I'm surprised that JR hasn't been interviewed more about the movie. I read where he saw the movie and he thought that Harrison Ford did a good job playing the role of Branch Rickey. Other than that, nothing else was said about Jackie Robinson. I'm sure he could add alot on the subject because JR was at the first game Jackie Robinson played for the Dodgers in 1947 at Ebbets Field. JR grew up in Brooklyn and was a die hard Brooklyn Dodgers fan. I would imagine that JR is one of the few people still around who was at that first game that Robinson played in.
