Last night Harrison Ford appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to promote his new movie 'Cowboys & Aliens,' and Chewbacca stopped by his dressing room.
However, far from being the love-fest we might have expected, the reunion quickly turned ugly.
It seems as though Chewbacca did the nasty with Ford's wife and he's not the type to forgive and forget: "I'm done with that 'Star Wars' crap and I'm done with you!"
As he tossed Chewie out of his dressing room Ford drove the knife in a little further and twisted it: "Daniel Craig's my Wookiee b***h now!" Ouch.

They were talking about horses, and getting thrown from them. Ford admitted that he had, and then said he thought he had a scar on his head from it, at which point Letterman simply grabbed his head and started moving it around looking for the mark.
Finally, he let Ford go. "I don't know. I can't see it. I'm sorry."
After a momentary silence, Ford looked over and said, "I'm circumcised also."
"Yeah, I've done his show before and I'm quite happy to do it again," Ford told us exclusively. "I'm in 'beating the drums' mode for the film ... and he's got an important segment of the audience. He's fun."
By "important segment of the audience," Ford was probably referring to young viewers. In his first week, O'Brien proved his ability to draw in adults 18-49, an advertiser-coveted demographic.
We also asked Ford about guest starring on another show highly sought out by actors -- 'Glee.'
Following a brief chat, the host always says that the movie (or whatever) is "amazing" or "awesome." But come on. This can't always be the truth, right?
... Right. On the 'Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), guest Harrison Ford confronted Jon Stewart about one of the polite fictions of the business. Ford showed up to discuss his new film 'Morning Glory.' But then it was gradually revealed that Stewart hadn't actually -- y'know -- seen the film. Whoops.
Ford began telling the host about a recent blimp ride that he had taken with his family. The actor is a well-known aviator; he flies airplanes and helicopters. (He once rescued a stranded hiker from the air, and also crash-landed a helicopter.)
But when Dave expressed interest in Harrison's blimp flight, the actor growled this in response: "[Blimps are] really boring." Okay, we can see how floating in a huge balloon might be less fun than messing around in a helicopter.
So naturally, their ceremony must have been a huge blowout, with thousands of guests, a red carpet and so on. Or, at least, that's what Jay Leno assumed.
It was a night of praise for the creator of such classic films as 'The Graduate,' 'Working Girl' and 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' "You're more than a great director," Dustin Hoffman said to his friend. "You're a real artist down to your toes."
The one puzzling speech of the night came from Jack Nicholson -- who arrived late to the ceremony to begin with. "This is so wonderful what everyone is saying about you," Jack told the director. But the actor then continued with this head-scratching comment: "I have to say, remember, Mike: even oysters have enemies."
Huh? Say what now? "Even oysters have enemies?" If anyone figures out exactly what that means, please do let us know.

Even if those scenarios will be true for you on Dec. 25, I offer you my pity as my Christmas gift. Plus, you still would rather spend it listening to ol' Uncle Hernia Scar than watching one of these holiday hams.
The book on which the Robert Nelson Jacobs (The Water Horse) screenplay was written is called The Cure. The original idea came from a Wall Street Journal article and book by Geeta Anand. The director is still being negotiated, but Tom Vaughan is the prime candidate. Considering his last film was What Happens in Vegas, I hope they keep looking. Ford will be executive producing the film as well as playing the scientist.
And I'm not just talking about the FG swag (pens, notebooks, inflatable Brian dolls) either. The cast of FG is doing a live table read of the show's 100th episode titled "Stewie Kills Lois." The title says it all!
A FOX publicist advises anyone of the faint of heart and all non-Quagmire-types to consider making their way to the exit door. I don't see anyone leave.
- Hey, if Heather Mills can go on Dancing With The Stars with a fake leg, then how about Marlee Matlin or maybe the one-armed drummer from Def Leppard?
- Will Brothers & Sisters star Calista Flockhart star in the next Indiana Jones pic with boyfriend Harrison Ford?
- Katie Couric says she doesn't obsess over ratings (though I wonder if her CBS bosses do).

Unfortunately, it stunk. It stunk so bad that, according to IMDb, George Lucas tried to buy up all master copies of the show so it would never be shown again. And it hasn't; its only broadcast was on 11/17/78. It's never been released on home video, either. Bootlegs of the show have been floating around for decades, but have been hard to find.
But now, thanks to our old friend YouTube, you can now watch the entire special, which has been broken up into 10 parts. Part one is after the jump; click here to go to the YouTube page for it, where you'll see the other parts in the "Related" section.
No, not the lame Harrison Ford movie that everyone seems to like for some reason. I'm talking about the original, 60s series starring David Janssen. Looks like the show is coming to DVD sometime in 2007 (no exact date yet). It will be The Fugitive - Season 1, Volume 1. Yeah, one of those deals where they break up the seasons, probably to make more cash. The first season had 30 episodes (wow, can you imagine a show doing that today?).
Stephen King has always listed this as one of the best shows ever on TV, and it's quite good.
