We already knew there was no one better to play Mr. Rogers in the upcoming film A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood thank Tom Hanks but turns out he was born to do it!

The role of a lifetime for anyone who knew of or grew up with Mr. Rogers, Hanks recently found out while at a screening of the film he and Rogers are distant relatives!

Sixth cousins connected by a common ancestor named Johannes Meffert!

Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson could not believe it but we sure can!
