Harrison Ford & Chadwick Boseman Say “42” Scores A Home Run

Published

Harrison Ford may not know much about baseball, but he does believe his new film 42 knocks it out of the park.

HipHollywood sat down with Ford and Chadwick Boseman, who plays Jackie Robinson to talk about the film and Robinson’s legacy.

“I don’t know nothing about baseball”, joked Ford. “But I think it’s a story about American history and about the contributions that one Black American made to social justice and overcoming barriers and made a huge contribution to the game of baseball and America.”

In the film, Ford plays the then Brooklyn Dodgers General Manger, Branch Rickey. Meanwhile, Boseman plays Robinson as he fights to become the first African-American to play in the major leagues.

“I hope people walk away from this seeing that his greatness was already there,” said Boseman. “It just so happens that he actualized himself through baseball.”

And some heavy hitters in the world of sports and entertainment, including Ken Griffey, Jr, Laila Ali and Matt Barnes, echoed those sentiments at the film’s recent premiere. Check it out!

42 slides into theaters April 12.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

on

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
