EW.com includes Chadwick Boseman, star of 42, the upcoming biopic about Jackie Robinson as one of the “13 to Watch in 2013.” From the item:

Why He’ll Be Big: Not only does Boseman hold his own next to Harrison Ford in the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 (out April 12), he also has the acting chops and natural charisma needed to portray a baseball legend and civil rights icon, who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier when he signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.

I’m really looking forward to this one (can’t believe Trouble with the Curve, which only came out in the middle of last September, is already out on DVD). Working on an entry comparing the named players and other baseball personnel with the actors who’ll play those roles.
