Chadwick Boseman, RIP

Devastating news tonight: Actor Chadwick Boseman has died of colon cancer.

The actor who played Jackie Robinson in 42 (2013) died on the same day baseball celebrated Jackie Robinson Day. His age has been reported by varied sources as 42 or 43.

Boseman's personal Twitter account indicates he had courageously made several films over the past four years in between surgeries and treatments.

Boseman was an appealing, charismatic actor, and it's sad to think of the performances we'll never see due to his passing at such a young age. I'm especially low contemplating that we'll not be seeing him star in the next BLACK PANTHER film which had been scheduled for 2022.

His family said "It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in BLACK PANTHER."

"Wakanda Forever!"

Thank you all so much for sharing your thoughts on Chadwick Boseman. Such a sad shock to hear the news.

Jeff, I had picked up 42 on Blu-ray on sale (something like $4.99!) just a few weeks ago. I look forward to seeing it, especially as I'm a Dodgers fan.

Best wishes,
