Ford tries the funny

Aside form INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL, Harrison Ford hasn't exactly been a workaholic these past few years. Either that or he's made a bunch of movies that were so unmemorable, I've already forgotten them.

The good doctor / space pirate / curmudgeonly actor is hoping to get some magic back with a new comedy called MORNING GLORY, from producer JJ Abrams (ALIAS, LOST, STAR TREK). Ford will star with Rachel McAdams in the flick (along with another yet-to-be-named female lead) about dueling anchors on a struggling morning show. 

The script comes from Aline Brosh McKenna (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA) and the Paramount project will be directed by Roger Michell (CHANGING LANES, NOTTING HILL). Decent enough talent involved... although the last time Ford went for laughs (aside from the wry line delivery of his famous heroes), we got SIX DAYS SEVEN NIGHTS and HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE. Hmmm, maybe another INDIANA JONES movie doesn't sound so bad...

Extra Tidbit: REGARDING HENRY -- that was a comedy, right? Sure seemed like it.
