Harrison Ford works with Brad Pitt for the first and ONLY time and we break-down why, all while we review the thriller flick, The Devil’s Own.

We also pay tribute to Harrison Ford’s awkward (sometimes) appearances on David Letterman and listen to “Jimmy Carter” grill Harrison.
All this and more on this week’s Get Off My Podcast!

Two Of The Greatest Awkward Guys On TV: When David Letterman Interviews Harrison Ford

Is it just two genious entertainers or two weird dudes talking? That’s what it was always like when our boy Harrison Ford went on David Letterman. Now that Dave is sadly (yeah I cried on the last show) gone, it’s time to look back at some appearances Harrison made.

Letterman talks about Harrison’s early days as a contract actor (something we covered on episode 1 of GOMP)  and learns Harrison doesn’t like talking about money. Really this should be titled, When Two Awkward Smart Dudes Talk:

After Harrison told a joke on Letterman, it became a running gag. When Harrison would go a Letterman, he would do a joke.

It all started with the Broccoli joke:

Sabrina/Indiana Jones Adventure Ride: GOMP #21

design (3)

For this Harrison Ford movie, Sabrina, we get a unique opportunity to compare how Harrison plays a role that Humphrey Bogart played. Yep, Harrison does his first “rom-com” and you kind of wonder why he doesn’t do more comedy. There was some creepness happening in Sabrina due to the large age gap between Linus/Harrison Ford and Sabrina/Julia Ormond and we’re not quite sure Harrison was totally comfortable hitting on such a younger character. Plenty of breaking down of “Linus”.

OF NOTE!: We talk about the Disneyland ride, Indiana Jones Adventure – Temple of the Forbidden Eye. (It came out during this era of Harrison’s carrer so we review it here.

ALSO, OF NOTE!: Our Harrison ‘news and updates’ are going to be a little dated due to the fact we recorded this episode before we recorded our The Force Awakens trailer #2 episode. But that’s cool, you can hear how dumb we sound.
