Via the Ken doll, I read this tidbit: “Harrison Ford cheats death in movie stunt gone wrong”


The 60-year-old “Indiana Jones” star — who insists on doing many of his own stunts — was riding in a car driven by co-star Josh Hartnett when the vehicle went out of control during a chase scene and hit a wall. Luckily, both actors escaped serious injury in the wreck . 

The accident occurred while Harrison and Josh, playing Los Angeles Police Dept. detectives, were pursuing a homicidal rap-music boss in a chase sequence .


Well, the headline needs a little work, doesn’t it? How’s about: “Goddamn Pretty Boy Almost Kills Han Solo”?

And don’t give me any guff about how it was all Ford’s fault since he was the one who originally insisted on doing the stunt in the first place. The guy is practically a senior citizen, and worse than that, he’s an actor. He can’t be counted on to make intelligent decisions. Don’t these people have handlers who can use their cattle prods to zap them back into docility should they get too agitated and want to do something stupid like speed around in a car chase?

Where’s the American Society for the Promotion of Common-sense for Actors (the other ASPCA!) when you need them?
