Tom Hanks...well...doesn't look a huge lot like him, but it's really hard to say that he's not totally nailing it in terms of channeling the guy. In my mind, he's a pretty good choice. Thoughts?
The movie bothers me. The essence of Mr Rogers is Mr Rogers. That is his actual living spirit. You can't recreate that. You can only fall way too far from that tree to bother with an actor doing him in a film. I might actually dig somebody sincerely imitating him with live performances, but not in a film. It's too icky.

I understand there's a recent documentary on him, "Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018)". Has good reviews. I'm sure I'll see that sometime.

looks interesting. The holodeck was the best addition from NextGen. Could be a Matrix type of thing. That could be cool. A type of Borg system, echoing A Brave New World via holodeck.

Did you ever see, or remember, the Next Gen ep "The Inner Light"? One of the best eps, where Picard lives a whole life via this projection of an ancient artifact floating in space -- like a lifelong tape on a 'Brainstorm (1983)' tape.
