"I know who you are."
The 1990s were a good decade for Harrison Ford, even without playing a character named "han" or "Indiana." After taking over as Tom Clancy character Jack Ryan for 1992's Patriot Games, Ford followed with 1993's The Fugitive, which became one of the biggest hits of Ford's career. Not even 1997's Air Force One could eclipse The Fugitive's box office receipts, though it came close.
Ford finished out the decade with 1999's Random Hearts, which saw Ford play Washington, D.C. police officer William "Dutch" Van Den Broeck, who learns that his wife was unfaithful only after losing her in an airplane crash. The incident forces Dutch to cross paths with Congresswoman Kay Chandler, whose husband was having the affair with his wife and was on the same plane. Based on the novel of the same name by William ADler (War of the Roses, Random Hearts was the penultimate movie for director by Sydney Pollack (Out of Africa, Tootsie), who passed away in 2008.
Random Hearts airs at 8PM ET/5PM PT on Reelz.
