“He was a really sweet man; Nice man,” Ford recalled. “He had a hard time physically. It was really hard for him to do what he did for us, all of us, and he did it with real dignity and class. He was a really neat guy. I miss him.”

Also during the interview, Ford and Fallon had something of a joke-off, with each of them taking turns telling each other some pretty elaborate jokes to give the other a good laugh.
