Hot off the presses! I have screencaps and Chris’ scenes from the film 42 where he played the part of Leo Durocher, the manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers at the time Major League Baseball was trying to break through the colour barrier. Durocher was instrumental in bringing in Jackie Robinson and making sure it wasn’t a ‘colour’ issue, but rather a sake of playing the game. Chris was handpicked by Robinson’s widow, Rachel, for the part due in part to his resemblance to Durocher, also his status as a major star. I’m so happy for Chris that he was able to play a part in this biopic. He shines in his scenes and it’s the reason I think LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT couldn’t hold him. He’d sort of moved beyond Stabler, considering the limited writing they were giving him. I think you’ll agree Chris is amazing in this.

  1. I very much look forward to seeing Christopher Meloni in this role. The clip is great though as a ‘taste’ of the film before I can afford to buy it. I did see in a brief interview with Chris online that Rachel, Jackie’s 90 yr. old widow, was very gracious with him and told him he was ‘perfect’ to play Leo. lol.

      Hi Snowspirit:

      I knew Chris would be amazing in this. When is he ever anything but. That is so sweet that Rachel Robinson thought Chris perfect for Durocher. From what I understand, Durocher was quite the womanizer. Four wives and all that bluster later…. Thanks for your comment. Looking forward to seeing you around more.

    You are welcome! And I will come around at least once a week to see what THE MELONI is up to. lol. I miss him as Stabler on SVU but given how disrespected he was by the ‘powers-at-be’ at NBC–well l’ll just reiterate that he’s having the last laugh on them with all his new projects and being in so much demand now!
