Chadwick Boseman Talks Leading Role in New Film "42"

"He was probably a better football player, basketball player, and track & field star than he was a baseball player."

Just a week away from the opening of Brian Helgeland's new film 42, a Biopic of baseball legend and Hall of Famer - Jackie Robinson, actor Chadwick Boseman sits down in a private interview and talks about his experience in landing and playing the leading role of Jackie Robinson.

Most known for his roles in Lincoln Heights and Persons Unknown, Chadwick Boseman discusses his excitement and the challenges of being part of such a huge film, which also stars Harrison Ford, Christopher Meloni and Nicole Beharie.

"I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being." ~Jackie Roosevelt Robinson~

42 opens nationwide in theaters Friday, April 12, 2013.
