“Laugh it up, fuzzball”: Harrison Ford “refuses” to answer Star Wars questions

Kid, Harrison Ford has flown from one side of the galaxy to the other. He’s seen a lot of strange stuff, put up with a lot of obnoxious questions from fans of Star Wars, Blade Runner, and Indiana Jones, but there’s no mystical force that controls his destiny in a way that makes answering these questions mandatory. (There is a mystical force that can control his reasons for reaching for his blaster, but that’s a whole other story.) The actor’s fundamental prickliness has become such a large part of his mystique that it hijacked his segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, the end of which segued into an audience Q&A sketch based on the common knowledge that it’s not wise to upset a Harrison Ford. Watch the clip below to see Kimmel staffers in Star Wars garb struggle to come up with a line of questioning for Ford that doesn’t originate a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. (So are we to assume there were Regarding Henry fans in the audience?) But then someone in a Chewbacca costume shows up, and Ford gives the fans exactly what they want: Han Solo bickering with a pile of fur.
