Josh Groban cameo on Jimmy Kimmel Live by Michael Desmond/ABC
After watching Jimmy Kimmel's hilarious post-Oscars "I'm F--king Ben Affleck" music video, I had one lingering thought I just couldn't put to rest: How in the world did they get stick-in-the-mud Harrison Ford to play along?Apparently, all they had to do was ask. When Affleck learned that Ford found the humor in an earlier video, in which Kimmel's girlfriend Sarah Silverman confessed to getting down with Matt Damon, they approached the Indiana Jones star and found him more than willing to play a part. Ford was just one in a shockingly large group of celebs, including Brad Pitt, Robin Williams, Cameron Diaz and Josh Groban, who were eager to make an appearance in Kimmel's jokingly vengeful retort.Even with all that star power on hand, shooting the clip took quite a while. New York's Daily News reports that the scene in which Kimmel and Affleck almost kiss required 10 takes because the pair couldn't stop laughing. But all the hard work was worth it the video has already been vi...
If you thought Sarah Silverman's "I'm F**king Matt Damon" was the most hilarious video you'd ever seen, wait till you get a load of what Jimmy Kimmel did to strike back last night during his post-Oscar show. Not only did he whip up a ridiculously brilliant video featuring Matt Damon's "other half," Ben Affleck, as his love interest, but he also went on to recruit what appears to be all of Hollywood to serve as backup singers. Robin Williams, Don Cheadle, Cameron Diaz, Lance Bass, Josh Groban, Harrison Ford its an endless list! Brad Pitt even makes a cameo as the Fed Ex guy. All we can say after watching them walk away together in their cut-off short-shorts? Awesome. Just plain awesome. **Note: If the video is loading slowly, sit tight a lot of people are trying to watch this at the same time!And if you don't remember how this all started, check out Sarah Silverman's "I'm F**king Matt Damon" video below. Your take: Whose video do you think was better, Sarahs...

After watching this trailer, all we can say is
wow. We cant even begin to tell you how freakin awesome this movie looks, or how truly badass Harrison Ford is after all these years (19 to be precise).

The Jack Ryan Collection courtesy Paramount Home Entertainment
Last summer, fans of the movies based on Tom Clancy's popular books were thrilled to hear that Paramount Home Entertainment was announcing new cinema-quality high definition releases of all four films in The Jack Ryan Collection. These Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD sets would include Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin in The Hunt for Red October, Harrison Ford in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, and Ben Affleck with Morgan Freeman in The Sum of All Fears. The releases were all to be the "Special Collector's Edition" versions, incorporating all the bonus material found on the similarly titled DVDs... but with 1080p quality video!People, myself included, were excited, and this was certainly high on most want lists. The release date for versions in both formats was going to be Sept. 25th. But then, in August, Paramount announced that they would no longer support the Blu-ray format, and that effective immediately all future hi-def releases would be HD DVD only. A "BD" version of The Jac...

For Indiana Jones fans who can't wait another second for the smallest scrap of news about 2008's most eagerly awaited flick, you're in luck. The folks over at Lucas Films are graciously whettting our collective appetite for their top-secret sequel Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull with this production still featuring Shia LaBeouf, who reportedly plays Indy's son, alongside a decidedly older, and a bit more grizzled, fortune-hunting Harrison Ford. The dude in the background is none other than Ray Winstone, looking at lot more like his real-life portly self than the hunky, nearly naked motion-capture avatar he played in the computer animated Beowulf. Need more? You'll have to wait: Paramount isn't planning on releasing what promises to be the summer's biggest blockbuster until May 22, 2008, just in time to break a few Memorial Day records.Frankly, it all looks an awful lot like the previous three installments of the franchise; if LaBeouf were a small Vietnamese boy, ...

I was dazzled by Blade Runner from the first time I saw it on the day it opened in 1982 The cute n cuddly ET killed it at the box office and reviews were mixed everybody agreed that it was visually dazzling but most critics were underwhelmed by the story but over the years Blade Runners reputation has grown from cult classic to widely recognized masterpiece its often called the best science-fiction film ever made and its unquestionably one of the most influential Theres a new version of the film Blade Runner The Final Cut coming to DVD on Dec 18 following a limited theatrical re-release it was shown at the New York Film Festival last weekend But Blade Runner is great in any versionThe first movie based on a novel by sci-fi visionary Philip K Dick Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep Blade Runner is set in a decaying future Los Angeles where humanoid replicants do humanitys dirtiest jobs from fighting wars to staffing bro

When it comes to dressing up for Halloween, Adrian Pasdar's son has his own hero, Luke Skywalker. What does this mean for Pasdar? "I'll be dressing up as Han Solo." Pasdar doesn't have to work off imagination when pulling together his costume. He's met the real Han Solo, actor Harrison Ford. In fact, he recently sent a message to Ford on the set of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. "One of the makeup techs I was working with had to go over and do contact lens stuff for Harrison Ford," he recounts. "As a joke, I said, 'Tell Harrison he owes me five dollars and I haven't forgotten about it.'" The makeup staffer made good on the promise to deliver the missive and Pasdar got word back that Ford was sending him the five dollars. As for the fiver, "I haven't gotten it yet," reports Pasdar. "It's supposed to be on its way." Bekah Wright
George Lucas is feeling good about television. In his life post-Star Wars franchise, the legendary writer, director, producer, special-effects czar and mega-mogul is still embracing his legacy — the far-far-away galaxy he created for six films that changed the cinematic universe and became a part of world pop culture. But now a new medium will bear the message. In a conversation with TV Guide executive editor Steve Sonsky that began with a discussion of Fog City Mavericks, a Starz documentary (premiering Monday, Sept. 24, at 9 pm/ET) about the history of San Francisco-based filmmakers like himself, Francis Ford Coppola and Clint Eastwood, Lucas also held forth on the status of his two
