Watch Mark Hamill Do a Great Harrison Ford Impression While Sharing a STAR WARS Story
Mark Hamill recently appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers and while he was on the show he started reminiscing about his time working on the first Star Wars film. While sharing a story that involved the trash compactor scene he ended up doing a hell of a great impression of his friend and co-star Harrison Ford! As you’ll see, he’s spot on.
Here’s what Hamill had to say:
“George likes to cast people that are so close to what he wants, he doesn’t have to really get in there and give you a lot of direction. So Harrison walks in and he’s just too cool for school. Instant idolization."
“Carrie [Fisher] was funny and witty and adorable. And we just immediately hit it off, it was perfect. And Harrison had a really firm grasp of the overview. I think he’d make a really good director if he weren’t so lazy…. we’ll edit that out later, but for instance, we were doing the scene where it was right after we got out of the trash compactor. We hadn’t filmed that scene yet. And I’m looking at the continuity saying, ‘Wait a second, this is right after we got out of the trash compactor, shouldn’t my hair be all wet and matted with schmutz all through it?’”
“And he [Harrison] turns to me and says, ‘Hey, kid, it ain’t that kinda movie. If people are looking at your hair, we’re all in big trouble.’ And I thought, ‘He’s so right’. “And next time I saw him he said, ‘Hey, I don’t sound anything like that.’”
Now listen to him do his impression of Harrison Ford below and tell us what you think!
