  1. He looks almost younger now than when he was in The Force Awakens. Can't wait for the new Indiana Jones movie, he's definitely gonna pull it off and make a great film.

  2. I decided to watch a jimmy Kimmel video because of Harrison Ford. And was pleasantly surprised when he didn’t get political. But I should have known jimmy would be a liberal shill before the interview was over.

  3. From the first second of that dog I was joking like "Wow that dog is strange! It moves in some weird smooth way like it's been drawn in or smth!"
    Oh well…

  4. Harrison is really endearing in his charming pretended arrogance and his signature art of making confusing faces.
    He's a sweetheart.

  5. His personality and humor is gearing up for Indy 5…this was as much Henry Jones as it was Harry Ford. His hearty laugh was great. And, I am excited for The Call of the Wild. For a minute, I thought it was going to be on Disney +; but realized I was confusing Willem Dafoe's Togo w/ it as a combo release.

  6. It is funny how people don't get Harrison Ford sarcasm in this talkshow interview. But I like how he always make fun with the questions.

  7. Everyone wants to know what was he on or if he was high. No one seems to ask what was he drinking in a brown coffee mug that required a lime garnish. That's what I'd like to know. 👍

  8. Too bad the dog is CGI in this movie 😩. I know it's easier, doesn't require training a dog etc. But the CGI here sucks…

  9. Give me a single reason not to love this man. So glad to see him in such high spirits, make me want to see him as Indy one last time so bad! Harrison is and will always be the GOAT 👏🏻👏🏻

  10. I like he’s such a huge actor but still gets nervous with interviews
    No matter how big you are you’re still human

  11. Harrison Ford is one of the only celebrities that just looks like an older version of themselves. He looks like 70s Ford, but… Old. Can't say that for many others of his generation.

  12. Harrison Ford was a hero of mine growing up, and still is. He reminds me so much of how my father was. Though, his interviews are always a little hard for me to watch. As much as I love and admire the guy, I feel like he would much rather be doing something else then promoting a movie. Ive seen some interviews where he's doing a one on one with no audience, and its not for promoting one particular movie, and he seems to enjoy those more. .

  13. His comedic abilities are vastly underappreciated. I believe Mark Hamill has made it a point to highlight this over the years and was very disappointed directors, casting folks, story writers etc. have not tapped into this more.
