Hokey Religions and Ancient Weapons are No Match for These Harrison Ford Facts

Subscribe to KQCL Power 96 on

You might know that early in his career, Harrison Ford was credited as “Harrison J. Ford.” But did you know that the ‘j’ doesn’t stand for anything? Harrison Ford doesn’t even have a middle name. He adopted it to avoid any confusion with another actor named Harrison Ford, who’d had a lengthy career in the silent film era and died in 1957. That’s just one of the incredible Harrson Ford facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!

Today, Harrison Ford is revered all around the world as Han Solo, the smuggler with a heart of gold from Star Wars. But Ford wasn’t even originally supposed to try out for the part of Han Solo. Instead, George Lucas brought him to simply read opposite the candidates for the roles of Luke and Leia. Eventually, Lucas liked him so much playing off Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, that he decided he was the one for the role, and his career took off from there.

‘You Think You Know Movies?’ is a ScreenCrush original series that dives deep into the cinematic worlds of your favorite movies and freeze frames a few tidbits you might not have known. We’ve already tackled Star Wars, The Avengers and Spider-Man, but now it’s time to get off Harrison Ford’s plane. (He’s a pilot, you know.) Watch more installments of ‘You Think You Know Movies?’ below and let us know in the comments what movies we should cover next.
