[ laughter ] they'll -- they're hoping i just have a slip and accidentally -- >> seth: yeah, yeah. di you know -- >> seth: that one dn't seem that accidental, yeah. >> no, no. [ laughter ] no, listen. you know, i -- how can you not have fun with it, though? >> seth: yeah. i >> i mean,s -- it's seriously, people say, "what was it like doing those movies?" and we just laughed all day long. >> seth: yeah this is one of -- this is a very famous photo. and i wa to bring it out, 'cause i -- it's just is so lovely, you know much fun you guys are having. [ cheers and applause ] and what was -- you know, what was it like working with -- again, 'cause it was the beginning for all of you. what was it like wg king with yorrison ford?
>> oh, my gosh. well, the thing is, he walked -- george likes to cast people that are so close to what he was. he doesn't have to really get in there and give you a lot of directions. >> seth: yeah. >> so, harrison walks in, and he's just too cool for school. [ light laughter ] i mean, i just -- instant idolization. you know, carrie was funny and witty and adorable. d we just -- we just immediately hit it off. it was perfect.d anrrison had a really firm grasp, like the overview. i think he'd make a really good director, if he weren't so lazy. [ laughter ] but we'll edit that out later. ] [ laughter but -- for instance, we were doing a scenwhere, it was right after we got out of the trash compactor. we hadn't filmed that scene yet. and i'm looking at continuity. and i said"wait a second, this is right after we got out of the trash compactor. shouldn't my hair be wet and matted with schmutz all through it?" and he turns to me, and says, "hey, kid, it ain't that kind of movie."
[ laughter and applause ] "if people are looking at your hair, we're all in big trouble." [ laughter and applause ] and i thought, "he's so -- [ cheers and applause ] he's so right." >> seth: he's so right >> and next time i saw him he said, "hey, i don't sound anything like that." [ laughter ] but, like i say, i mean, you'd have these moments of self awareness where you're standing in the cockpit waiting between --e 'cause once squibs go off you have to stand up there. "kids, if you can stay up instead of coming down, they're going to rewire and do another take." and i'd have this moment of self-awareness. to my right is one of the most venerated actors of the 20th century, sir alec guinness. >> seth: yeah. >> to my left is an eight foot guy in a dog costuming wearing headphones. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> what's wrong with this picture? >> seth: well, the crazy thing now is, obviously, you know, it's part ofyou know, our lexcon to say things like "lightsaber" and "death star." >> right, right, right. >> seth: but when you read the script, did it all seems so absurd before we knew what it
was going to look like >> well, what's amazing to me ih i was just overwhelmed. 'cause i got the part without having read the script i just did the screen test. so, i didn't know what the style was or whether it's a send-up like mel brooks or what. and then when i read it, it just hit me. i said, "this is more like 'wizard of oz.'" >> seth: yeah.n >> thaaditional science fiction. 'cause, i mean, "2001" is a stone cold claic. laugh riot, it ain't. >> seth: right. [ light laughter ] >> and this one was so funny. >> seth: yeah. >> i mean, it was so on a human level. i mean, we risk our lives to rescue the princess. she takes a look at whan we came in, said, "you came in that?" who says things like that. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> and robots arguing over whose fault it is. i mean, i knew i was a straight man. i though, "oh, every part is funnier than mine." but, you know, if you appreciate comedyyou realize what bud abbott is doing for lou costello.
>> seth: yeah. >> you know, so, you know, when you say to c-3po, "you know, that little friend of yours is going to get me in a lot of trouble." [ laughter ] "oh, he excels at that, sir." well, you -- >> seth: yeah, absolutely. >> if you're not familiar, then knock it outf the park. but, i leave it to george lucas to write a script where the robots get better lines than me. [ laughter ] >> seth: well, in the long run, i think it worked out for ierybody. >> oh, no, listen,ouldn't be happier. >> seth: it's very surreal to have you here. i spent a lot of time in my youth watching you. and it is just -- what a joy it is to have you here right now. >> well, in your adulthood, u should watch "nightfall" mondays, 10:00 p.m. on history channel.
