Harrison Ford Gives A Little Writing Advice

I suppose I'll eventually tire of watching Harrison Ford's recent interviews promoting Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but that day hasn't come yet. I'm fascinated by the actors way of expressing himself, and was caught off guard when he gave a bit of writing advice in the middle of an interview with MTV. Of course the advice wasn't intentional. It was more a mocking of George Lucas.

The bit started with:

"George, you can type this sh**, but you can't say it. Move your mouth while you're typing and see if you can say it."

Ford explained the difference between a writer typing behind a keyboard and the actor being able to say what said writer wants. It's quite funny, but it also brings up a good point for any aspiring screenwriters out there.

He ended,

"I think it's still valuable advice."
