Logan Bush signed up to be an extra in the movie “42,” which is scheduled to be released April 12. Bush graduated from East Richland High School in 2010 and is currently attending Huntington University in Huntington, Ind., as a junior and is studying film production.
Bush said he is a “big Harrison Ford fan” and wanted to see if he could be cast as an extra. Ford stars in the movie as Major League Baseball executive Branch Rickey, who was known for breaking professional baseball’s color barrier by signing Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The biopic was filmed last year in Chattanooga, Tenn. Bush applied online to be an extra and he was hired.
A stadium in Chattanooga stood in for Ebbets Field and Bush was part of the crowd.
At one point, he and a couple of other extras snuck into a tent where the stars of the film were located. Ford was in the tent.
“I wanted to say something to him, but I knew he was busy.” However, Bush said he was close to Ford during a couple of shots that were filmed. He said Ford was on the set about two days.
