    Can we get confirmation on this that this is indeed Harrison Ford?

    Doubtful. He's doing a practical stunt. Maybe Terry Leonard.

    Um....no.

    I can't count the number of incorrect things I've heard come out of the mouth of Universal Studios Tour Guides.

    Sort of related, wasn't Ford one of Elliots' teachers in ET? Or the principal? Scene was cut, of course, but I seem to remember that.

    Yes but you never see his face.

    Steven Spielberg appears at the end of the Blues Brothers and John Landis is the motorcycle messenger in 1941.

    Yup, that's the giveaway.

    BTTF was 85, ToD was 84...so here's a ToD screencap of what Harrison would have looked like:

    The guy in the pic looks nothing like Ford!

    What flight of fancy induced anyone to think it actually was??

    Definitely NOT Ford. Ford WAS, however, Elliott's principal in "E.T.". The scene was shot but cut. He apparently starts lecturing Elliott then slowly turns in his chair to look out of the window behind him. While he's yammering away Elliott's chair begins to levitate. Ford keeps yammering but by the time he's turned back around the chair has descended. I've never seen this footage but it is in the novelization and they did release a still of Elliott & the chair suspended in air on, of all things, one of the "E.T." bubblegum cards! I still have that one, actually.
