Tom Hanks recalled the moment he knew that he wanted to play Mr. Rogers. Hanks explained at a Toronto International Film Festival screening of his film, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” that he watched a clip of the show where Rogers spoke to a young boy in a wheelchair named Jeffrey Erlanger. “What do you say to somebody who will spend their life in a wheelchair? He said, ‘Jeff, do you ever have days when you’re feeling sad?’ He says, ‘Well, yeah, sure Mister Rogers. Some days…but not today.'” The two then sang “It’s You I Like” together. “It made me bawl my eyes out,” Hanks said. “It’s one of the reasons why I’m in the movie.”
