Before They Were Stars: John Leguizamo Shoots Harrison Ford in “Regarding Henry”

You obviously know that J.J. Abrams is the director of the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, but did you know that this movie has allowed him to reunite with Harrison Ford after 24 years? Not a lot of people know that Abrams (then going by the name Jeffrey Abrams) wrote the spec script for the 1991 drama, Regarding Henry, in which Ford played the decidedly non-Han Solo-esque role of a lawyer who suffers serious brain damage¬†after being shot during a robbery. Abrams also had a small role as a delivery boy in the film, but if that wasn’t enough “Before They Were Stars” material, the gunman who fires the near-fatal bullet¬†is a young John Leguizamo, who gets one whole line of dialogue before he comes closer to murdering Harrison Ford than pretty much any other character in cinema history.
