Harrison Ford jokes about Star Wars trailer's NFL premiere
Entertainment Weekly has a new double issue filled with exclusive Star Wars information hitting newsstands this week, including an interview with Han Solo actor Harrison Ford.
The magazine asked Ford about how it felt to see the first full trailer for the heavily anticipated film debut during halftime of a Monday Night Football game, and the action star joked that he was upset it interrupted his NFL viewing.
“I was trying to watch the damn football game!”
Ford goes on to concede that he and wife Calista Flockhart did take a moment from their evening to watch the trailer, which has already racked up 59 million views on YouTube since it debuted three weeks ago.
The article also contains a fascinating anecdote about Ford arranging his own helicopter ride to the hospital after part of the Millennium Falcon fell and broke his leg during filming.
