Sic Semper Harrison Ford???

Hey guys, it's Donnie...Harrison Ford has just gotten really...awkward of late. First there was Six Days, Seven Nights, in which he had a really bizarre onscreen love interest in Anne "I'm Not Crazy, I Swear...Well, Okay Maybe A Little Crazy...But Only On Tuesdays..." Heche. Then he pierced his ear and found an even more bizarre offscreen love interest in Callista "Why Doesn't David E. Kelley Return My Phone Calls?" Flockhart. Then there was Hollywood Homicide. I tried to watch that movie, but all I remember was that Officer Josh Hartnett was teaching yoga and Officer Harrison Ford was trying to sell a house to a rapper, and then I think I blacked out.

Well, while he waits for George Lucas to accept the end of the Star Wars and get off his ass to do Indy 4, Ford has just signed on to do Manhunt, which is based on a book that hasn't actually been published yet. The book is an hour by hour account of the the 12 day search for the assassin of Abraham Lincoln. Ford would play Col. Everton Conger, commander of the New York Cavalry and leader of the titular search effort. This is easily the coolest sounding project he's been attached to in quite some time, so let's hope it pays off. Between this and Spielberg's Lincoln biopic starring Liam Neeson (which he'll probably shoot over a long weekend), the cinematic future looks bright for that guy on the five-spot in your pocket.
