You never know who likes what you do. Surely it’s crossed my mind in my last two and a half years writing for the DopeHouse exactly who has read something I’ve wrote and, hell, maybe even liked it and kept up with it. Sometimes you never find out until long after the work is done, if at all.
For Action Bronson, his fan group covers a wide demographic. There’s his fans who have followed him from his beginnings as a rapper, of course. But he also has world-renowned chefs, television hosts, moms watching daytime TV and plenty more in-between who enjoy what Bronson does, many whom I’m sure Bam Bam never expected to acknowledge what he’s done. And if he never expected someone like Mario Batali to compliment a sandwich he made, then he definitely never expected Harrison Ford to say he liked Bronson’s VICELAND television show, Fuck, That’s Delicious.
The legendary movie star reprised one of his most iconic roles recently: Rick Deckard from Blade Runner. The movie’s sequel, Blade Runner 2049, is set to land in theaters October 6. Ford was the subject of a lengthy profile in GQ, where he and writer Chris Heath discussed a range of topics from Star Wars to his career to punching Ryan Gosling in the face. Ford also brought up VICELAND.
“Do you ever watch Vice? Vice television?” he asked Heath.
Not so often. You do? Heath responded.
“Well, they’ve got a show called Fuck, That’s Delicious.”
How do you even know about that? Heath reasonably questioned.
“Well, I met one of the correspondents at my son Malcolm’s apartment,” Ford explained “He was sleeping on the couch. Very, very smart guy. And so I started watching it, and it’s really, really interesting. Some of it. Just, you know, a distracting and interesting glimpse into somebody else’s world.”
Ford then apparently looked at the fritata in front of him and thought, “Fuck, that’s delicious.”
And there you have it.
Harrison Ford likes Fuck, That’s Delicious, and
Mia Malkova Kendrick Lamar likes my writing. (Maybe.)
