Ford of the Day

is Harrison Ford (born July 13, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois). His maternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Minsk, Belarus who met in Brooklyn. His Catholic paternal grandparents were John Fitzgerald Ford (an Irish American vaudeville performer) and Florence Veronica Niehaus (a German American). Harrison, when asked as to what religion he was raised in, jokingly responded, "Democrat." Ford has also said that he feels "Irish as a person but I feel Jewish as an actor".
