Harrison Ford ‘Tonight Show’ Interview Sparks Questions Over J.J. Abrams Relationship (VIDEO)
Ford appeared on the “Tonight Show” to plug the new Star Wars film, in which he reprises his role as Han Solo, but the veteran actor nearly choked on his drink when Fallon merely mentioned Abrams’ name. The near spit-take then turned into a running gag for Fallon throughout the rest of the show.
During the interview, Ford also tossed aside sentimental feelings for the role that made him famous. When Fallon asked if he got emotional putting on the wardrobe again, Ford flatly responded, “No, I got paid.”
It seems Ford’s on-set injury during filming that tainted his experience working with Abrams. As Gossip Cop reported, Ford broke his leg during production when the door of the Millenium Falcon came loose and landed on him. Using a Han Solo doll to show the extent of his injuries, Ford explained to Fallon that Abrams “closed a [expletive] door on me,” and bended the action figure’s left leg into a distorted position before ripping it off completely. The Star Wars star then ripped off part of the doll’s head and pants, revealing a non-existent anatomy.
“Let’s not talk about that accident,” joked Ford. “That’s what you get for having an amateur mohel,” he added, referring to the person who performs a Jewish circumcision.
