Harrison Ford on the set of “Star Wars: A New Hope” (1977) having absolutely become Han Solo, trying to eat his mic after losing his words !
Wtf Harrison lol
No actor will never eat as many mics throughout their acting career like Ford did. Ford holds the current mic-eating record at 3,463 mics during his acting career. His Star Wars costar, Mark Hamill, is currently only at 1,072.
Here we see a video of Ford in action during one of his mic feedings. This is speculated to be approximately his 560th mic consumed.
adn he should not have been counted
In 1970 Harrison Ford was really struggling as an actor and had turned to carpentry for a living. He was broke, hadn’t worked on any project for a while and was frustrated that acting had gotten him nowhere. So that year he somehow got an offer to star in a CBS primetime sitcom (All in the Family), a part that “would have been by far the most high-profile of his career”, but he refused because the main character in the show was a racist, homophobic jerk. When a friend pointed out that he was saying no to $30k and the breakthrough he desperately needed, Ford said “I’ll go build a cabinet”.

I remember when they screened it [the “I am your father” scene], Harrison turned around and said “I didn’t know that! Why the f*&^ didn’t you tell me?!”
