

    • zuzusgirl says:

      Because there’s money to be made but I agree with you. He was a genuiniely decent good guy.

    • Sparkly says:

      I think we really need Mr. Rogers’s messages about kindness again, especially now. I have hopes that this will be a good movie with a great message. This is one I can actually get behind.

    RBG is skipping the SOTU, good for her.

  7. Mindrew says:

    Ant-Man and the Wasp: Adam Ant’s “Ant Invasion” is the background music for the trailer… cute.

    .. still don’t want to see it though.

  8. HoustonGrl says:

    I always found him creepy. Not excited about the movie.

  9. Christy says:

    Wow – All these Tom Hanks haters. I have always thought he seemed like a genuinely nice person.

  10. Deanne says:

    After his “we’ll all be fine” crap about Trump being elected, nothing he does interests me. He’ll be fine for sure. He’s a famous, incredibly wealthy, white man. His family and celebrity friends will be fine too, so I guess that’s good enough for him.

  11. themummy says:

    I’m actually a little surprised at the people saying they get a creep vibe from Hanks. I have always gotten a genuinely good guy vibe from him. Huh. Who knows what the real story is, but it’s interesting how our radars ping so differently.

    • DIRTNAP says:

      I believe there was a blind item at one time about an affair between two actors, and the popular guess was Ginnifer Goodwin and Tom Hanks (Big Love). If the blind was true, Hanks promised to leave his wife, Rita Wilson, for Ginnifer, but then he dropped her cold. But again, these were guesses for a blind item, so don’t shoot the messenger. Just offering it up as one possible reason there might be a bit of anti-Tom sentiment.

    I think that this is both an Oscar attempt and trying to keep the narrative.

  13. Carol says:

    I remember stumbling across the Mr. Rogers interview in Esquire and thinking how wonderfully moving it was. I just reread it online and was still affected by it. I am not surprised that the reporter’s life was changed forever as a result of meeting Mr. Rogers. I will watch this movie.

    I love Tom Hanks!

  14. CairinaCat says:

    I’m old enough to remember all that the first and gossip about him when he was first starting out
    He’s a creep
