Harrison Ford and Chewbacca Fight on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 28th 2011 7:15AM
Jimmy Kimmel, Chewbacca and Harrison FordHan Solo and Chewbacca are one of the all-time great movie double acts, but we haven't really seen them together much lately. Has there been a rift in the Millennium Falcon cockpit?

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.

Watch the hilarious expletive-laden video after the jump.

Letterman Grabbed Harrison Ford's Head to Look at a Scar on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Harrison Ford, 'Late Show with David Letterman'David Letterman was feeling a little frisky on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) with guest Harrison Ford. And, apparently, his friskiness was contagious.

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."

Harrison Ford Is on 'Conan' Tonight ... and Maybe 'Glee' in the Future?

by Gabrielle Dunn, posted Nov 16th 2010 7:30PM
Harrison FordMega-star Harrison Ford will be stopping by 'Conan' in the show's second week to promote his new movie, 'Morning Glory,' and he was glad to try to help boost the ratings of newly-returned host Conan O'Brien.

"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.'

Jon Stewart Interviews Harrison Ford -- But Didn't Bother to See His Film (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart Interviews Harrison Ford -- But Didn't Bother to See His FilmDeep down, we get that talk shows aren't 100 percent really real. After all, the shows' hosts have a new guest sitting next to them every night. And all of these guests are promoting a movie ... or a book ... or a play ... or another TV program.

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.

Harrison Ford and David Letterman See Eye-to-Eye (Almost) (VIDEO)

Harrison Ford and David Letterman See Eye-to-Eye (Almost)On the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), David Letterman and guest Harrison Ford started with a debate about flying high. Then they ended up in a debate over their relative heights.

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.

Harrison Ford Tells Jay Leno About His Wedding (VIDEO)

Harrison Ford Married Calista Flockhart -- But Skipped the HoneymoonHarrison Ford is known as one of the most private guys in Hollywood. The actor tries to avoid publicity and generally stays out of the spotlight. But this past June, Ford married his girlfriend Calista Flockhart -- after they'd been dating for almost a decade. Ten years is a long time to wait for a wedding!

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.

Jack Nicholson Makes a Weird Speech at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award' (VIDEO)

Jack Nicholson Makes a Weird Speech at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award'The stars came out to honor a great director at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award 2010: Mike Nichols' (Sat., 9PM ET on TV Land). Famed director Mike Nichols has been making films for more than five decades now, and during that time, he's made a lot of friends in the industry. Among the celebs in attendance were Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.

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.

The moment you've been waiting for is here: an A-Team/Star Wars mashup!

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 30th 2009 3:03PM
You've been waiting for this your whole life, and it has finally happened: someone has mashed together the opening narration and music from The A-Team with scenes from the Star Wars movies. I love stuff like this. I want someone to put the theme to The Simpsons on to scenes from The Wire.

Seven of the worst TV Christmas specials - VIDEOS

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 22nd 2008 2:15PM
Where would we be without the hallowed television Christmas special? We would be engaged in enthralling conversations with relatives who like to give the backstory about the gall bladder operation pictures they still carry in their wallet. We would be playing defense against every breakable item in the house while the neighbor's kids get enough sugar in their systems to power the Space Shuttle. We would not only have to muster the courage to taste Grandma's homemade rum and Kahula fruitcake, but also to pretend that we like it without our stomach turning inside out, crawling up our esophagus and out of our mouth.

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.

Harrison Ford says yes to CBS movie - UPDATE

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 9th 2008 3:38PM
FordI don't think this is a case of a big star taking a role on TV for the paycheck. Mr. Box Office -- I gave him that name based on the Star Wars and Indiana Jones series alone -- Harrison Ford has agreed to star in a CBS film called Crowley. The picture is a true story, based on the case of John and Aileen Crowley, whose children are afflicted with a rare genetic condition. They seek the help of researcher -- Ford's character -- who may have the cure.

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.

Four stars for Barbara Walters Oscar Special

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 14th 2008 11:40AM
Walters & PageAs the Academy Award presentation approaches, that can only mean one thing -- time for a new Barbara Walters special. Yes, yes, what matters most before the big show isn't the red carpet and the fashions, it's who will Barbara be interviewing for her annual Oscar edition? Ms. Walters has four biggies lined up for the Sunday, February 24th (7:00-8:00 p.m. ET) broadcast. Oscar nominee Ellen Page, star of Juno; Indiana Jones, himself, Harrison Ford; Ugly Betty diva, Vanessa Williams; and Hannah Montana/teen queen Miley Cyrus. It's an eclectic group, to say the least, but then, that's Baba Wawa's formula for success, is it not? After all, this is her 27th straight year doing a pre-Oscar special.

Family Guy 100th episode table read - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 23rd 2007 10:19PM
Family Guy Yeah, I'm repeating myself, but the only two words that come to mind about today's Family Guy table read/lunch session are: freakin' sweet!

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.

Watch the entire Star Wars Holiday Special on YouTube - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 12th 2006 7:44PM
Star Wars Holiday Special AdWhere were you on November 17, 1978? If you were alive (I keep forgetting how young some of our readers are), you were probably in front of the one TV in your house, with your family, waiting on pins and needles for the evening news to end. Why? Because ABC was about to air the highly-anticipated show The Star Wars Holiday Special, that's why. Most of us had seen the blockbuster Star Wars about a dozen times by then, and we were looking forward to seeing our favorite characters in an all-new adventure!

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.

The Fugitive coming to DVD

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 26th 2006 2:00PM

The FugitiveNo, 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.
