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.

Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview

Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
