Harrison Ford Can't Remember Ryan Gosling's Name And It's Brilliant

I'm not sure if it's because it looks as though Ford, who is notoriously gruff and abrupt in interviews, is enjoying fucking with everyone or the fact that he might genuinely not remember Gosling's name. I don't know which I prefer, to be honest.
The pair were chatting to Graham Norton to promote their brand new film Blade Runner 2049, which is out this weekend.

Ford eventually turns into a joke, checking that his name is Ryan for a second time, before Gosling asks: "Did you say Rosling?"
I mean, fair play. He's 75 years old, you're allowed to forget names when you're in your 70s. My nan's in her 70s, she gets my name wrong every single time, and she wasn't Han Solo. So, we can cut Ford some slack here.
It's likely that he won't hold it against him, though. Gosling has previously admitted to being a big fan of Ford, he told news.com.au: "He's in a class of his own. We all should be so lucky if a little bit of that magic rubs off on us."

He also told the publication that in one scene, when Ford throws a punch at him it actually landed.
Although, if the rave reviews from critics are anything to go by, then the punch to the face was totally worth it.
The Telegraph gave Blade Runner 2049 five stars out of five, writing: "Harrison Ford is extraordinary in the most spectacular, provocative blockbuster of our time."
Likewise, The Guardian also lashed five whole stars its way, calling it a 'narcotic spectacle of eerie and pitiless vastness, by turns satirical, tragic and romantic'.
The film sees Ford reprise his role as Rick Deckard from the 1982 original, alongside Gosling, who plays Officer K, the man tasked with tracking down Deckard, who he believes is the key to saving
civilisation. Sounds good to me.
There's even talk of Oscar nominations, which is sure to be music to Gosling's ears, as he narrowly missed out on the Best Actor gong earlier this year, for his role in La La Land.
