Piers Morgan challenges Harrison Ford to showdown

Harrison Ford has made no secret of the fact that he accidentally punched his co-star Ryan Gosling on set of Blade Runner 2049.

And Good Morning Britain’s Richard Arnold was keen on Piers Morgan getting the same treatment from the Hollywood silver fox, 75, as he asked him if he could punch the British TV host, 52, on Tuesday’s episode. 

Looking back at the interview on-screen, Piers seemed to be all guns blazing for the showdown as he noted that Harrison was keen on the idea.

‘The suggestion will not go un-ignored,’ Harrison cheekily told Richard as he sat alongside hunky Ryan. 

‘The suggestion will not go un-ignored!’ an outraged Piers copied the iconic Star Wars actor. 

Poking fun of the situation, Piers continued: ‘Well that’s a direct threat, isn’t it? Harrison Ford, Indiana Jones, has just made a direct clear threat to cause me physical harm!’

His annoyance wasn’t shared by co-host Susanna Reid, who admitted: ‘Right. And he’s welcome anytime according to Richard Arnold.’

Piers then fearlessly admitted: ‘Well, you know what? Bring it on Indiana, I’m ready for you buddy!’

The hilarious potential showdown came after Harrison and Ryan, 36, were clearly taken aback by Alison Hammond’s interview technique as they chatted with the presenter during an episode of This Morning last week. 

Kicking off proceedings, Alison, 42, quipped: ‘Bleak, dystopian, an absolute nightmare to be honest… and that’s just my interviewing technique. But let’s talk about the movie Blade Runner 2049…’

Clearly amused by the antics, Harrison joked: ‘Cheer up, it’s a lovely day in London lets keep it that way! Not the intro we were promised…’ 

As the trio collapsed in fits of giggles, Ryan held up a tumbler which appeared to be filled with whiskey, before Harrison also took a glug. 

Asked whether the pair had started drinking, Ryan quipped: ‘I feel this is where it’s headed,’ before the trio once again began laughing.

Attempting to steer the interview back on track, Alison approached Harrison, asking: ‘When you got the call to say, “we’re making another Blade Runner and we want you to be in it”, what was your reaction?’

But the events had taken a wry turn as he shot back ‘So what?’

Taking matters into his own hands, Ryan then tried to take control asking: ‘Is this an interview?… Do you guys need help with the cameras?’ before jumping up and taking control of one of the machines.

Blade Runner 2049 is the highly-anticipated sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic.

Harrison reprises his role as Rick Deckard while Ryan Gosling plays LAPD Officer K, a new Blade Runner who discovers a dark secret that could end humanity.

The discovery leads him to Deckard who disappeared 30 years ago with replicant Rachael, played by Sean Young in the original.
