Harrison Ford Joining J.J. Abrams' Produced Comedy?


Details are pretty sketchy on this, but according to MTV, Harrison Ford has joined a comedy called Morning Glory. The long-delayed project is being produced by J.J. Abrams and directed by Brit Roger Michell (according to EW in 2007) and supposedly stars Reese Witherspoon as a struggling female news producer in New York City who recruits an iconic, egotistical anchorman (presumably Ford) to revive a failing network's morning show.


Harrison, I love you, I really do. But comedies don't really work out so well for you, do they? Let's take a look at Hollywood Homicide. Pretty much the only thing the movie had going for it was Josh Hartnett's Mustang Saleen. Beautiful car. Other than that...uh...it really wasn't that great. And I am your biggest fan. Really.

You know what? How about The Cisco Kid? I must be the only person on the planet who's heard of that movie. Why? Because it was a theatrical flop. People don't like you in comedy roles, Harrison. None of your movies are hits unless there's at least one shot of you sticking your index finger in someone's face while shouting angrily. Trust me on this.
