  1. Harrison Ford is the only actor that can show up at every talk show appearance over the years stoned out of his mind and his adoring fans ignore it and give him a hall pass.

  2. When I was 11 Star Wars came out and I went to see it and there he was, Han Solo, and I felt something in my loins for the first time. 40 or so years later and he still does it for me. Thank you Mr. Ford!

  3. Good thing Trump’s still in the Whitehouse. Kimmel would be lost without him. He can’t get through one show without him.

  4. Harrison Ford is kinda quirky, but great nevertheless. Wonderful sense of humor, and decent in that he hates Trump.
    I wonder if he still flies his plane since he crashed on a golf course that time? And then another time landed on a taxiway at a major airport narrowly missing a commercial jet. I'd like to hear him tell those stories!

  5. Thanks for spoiling the ending of the movie for me in the title of this YouTube video. I've been busy and I haven't watched the film yet. I really appreciate your lack of intelligence.

  6. Possibly one of the ONLY people Kimmel doesn't interrupt in mid-sentence constantly. And Harrison…well..he is just about the most awesome person ever. At heart just a traditional "man's man." Been my favorite actor of all time from the time I was 5 when Star Wars was released, so you can imagine how giddy I was when I had the chance to meet him in person when he happened to be in my town looking to buy a new Bell helicopter.

    Let me tell you right now…look that man in the eye, give him a firm handshake, and everything after that will be just fine. I'd love to meet him again.

  7. It's funny how those living and working in entertainment all sound like they've been brainwashed with the same beliefs and views. Its like hearing the same person yet it's repeated by many.
    I get it though living that bubble secluded from the geographical majority ya obviously will be out if touch with them.

  8. This Looser is high as a kite, probably on Meth. Look at him! He can't sit straight and is jumping all over the place with his thoughts.

  9. We'll miss him when he's gone….just remember that. Yeah he's awkward, yeah he's grumpy half the time, but he's in the group of the last of the genuine, bona-fide movie stars. They simply don't make them like this anymore.

  10. I love this man, named my son after him, and I've got no problem with him being baked outta his friggin mind during the interview. He deserves to smoke as much weed as his blessed heart wants. Puff, puff, pass Harrison Ford. Cheers!
