Jimmy Fallon knows how to bring the best out of his guests on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” While that means playing flip cup with some and playing egg Russian Roulette with others, Fallon actually allowed Harrison Ford to pierce his ear when the actor came on the show to promote “Ender’s Game.”
“Because he’s one of the coolest people in history and I want to be like him, I’ve asked Harrison Ford to pierce my ear. I’ve never had my ear pierced. I’m very scared about this,” Fallon says to introduce the bit.
After minutes of build up and plenty of Ford teasing Fallon by making comments like, “It’s not going to hurt — me,” and, “You could bleed to death. This [cape] is just to catch the blood,” Ford actually pierces Fallon’s ear. To his credit, Fallon didn’t cry or shout when Ford pushed the needle through Fallon’s ear. He didn’t even blink twice when Ford put in the long red feather earring in his left ear.
“Harrison Ford just pierced my ear, you guys. This is great,” Fallon says at the end of the sketch, and even got Ford to wear a matching earring. Looking good, Jimmy! Here’s hoping your wife Nancy Juvonen actually does like the new style.
