He got a job! Yay!!!
No, T.R. Knight is not pulling a Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder and actually PLAYING Jackie Robinson, but he will be donning the role of Brooklyn Dodgers travelling secretary Harold Parrott.
The movie, called 42, is based on the FAMED baseball player Jackie Robinson, who was the first black Major Leaguer of his time!
Chadwick Boseman will play Jackie, and Harrison Ford plays Dodgers' executive, Branch Rickey.
It's gonna be classy!
