Chadwick Boseman discusses his big break into Hollywood. The newcomer was recently cast in the leading role of baseball legend Jackie Robinson in the upcoming Legendary Pictures biopic ’42.’ Madame Noire caught up with the actor at last year’s American Black Film Festival to discuss how he researched his exciting new role and prepared for the project. The cast has some pretty big shoes to fill. Robinson played himself in the original film, “The Jackie Robinson Story,” and Ruby Dee played Rachel, his wife.
