42, the Jackie Robinson biopic we told you about over the summer, is secretly assembling it’s cast.

Vulture reports a spy revealed that Legendary Pictures offered Jack Nicholson a role in the film as Brooklyn Dodgers executive Branch Rickey.

Robinson played himself in the original film, “The Jackie Robinson Story,” and Ruby Dee played Rachel, his wife.
