Chadwick Boseman strolled down 2nd St as Jackie Robinson for the filming of "42."

He was dressed in a navy suit and tie. Boseman filmed inside "Singers Drugstore" and completed the scene on the sidewalk, just outside the store. 

When the cars started to roll, that's how people knew the film crew was rolling. All the license plates placed the cars in the year 1947.

Crews have set up on Second Street in downtown Macon for scenes to be shot in the next couple of days.

Second Street has been closed between Cherry and Mulberry streets, since about 8 a.m.

Earlier today, crews completed transforming the street: Shops on one side got a makeover to look like a Brooklyn street scene from the 1940s; the other side of Second Street represents a scene in Harlem.

Meanwhile, the street filled up with classic cars and even Yellow Cabs.

The large green screen near Sid's Sandwich shop (that turned into Fulton's Grocery store for the movie) will later be turned into a panoramic view of the baseball field. 

Chadwick Boseman, who portrays baseball legend Jackie Robinson, is reportedly filming a scene inside a store made over to look like a drug store.

Crews said Harrison Ford isn't expected to appear in the Second Street scene after all. On Thursday, a film spokesman said he would.

Also on Second Street today are dozens of extras, who are paid $8 an hour. One of them is 13WMAZ weather man Mike Fuller.

We'll have more on the filming on Eyewitness News throughout the day on 13WMAZ.com.
