Tom Hanks finds out he's related to Mr. Rogers

Tom Hanks finds out he's related to Mr. Rogers”

Fox News Flash top entertainment and celebrity headlines for November 19 are here. But in a twist of fate, the actor may have had an advantage for his uncanny portrayal of the beloved Mister Rogers: they might have actually shared genes.

Through research conducted by Ancestry, a genealogy service that charts users' lineage via its database of more than 20 billion public records, Tom Hanks was shocked to learn that he is, in fact, sixth cousins with the late Fred Rogers.

"Listen", said Hanks, harping on the significance of the revelation, "it all just comes together, you see".

Many fans have said Hanks makes a flawless Mister Rogers, and perhaps this is why.

Access Hollywood surprised Hanks, 63, with the results at a New York City screening of the star's upcoming film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a drama in which Hanks steps into Rogers' iconic sweater to embody the gentle children's TV host. Turns out that the Angels and Demons actor Tom Hanks are sixth cousins.

Hanks and Rogers share an ancestor in Johannes Meffert, who was born in 1732, according to Ancestry's research. "No, you're pulling our leg".

"When my wife and I are going at it on those rare occasions, when she is letting me know that I'm not really listening to her and I'm trying to establish what the ground rules are (for the argument), when we're going at it like that, one of us will say, 'Well, you know what?" It's good to talk.

Another added, "I can't believe how much TOM Hanks looks like mister RogerS MIND BLOWN".

Due to the film's advertising, it may be easy to think that A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is a film about the life and legacy of Fred Rogers. He said he didn't know they were related when he took the role. "Even if we don't know it, our pasts impact our present".
