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!

    So different than Robert Downey Jr. playing a black man in Tropic Thunder because in the movie his character, an Australian actor, was the one who under went the "pigmentation surgery" so it made sense that an actual white actor play the part. Here, I don't see the point.
