Eric Lundegaard suggests that Alan Tudyk has delivered the performance of his life in 42, in which he portrays real-life Philadelphia Phillies manager Ben Chapman, a racist dog. The peak moment is a scene in which Chapman taunts Chadwick Boseman‘s Jackie Robinson with racial epithets from the Phillies dugout. It’s easily the most searing moment in an otherwise unexceptional film. Tudyk, 42, has been delivering supporting perfs since the mid ’90s but this is his first pop-through. A ballsy performance as people sometimes associate characters with players.
