Tuesday's Connector: Harrison Ford

October 25th, 2010
01:26 PM ET

He's saved presidents, been a president, saved the universe from a dark lord and has even been a top-secret spy - all roles that Harrison Ford can say he has taken on.

Harrison Ford is your Connector of the Day.

Harrison Ford is your Connector of the Day.

Pegged to blockbuster action movies like "Clear and Present Danger," "Indiana Jones," "Star Wars" and "Air Force One", Ford has played roles that many people would die for.

Born in July 1942, Ford may have been destined to act since birth - both his parents were former actors.

Ford dabbled in a variety of activities growing up - from the Boy Scouts to trying to make it as a voice-over actor. But, it wasn't until he landed the starring role in George Lucas' 1977 "Star Wars" that he became a household name.

Ford would go on to play Han Solo in the three additional "Star Wars" sequels.

The other leading role that cemented Ford's status as one of Hollywood's leading men was the "Indiana Jones" franchise.

Throughout the 90s, Ford went on to have a hugely successful film career with leading roles in the Tom Clancy spy series, Sydney Pollack's Sabrina and presidential thriller, "Air Force One."

Ford has also been a very strong environmentalist and is the Vice Chairman of Conservation International. Today he is in Japan talking to leaders from around the world about the importance of preserving biodiversity and curbing environmental damage.

Here's your chance to quiz Harrison Ford.

Please leave your questions for him below and be sure to tell us where you're writing from.

    Hello Harrison Ford and CNN friends,

    I would like an answer from Harrison Ford on the following questions:

    – How will you as a member of the board of directors of Conservation International and as a member of the Governing Board of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) Improve Clean and Safe Water worldwide, while the World War II Archaeological North German Lloyd (Hapag-Lloyd AG) Cargo Ship “the Goslar” is Still Polluting our Waters in Suriname, Atlantic Ocean and Beyond for Decades?

    – How will you as the narrator of the documentary Dalai Lama Renaissance Improve the relationship with Dalai Lama and the rest of our world?
    – How are you going to Improve California and the rest of our world to be Gun Violent Free?
    – What can we expect from you in 2011?

    I am awaiting Harrison Ford’s replies.

    Dear Mr. Ford,

    Thank you for taking the time to respond to our questions.

    If offered the chance, would you ever do something like 'Blade Runner' again? (long night shoot in the rain, a dystopian sci fi that is challenging to create due to budget / time / its scale).

    What kind of role would you love to play?

    If you had memory loss and tried to piece who you are together from random events, sights and sounds throughout your life, whom would you be?

    I am humbled by your taking the time to write a response to any of this.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Hello Mr. Ford,

    What is your opinion on U.S. military bases existing on and being relocated around the Okinawan Islands in Japan? Besides social and political problems, this issue negatively impacts the marine environment in this area. As a member of American University's upcoming trip to Okinawa to learn about this issue, I've become frustrated with the complexity of the matter. What do you think is good solution that benefits all (especially marine life and preservation)?

Which NGOs or organizations can be most helpful and could use the most support? With times tougher for most folks, where do you think we should focus?

Ideas for the tat have come and gone and I've thought up just about every possible way to honor Indy on my body: The hat and the whip, the ark, the fertility idol of the Hovitos, etc... Anyway, since this is going to be on me PERMANENTLY I'd like to get a take on it from Indy himself. What do you think would be the best way to honor Indiana Jones via tattoo?

    Thank you, Mr. Ford, for sharing your talent with us for all these many years.

    If George Lucas were so inclined to do the last third of the nine story Star Wars arc – or if anyone else worth Mr. Lucas' salt – would you consider returning to the role of Han Solo? Have you read any of the many books that continued the Star Wars experience, and if so, what do you think of them?

    Additionally, are there any roles that you wish you'd not taken?

    Do you still work in caprentry? Is any of your work in capentry available for purchase?

    Dear Mr Ford,

    I applaud you for your work and involvement regarding the environment. I have been a volunteer in Africa many times and have seen and learned what dammage is done to our environment and how important it is to educate people so they understand and can do something about it. I'm greatly concerned about the current rate at which the rhino's are poached so the horns can be sold to Asian countries who still believe rhinohorns will make them stronger, more potent and heal diseases. Any chance this will also be a topic during the convention in Japan? I'll be sure to follow all the projects of Conservation International and i'm sure we can all make a difference in one way or another to preserve our beautiful planet and all the wonderfull creatures in it!

    On a more personal note: is there any chance you'll be visiting Holland in the (near) future? If so, it would be dream come true to get a chance to meet you in person 😀

    All the best and kind regards,

    How do we get from NGOs lobbying for the enviroment to Governments under mandate actually taking care of the ecosystems trusted to their administrations?

    I believe we are primitive beings when greed and moral corruption dictates the future of our habitat with only a few labeled 'tree huggers' or 'enviromentalists' fight for what should be the unquestionable duty of all things alive, to protect and conserve. Development is Not Destruction. It becomes destruction only through greed and ignorance.

    We will continue to lobby and work to protect nature against enviromental predation by lesser humans but truth be, our daily fight to protect and conserve nature is the shinning beacon of our failiure as society.

    Let's label those who destroy by greed, be it regulators, CEOs, managers... Lets call them what they are... Ecolocos.

    The only question I have is if you know a Todd Hayes? This person claims to know not only you but, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. If you could verify this, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time and kind consideration.

    Mr. Harrison Ford

    I am a big fan of yours, You are one of my favorite actors, and I have a few questions for you.

    Which one of your characters do you like the most and which one of them did you enjoy playing the most, Han Solo or Indiana Jones?

    Steven Spielberg cut your scene from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, the scene where you played the school principal and you talked with Henry Thomas as Elliott, are you still disappointed by that?

    Which Actor do you like to work with the most?

    Which Actress do you like to work with the most?

    Which Director do you like to work with the most?

    Which actor/director/celebrity do you have a good relationship with?

    Which one of your movies was the hardest work for you?

    What is it like, being a rich, famous, hardworking actor?

    Is it true that you will be returning as Indiana Jones for the fifth time?

    Dear Harrison Ford,
    I really just wanted to say that your acting is amazing, but what is really inspiring about you is the way you use your fame to take on current environmental problems rather than ending up in tabloids. One person can make a difference.
    What do you think is the most important factor that needs to be focused on first in the fight for a better planet for the future? How can people who may not be famous actors or politicians make a difference?
    Thank you for your time! (ps you should run for president, Regan did it and you're a way better actor.)

Going to the movies with my dad and little brother, your movies were such a treat to us all. I've now lived and worked on several continents and live in Tanzania.

    During the making of Star Wars did you have any idea of what an impact it was going to have on the world? I would like to point out that I saw it 11 times at the movies in 1977!

    Same with Blade Runner. I believe that was a harrowing shoot but the result – well it speaks for itself.

    And Witness – another great film! By a great Aussie director. Have spent some time driving around Amish Country and can't help hear the Witness soundtrack playing in my head. Did you realize you were making an amazing film when you were in PA?

    So many questions, Mr Ford. And so little time.

    First time I saw you on silver screen was when I was very young and went to watch "Force 10 From Navarone" with my father in a 200 year old colonial built bioscope turned movie theatre in Calcutta. After that I saw you in "Apocalypse Now". The rest, as of Star Wars, is history. The other stars of Star Wars did not really make it as big as you did. What made you stand out from others there and rise to the pinnacle as you did, so very quickly, besides landing the Indaina Jones role in ROLA? Most stars in Star Wars were also good looking with extraordinary acting skills. What made you the special pick of the crop on the success ladder?

    BTW, I am probably off next weekend to Wested leather in Kent, UK and grab an "authentic" Indiana Jones ROLA jacket 🙂

    Thank you for taking the time out to do this, being as busy as you are and being as big a star as you are.

    One of the reasons Indy is so loved is the fact that he is so human. So my question is:

    Because of this, do you feel there is no age limit to playing the character since he is so human and therefore able to age before us on screen? And if so, how would you like to see the character's age handled in Indy 5?

    By the way, Indy 4 had its issues, but you were GREAT as always.

    There was about a 20 year gap in Indy films (1989-2008). If you had to do it over again, would you have done more Indy films in that time period?

    Hello Harrison!

    I've always been a big Raiders of the Lost Ark fan and just wondered if it was as much fun to make as it was to watch?

    There was about a 20 year span between Indy films (1989-2008). If you had to do it over, would you have filmed more sequels during that time?

    What gives you the greatest amount of joy outside of your work?

    What kind of legacy do you wish to leave behind?

    You have had a great career in film! Much happiness in the future!

    There are a lot of people that love the jacket from Raiders of the Lost Ark and the subsequent films. Many companies make and sell copies of this jacket, from Wested Leather in England to US Wings in the USA to many others, and there is some debate as to the maker of the jacket you wore in Raiders.

    Do you know who made the jacket that you wore in Raiders of the Lost Ark? Was it Leather Concessionaires, now Wested, or Neil Cooper? Also, what was your favorite jacket design out of all the films, as they are all a bit different from one another.

    Mr. Ford.

    I am a huge Indiana Jones fans. Because of my love of the series, I've written a screen play for I what I hope will be Indy 5. My question is – "How the devil do I get it to George Lucas, yourself or Steven Spielberg to review it?" I've written Skip Brittenham and both of yours sons to no avail, though Skip did reply – please ask them if they remember my letters. I have a legitimate screenplay I know you would enjoy.

    Everyone needs a break and I'm hoping you read this and grant me an audience.

    Thanks much,
    Brandon

    Hi beautiful man!

    Thank SO much for all you do to help protect the environment and for speaking at the UN Convention for Biological Diversity this week! Our planet is better off because of your efforts and the people on this planet are happier because of your movies!

    Why is your greatest accomplishment "surviving"? Is it the fame that drags you down?

    I worked on a biodiversity plan today for a mine site and am excited about healing such areas. But your efforts remind me I need to do more for biodiversity in areas of my life other than work, like write my congressmen to have the US ratify the convention. Thanks!

    Mr.Ford,
    My son is a member of Cub Scout Pack 358 in Midlothian, Illinois and a life-long friend is a pilot and flight instructor with the Young Eagles Program in nearby Gary, Indiana. I've brought up the idea of going out to the Gary Airport with my son's Scout Pack to attend a day of learning and fun with the Young Eagles where my friend sometimes takes the kids of flights. The boys could then earn an Aviation Badge, one which I'd imagine would be fairly rare among all Scouts. Another benefit is that original members of the Tuskegee Airmen are on hand to pass on their amazing historical experiences to the kids.

    If your schedule permits it the kids would love for you to join us for a couple of hours in Gary learning about aviation, earning another badge for their efforts, and for some, taking their very first flights in the process. Your years of experience in and love of aviation would be welcome and the kids would get a real kick out of meeting a familiar film action hero who I'm sure would command their immediate attention.

    I do understand you are no longer co-chair of the Young Eagles Program but your recent dediction to it and your obvious admiration for aviation had me thinking that perhaps it would be worth it just to try and write you and give it a shot for the kids.

    If this is something you'd be interested in, please contact me at the e-mail address listed. This would be a small, private event with no media of any kind.

    Thanks for your time in reading this,
    Jason N. , Posen, IL

    Hello Harrison!

    I have a question and request for you. First, sorry for my bad English, I'm a French Canadian from Quebec.

    Because you like fly with your helicopter and your are a pilot of the Millenium Falcon, my question is, would you try Space Ship One in the future or became a another Space Tourist same as Guy Laliberté. Thanks!

    My request is, if you want a hat that you wore in Raiders in 1981, I create the ultime replica of this hat and my name on the web is Fedoraiders.

    Thank you very much!

    From all the movies you've been in, not necessarily the best, not necessarily the biggest, not necessarily your best performance, but which one you have the fondest memories of, and why?
