First, props to Conan for finally booking two guests who actually have movies to promote out in theaters right now and not coming six months from now. Double props for wrangling the strange creature from Wyoming who used to be and still is in some ways Harrison Ford for a hilariously bizarre interview:

Rosario Dawson's legs are also a fine, fine reason to enjoy this episode of Conan. And Reggie Watts, who was the most pleasant surprise for me when I saw him open for Conan's Prohibited live tour back in June. I'm a fan.

But that Harrison Ford, though. Wow. The reticence was off the charts (though Ford has a rep as a notoriously difficult interview). Conan got the best out of him. I appreciated Ford's candor and honestly regarding an Indiana Jones V (and how he paused after mentioning George Lucas' name, expecting the audience to applaud.) No one booed the mention of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, either. Conan's audience is very polite.

And Deon Cole's Conan commercial for black people was excellent. Probably the best all-around episode of Conan so far.

I guess I haven't seen too many Harrison Ford interviews. He seemed ... sleepy. Or a little drunk. Either way, it was damn funny and I loved his straightforwardness. Conan: 'This is the most honest interview I've ever had!'

Conan's HF impression sounded a lot like his Clint Eastwood impression.

Harrison Ford is a TREMENDOUS actor and a TERRIBLE interview, at least for network television talk shows.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems as if Conan doesn't show clips of any movies or television shows guests are there to promote. No clips of "Modern Family" from Julie Bowen last week, no clips from "Morning Glory" from Harrison Ford or "Unstoppable" and Rosario Dawson this week (again, unless I missed it flipping to Letterman), which is a welcome change. They did conveniently place a commercial for at least one of those in one of the commercial breaks I did stick around for though.

I would much rather have guests just continue to mention their movie/tv show, etc and leave more time for actual talk. Not sure if it's because Conan would have to pay to use the clips or if the clip would have to be from a "Warner Family" project, but again, it's a welcome change.

Again, just glad to have Conan and Andy back on my tv

You couldn't be more wrong about the latter. Harrison Ford is an awesome interview. He tells it like it is and pulls no punches. Also he was high.

Letterman summed it up in his last interview with Ford:
"Why does it feel like everything I say pisses you off?"

I just don't get why he is so damn awkward every single time.
He has been in show business for several decades and done talk shows several times. What is his problem? Since he is an actor by trade, can't he just act confident for a few minutes? It's kind of rude to the host and audience, even if he is doing some Jouquin Phoenix/Andy Kauffman bit, which I doubt.

Harrison's best interview was in the Actor's Studio where he could talk about acting. He has always viewed himself as an actor first and a superstar second which explains why he leaves in the country and not LA. Plus, since Star Wars, every interviewer brings up the carpenter thing which just pisses him off since they have using that same thing since Star Wars. He seems to be a guy who likes his privacy which for shows like Conan, Lettermen and Jay, they want to delve deeper then he would like.

I think this is why I'm so shocked that it's always a new revelation when Ford has one of these interviews. From years of Letterman appearances, I can't help but think that HE'S ALWAYS LIKE THIS. It isn't unique to Conan, for sure.

I loved this so much. Let's embed THAT. Is it out there?


Ironically, you may have to sit through a commercial to see this ad.

Oh, and of course I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much I'd like to win a pine tree air freshener.

I'm entering my mother in the pine tree air freshener contest every day for 20 days. Since, after all, she's the one in our family who always wins things.

With the partner's very similar depicted fate, I was wondering if I didn't just watch Speed 3: Nasty In New Orleans. Editz: My one criteria for this to be a good movie was that I didn't want to see any wrestling moves during fight scene.
