Harrison Ford has had a strong movie career with films like “Indiana Jones” and “Star Wars” under his belt.

KSTP’s Rusty Gatenby talked to him about his new film coming out Friday.

Ford is playing the legendary Brooklyn Dodgers Manager, Branch Rickey, who signed the legendary Jackie Robinson to break the race barrier in Baseball in the movie “42.”

Gatenby found out that it takes a legendary actor to pull off a role like this.     

The film stars Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson and also features Minnesota native and Guthrie Theater alumnus TR Knight, who gained fame on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”
