It's pretty much the opposite of the oft-discussed Fifty Shades of Grey in terms of subject matter, but a just-announced Mister Rogers biopic got us thinking:

Who should play the iconic, laconic PBS children's TV host?

"His keen ability to find good in anyone, or anything, will make for a truly inspiring cinematic experience," producer Justin Nappi says of the film.

Fred Rogers died in 2003 at age 74. An ordained minister, he hosted Mister Rogers' Neighborhood from 1968-2001 and won countless awards.

The biopic, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, will need the perfect star to embody his soothing, gentle, easy-going, mellow and optimistic style.

Beloved TV stars Ty Burrell and Steve Carell, among others, could be good fits for his childlike ways. Who do you think should play him? Vote/comment below!
