Thank you.

I watched last night through the plate glass scene.

Thanks for the deep background. Are you in the industry? I appreciate your deep knowledge, and sharing it here.

Here’s a crazy thought. I really have always struggled with Harrison Ford as Deckard. As I’ve read about the making of Blade Runner - Ford was quite upset about the many times he had to record and RE-record the voice over narratives. My guess is - Ridley Scott felt there was a plastic nature to Fords presentation, and was doing his best to add character to the role. And my guess is Harrison Ford knew this was all about addressing his shortcomings as a character actor - and resented it.

Imagine if Edward James Olmos had been given the lead. Nothing I can find says he was considered. But - they really created a role for him in this movie. I like to imagine it was their way of making up for choosing box office sales over a true charter actor.
