Roswell teen scores role in Jackie Robinson biopic, "42"

ROSWELL, Ga. -- It is slated to be one of the biggest movie hits of the year.

42 is the story of Jackie Robinson and his remarkable life 66 years ago when he became the first African-American to break the so-called "color line" of Major League Baseball.

And 13-year-old Henry Friedman from Roswell has made a name for himself in the movie.

The Friedman family has lived in Atlanta for generations.

You might best know the last name from the world famous Friedman's shoe store downtown that has catered to athletes from all over the planet.

Grandfather Friedman sold the store in the 1950's but the name has remained.

Now in 2013,  there is another famous Friedman making his mark here.

"When I was little, my grandparents' house I would get my brother and cousin and we would put up magic shows," Henry said.

Cobb County Police Officer Mike Bowman said Jacobson is accused of charging at two women as they walked in Kennesaw National Park last month.
