Harrison Ford was in Dallas, TX last night to promote his new film, Extraordinary Measures. MGF was fortunate enough to attend the Red Carpet Event for the film that took place at North Park Mall's AMC Theaters. Is this movie a "genre" movie? No, but if you think that I'm going to blow off a chance to meet my absolute "Number 1 Favorite Actor To Talk To Before I Die" over something like that you've lost your mind. I'll watch anything Ford's in. He was an extremely friendly guy and was very warm towards everyone, including the rather robust press dude sticking the smallest video camera seen that night in his face. When I told him I was going to shoot a little video interview with him on my Kodak Zi6, his face broke out into that signature smile and said,
"You really are going to take a little video."
More coverage of the Red Carpet event will be coming in the next couple of days, including photos and an article. Check out our interview with the legendary Mr. Ford after the jump.
From his working class roots, John Crowley has finally begun to taste success in corporate America. Supported by his beautiful wife Aileen and their three children, John is on the fast track. But just as his career is taking off, Crowley walks away from it all when his two youngest children, Megan and Patrick, are diagnosed with a fatal disease. With Aileen by his side, harnessing all of his skill and determination, Crowley teams up with a brilliant, but unappreciated and unconventional scientist, Dr. Robert Stonehill. Together they form a bio-tech company focused on developing a life-saving drug. One driven to prove himself and his theories, the other by a chance to save his children, this unlikely alliance eventually develops into mutual respect as they battle the medical and business establishments in a fight against the system and time. But, at the last minute, when it appears that a solution has been found, the relationship between the two men faces a final test - the outcome of which will affect the fate of John's children.
Extraordinary Measures was directed by Tom Vaughan and stars Harrison Ford, Brendan Fraser, Keri Russell, Meredith Droeger, and Jared Harris.
The film comes out on January 22nd.
