Harrison Ford as a temperamental anchorman? Yeah, we can picture it.
Ford will star in Morning Glory, a comedy set in the world of TV news.
Ford plays a grizzled old-school anchor, who quits in disgust with the gossip-heavy direction of the evening newscast. He is then recruited by a hot up-and-coming producer to help revive a morning talk show, only to be paired with his rival.
Ford’s last starring comedy role was in 1995’s Sabrina remake. Prior to that, he won praise for his turn in 1988’s Oscar nominated Working Girl.
