Hollywood Legend Harrison Ford Fires Back at Alec Baldwin: ‘F*ck Him’

Hollywood legend Harrison Ford has fired back at embattled actor Alec Baldwin over a dispute about a movie role the two wanted.

Baldwin is waiting to stand trial in the fatal “Rust” shooting while Ford is now starring in the hit Paramount show “1923.”

After Baldwin starred in “The Hunt For Red October” in 1990 as Jack Ryan, one of Tom Clancy’s most iconic characters, he thought he was a lock to star in the sequel, “Patriot Games.”

But Ford swooped in and took the plum role in the movie, enraging Baldwin.

Baldwin wrote about his disappointment in his book.

A bitter Baldwin said:

“Usually, I have given a half-truth as an answer, something about scheduling conflicts and so forth.

“But the truth is the studio cut my throat.

“Director John McTiernan further told me that Paramount owed the actor [Ford] a large sum of money for a greenlit film that fell apart prior to this, and pushing me aside would help to alleviate that debt and put someone with much greater strength at the box office than mine in the role.

“I sat there mildly stunned because not only was I in an active negotiation with Paramount but for them to negotiate simultaneously with another actor was against the law.”

“Ford, in person, is a little man, short, scrawny, and wiry, whose soft voice sounds as if it’s coming from behind a door.”

According to Baldwin, Ford was asked at the time by McTiernan if he knew he was taking Baldwin’s role.

Ford didn’t miss a beat and fired back saying: “F*ck him.”

Harrison Ford got the last laugh and ended up playing the beloved Tom Clancy character not only in “Patriot Games” but also in “Clear And Present Danger.”

Baldwin never played Jack Ryan again.
