We are going to have to side with Australian reporter Ollie Wilcher on this one. We looked up Harrison Ford on IMDB and we don’t recognize any of his films.
Los Angeles—With the recent news about “Star Wars” creator George Lucas selling his empire to the Disney company a few weeks ago, interest in the sci-fi mega-franchise once again peaked within the media, and some foreign television news agencies thought it would be a good idea to do a “Where are they Now?” segment on the franchise’s stars.
But when Ollie Wilcher, a TV reporter from Bisbane, Australia got on the phone with Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, to interview him about his life and career after “Star Wars,” Ford, known to be a bit prickly with the press anyway, was rather miffed that the reporter didn’t know about Ford’s turn as Indiana Jones or his roles in “Witness” or “The Fugitive.”

The film also starred Carrie “Don’t call me Princess Leia” Fischer and the late Bruno Kirby as Sally’s and Harry’s best friends, respectively. Continue reading →
