Almost two years ago Harrison Ford was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and his ex-friend Chewbacca sneaked in to see him to make a mends. But Han Solo kicked him out, telling him he never wanted to see him again.
Well yesterday Indiana Jones was once again on the ABC late night show and Chewbacca came back. To say Ford didn’t take it so well, would be an understatement. As soon as he saw the man who caused his ex-wife to still cough up hairballs, he called him a Son of a Bitch. When the Wookiee pleaded to let bygones be bygones, it only led to Ford being so upset he walked out of the interview. I guess once you stab him in the heart with a light saber, he will never forgive the person/Wookiee who did that to him.
Hopefully they can end this feud before they film the next Star Wars movie, that is if either one of them is asked to do it.
Now in Chewie’s defense, Ford was already in a bad mood. Right before the question and answer section Kimmel rubbed the fact that he scored an out of the park home run in a game he played, while Harrison couldn’t pitch a ball all the way to home plate from the mound. When you watch the video below, you can see how awkward it was between the actor and the host. So it wasn’t like Chewbacca had a chance.
Harrison Ford was on The Late Show and David Letterman asked him if he is going to be in the next Star Wars. Then Han Solo asked the CBS late night host to drop that line of questioning because it is a sensitive topic for him. That’s because for a long time they haven’t asked him to be part of it. You can tell that he is really hurt by that, at least I think that is his hurt reaction because he really doesn’t show any.
Seriously how can you have a sequel to the Star Wars trilogy and not have him in it? May the force be with Han Solo.
Star Wars’ Luke Skywalker and Star Trek’s Sulu are uniting for a very important cause, they are bring their Star power together to appear on ABC’s The Neighbors next month. Tom Jo who plays Reggie Jackson on the sitcom that airs Wednesdays at 8:30p Tweeted a picture of Mark Hamill and George Takei together and we learn that they can get along. So take that William Shatner and Carrie Fisher? You know when the show comes back next season maybe they can bring peace to those mortal enemies. But until then we get a glimpse of the two Star worlds uniting as one and not just because J.J. Abrams is the luckiest geek on planet earth!
When it was announced that Disney was going to make 3 new Star Wars films, I am sure I am not the only one who was hoping that J.J. Abrams would direct at least one of them. Well the man who brought us Felicity gave us some news that was as devastating as that horrible haircut she got. According to The Hollywood Reporter he told Empire Magazine, “There were the very early conversations, and I quickly said that, because of my loyalty to Star Trek and also just being a fan, I wouldn’t even want to be involved in the next version of those things.” Then he added, “I declined any involvement very early on. I’d rather be in the audience not knowing what was coming, rather than being involved in the minutiae of making them.”
So now that he is out, it will be interesting to see who will get their dream job.
Earlier this week Disney bought out George Lucas’ company and they announced that would be releasing some new Star War films. Well any director that is 50 and under would give everything they have just for the opportunity to direct one of the upcoming chapters. And so far three of them have thrown their hats and/or glasses into race for that job. Yesterday on Conan, the audition tapes were released for Michael Moore, Woody Allen and Kevin Smith’s and I think it already looks better than Episode 1, 2 and 3 combined! Maybe all three of them could do it together, it would still be better than anything Lucas has done since the late ’80s.
Seriously you can tell Conan had a lot of fun with this and I enjoyed watching what they did! Hopefully they will do more of them!
BTW who do you think should direct the next Star Wars installment? My friend thinks Ben Affleck would be a good choice, and I would love if J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon could do it together. It will be interesting to see who it will be?
Finally my friend who camped out for Episodes 1, 2 and 3 is undecided as of now if will be on line in 2015 for Episode 7. I am sure he will be, but Lucas has turned him against the franchise so you never know. And my love of Jar Jar Binks has turned him against me. Yes I know I am his sole fan.
Before everyone worshiped Mark Hamill for being Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, there was only one person worshiping him on The Partridge Family. How cute was the 19 year old in that 1971 episode?
Some Star Wars fans felt the force with Gotye and created a parody video to his chart topping song Somebody I Used to Know. Let’s just say it so freaking brilliant that it would even make Darth Vader crack a smile.
Since I actually know people who camped out for the last three Star Wars movies on Hollywood Blvd, I had to post this for them and all you Star Wars fans.
Here are some other Star Wars tribute videos by Teddie Films:
Carrie Fisher was on The Late Late Show yesterday and she shared with Craig Ferguson what her daughter finds most embarrassing about the Star Wars Princess Leia because there are many things. Well that thing is when Fisher goes out braless, so now she always makes sure to wear one. To which the CBS late night host responded with that he is wearing one too. Yes figured out where he wears it. Same place as the gift she gave him from Australia. On that note she brought him more presents from her Asian trip and one of them goes perfect with those Kangaroo Balls.
Two weeks ago Volkswagen released an ad with several dogs barking the Star Wars theme and now they released one with a dog being watched by aliens in at bar called The Dog Strikes Back. Personally I loved the Super Bowl commercial until they brought the bar scene in, although they had a great ending that left me gasping for air.
In a galaxy far far away, Volkswagen gathered a dozen dogs to bark out a song we all know very well. The twelve pups did the Star Wars theme in a way that has never been done before and should never be done again because the force was with this ad. Just arfdorable!!!
So what do dogs barking the John Williams song have to do with selling cars? Here is what the automobile manufacture posted with the ad on YouTube, “A canine chorus barks a familiar tune. Keep an eye out for our 2012 Game Day commercial—it will all make sense. Love Star Wars and Volkswagen? Create an Intergalactic Invite to your Big Game party here: http://vw.com/star-wars-invite.” Intrigued I am.
BTW it is very rare that a commercial comes on TV and makes me look up and replay it over and over, but that exactly what this ad did. Seriously doesn’t it make you want to howl at the moon?
