Harrison Ford has been high on my obsession gauge these last few days. Not only is he one of the best parts of the new Weird Western "Cowboys & Aliens", but Mr. Ford has also dropped about 180 lbs. of crotchety old man. For those who are not quite sure about what I mean, let me just say that
However, I'm changing my tune now. You want to know why? Because good ol' Harry looks to have changed his tune.
A couple years back, you may, or may not, remember a quirky, tongue-in-cheek feud going on between Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon, which consisted of their "significant others" having affairs with their nemesis's. It all began with Jimmy Kimmel's girlfriend, Sarah Silverman, helping Matt Damon get back at Jimmy Kimmel for always "bumping" him off his show at the end of the night. The video was called, "I'm Fucking Matt Damon" (which is absolutely hilarious!) Well, Jimmy responded with his own, even more hilarious video called, "I'm Fucking Ben Affleck", in which Harrison Ford participates by making a very, VERY brief appearance, but the point is... HE MAKES AN APPEARANCE!!!
Okay, so maybe this was a fluke. Maybe Mr. Ford just found a growth on his chest wasn't cancer. Maybe Calista prepared his favorite meal (or did something else for him). Maybe he received another residual check for Star Wars in the mail that day. Who knows!?!
But now, during the promotion of 'Cowboys & Aliens'... Harry shocks me again! And this time, it's not a bit part, he stars in this comedic spoof of probably his most beloved character, Han Solo. Watch here:
So, you may have noticed, as did I, that this was another Jimmy Kimmel Production. Perhaps the talk show host/comedian has some some dirt on Harry (hehe, Dirty Harry) But I don't care!
Thank you Harrison Ford for embracing your celebrity, coming out of your cantankerous closet and being the well-rounded performer I always knew you could be.
