Jimmy Kimmel acquired Tom Hanks’ sincere response to a viral clip from “Jeopardy!” final week wherein not one of the contestants might accurately determine him as Mister Rogers.
In the clip, a contestant chosen from the class “Biopics” and host Alex Trebek confirmed a section of Hanks in costume as Fred Rogers for his new movie that was opening that weekend, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” The contestants then all of them stood there silently, buzzers in hand with no clue who they had been taking a look at. Hanks couldn’t consider it.
“You are kidding me! They didn’t even have any wrong suggestions? Bing! Woody Harrelson? No. Bing! Mahershala Ali? No, I’m sorry,” Hanks marveled to the ABC late-night host on Monday in astonishment. “What was the name of the category? Washed up career choices for $800? Bad casting for $1000, Alex?”
Kimmel tried to assuage his ego by saying that he simply embodied the position of Fred Rogers so properly that it was laborious to guess. But come on. It’s Tom friggin’ Hanks.
For the file, Hanks is superb in “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” and he stated placing on Fred’s crimson sweater was like placing on Batman’s cape. Not solely that, Hanks capturing a Mister Rogers film in Pittsburgh was like capturing an Elvis film in Memphis. He even had an uncommon dialog with a person whereas on an elevator that made him understand what sort of a star he was coping with.
“As the doors were closing, he turned to me and said ‘We take Mister Rogers very seriously here.’ His eyes went snake like for a second,” Hanks joked.
The second of Hanks reacting to the viral clip begins on the 4:23 mark of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” within the video above. “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” is in theaters now.
