My favourite actor

My favourite actor is Harrison Ford. I’ve seen all of his movies all the way back to The Empire Strikes Back which was in 1980. He only films about one movie a year but he’s done an extraordinarily good job at picking movies — in 33 years he only made one movie that was truly bad.

Best known for his appearances as Han Solo and Indiana Jones, he’s also played the President of the United States, a doctor falsely convicting of murdering his wife, and a regular guy.

Keep in mind some of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies would have been higher on the list the first time I watched them.

What’s next for Ford? Paranoia, recently in theatres, was hated by critics — I might check it out sometime anyway. Ender’s Game will be in theatres soon — I will definitely be checking that one out. And it seems like, against all odds, he’ll be reprising his role as Han Solo in the next Star Wars film.
