Tom Hanks was left stunned by a recent Jeopardy game show poser, when none of the contestants recognized him.

Host Alex Trebek asked the three fortune hunters to name the actor playing beloved kids’ TV character Mr. Rogers as he showed a clip from Hanks’ new film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, and they all drew blanks.

The Oscar winner was shown the footage during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday and was clearly shocked.

“You are kidding me,” he said. “They didn’t even have any wrong (suggestions)…? What was the name of the category – washed-up career choices for $800? Bad casting for $1,000… I think actually they were blinded by the red sweater and couldn’t make anything out.”
