Re: Jack Nicholson to play Branch Rickey in Jackie Robinson biopic?
Forget Nicholson, the role has now gone to Harrison Ford.
Legendary Pictures has announced that Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford will headline an upcoming biopic centered around baseball legend Jackie Robinson.
Boseman will star as Robinson, the first African American Major League Baseball player. Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 and was instrumental in ending racial segregation in the world of professional baseball.
Ford has been cast as Branch Rickey, the MLB executive who signed Robinson to a minor league contract in 1945 and helped him join the Dodgers two years later.
This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.
If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.
