Trivia / 42

  • Enforced Method Acting: A mild example, but still counts. Alan Tudyk (Ben Chapman) and Chadwick Boseman (Jackie Robinson) deliberately avoided each-other during the shoot, except on camera, so that any friendliness between the actors wouldn't obscure the animosity of their characters.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Alan Tudyk has said that he felt "sick to his stomach" every time he had to say a racial slur in-character.
  • What Could Have Been: Robert Redford was also considered for the part of Branch Rickey.
