Harrison Ford has had a long Hollywood career. He has appeared in film franchises like Blade Runner — as we all know from the 2021 Academy Awards ceremonyJack Ryan, Star Wars, and Indiana Jones.

This A-List status means that the now 78-year-old Academy Award-nominated actor has been called upon to make certain appearances in his life. One such appearance was being the celebrity guest on magician David Blaine’s David Blaine: Real Or Magic? (2013) film.

In the above video, which was originally from the 2013 magic documentary-style movie and has gone viral again following Ford’s memorable Oscars presentation, Blaine performs his impressive “think of a card” card trick, apparently in Ford’s kitchen.

The What Lies Beneath actor is shocked when his card of choice, the nine of hearts, is in an orange, of all things, from his kitchen counter after Blaine asserts the card has “left the deck”. In the background, a woman — possibly Ford’s actress wife, Calista Flockhart — can be heard saying, “No way!”

Ford’s reaction is less G-rated, so you’ll just have to watch the clip to see exactly how the amazing magic trick goes down.

Among the many who have reshared this once-again-viral video is Entertainment Tonight Canada, who wrote:

Prior to reprising his role as the title character in the Indiana Jones franchise, Ford joined Star Wars original trilogy costars Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia Organa) and Mark Hamill (Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker) in the sequel trilogy.

This was the first time the trio had acted together since George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to The Walt Disney Company in 2012. It was also the first time they worked together under current Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, rather than Lucas himself.
