WhoHasTheRemote.com named Harrison Ford as its Artist of the Week. The award honors distinguished actors and actresses who have made great contributions to film and television. In an interview with the Michigan Avenue Magazine, Ford said that he’s “very happy to still be working” at age 70, a time when most men retire.
The actor is very well known to movie and TV enthusiasts and doesn’t intend to retire anytime soon. In fact, Ford has three movies slated for release in 2013. He’s also closely involved with Conservation International, which teaches preservation of natural resources. It’s a cause to which the actor is deeply committed.
Harrison Ford’s contributions to pop culture are many. Some movies just wouldn’t be the same if they hadn’t had him as their leading man. Ford is well known for playing sardonic pilot and smuggler Han Solo in the Star Wars franchise. He affects a certain devil-may-care attitude that perfects his representation of this character. Perhaps Ford’s name is most synonymous with his portrayal of Indiana Jones, a quick-witted archaeologist and professor who goes on exciting adventures. Who Has The Remote? is certain that neither of these characters would be quite as successful without Mr. Ford’s talent.
Other movies for which the veteran actor is known include Blade Runner, American Graffiti, The Fugitive, and Air Force One, all of which can be viewed on dish satellite. This year, Mr. Ford stars in three new releases: 42, Ender’s Game, and Paranoia. It is also rumored that he will reprise his role of Han Solo in the upcoming Stars Wars: Episode VII, but no confirmation has been made. For his unique character and continuing contribution to films, even at age 70, WhoHasTheRemote.com is pleased to acknowledge Harrison Ford with its Artist of the Week award.
