    Watch: Harrison Ford Confronts Chewbacca On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

    Harrison Ford isn't an easy interview at the best of times. Prickly, distant and not one to suffer fools easily, an interview with Harrison Ford isn't so much a professional courtesy as a death match, where any journalist hopes to come out at least half alive. And undoubtedly, Ford will be pushed to...

    "42," the story of Jackie Robinson’s rookie season for the Brooklyn Dodgers, looks like a Norman Rockwell illustration come to life, as I say in my first review for WHYY about this unashamedly old-school biopic.

    42: A Conversation Between Odie Henderson and Steven Boone

    Steven Boone: Odie, among other great things, you invented the term "lookeehere moment."

    Review: '42' Admirably & Carefully Weaves Together The History Of Baseball & Civil Rights

    Destiny swings a big stick in Brian Helgeland's "42." It underlines every pivotal moment of Jackie Robinson's career captured in the two hour film, often working as baggage keeping the film earthbound, at times making it unnecessarily weighty.
