Harrison Ford stable after crash landing

Officials have confirmed that Harrison Ford was indeed involved in a crash landing at an L.A. area golf course this afternoon. Ford is in stable condition, People reports. A family member told the local NBC station that the actor is fine and suffered only a few gashes. And his son, Ben Ford, tweeted “At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.”

UPDATE: Ford’s publicist has released a statement:

Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.

The pilot’s injuries were classified as “fair to moderate” by first responders. TMZ was first to report the crash.

You said it, Chewie.

Mark Hamill will be at Celebration Anaheim

hamill-beard-gotgMark Hamill appearing at Celebration Anaheim isn’t exactly a surprise – it’ll be his third Celebration, and he’s in that little movie due in December – but good to know.

I saw his chat with James Arnold Taylor at Celebration VI, and it was a lot of fun.

Hamill is the latest addition to a lineup of guests that includes J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, Carrie Fisher and more.
