The star of movies such as Ender's Game, Star Wars and Blade Runner turned up to film a cameo for the upcoming sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
"We worked a 16-hour-long day with him, and the whole day we just couldn't believe it was Harrison Ford!" Will told Total Film.
The actor, who reprised his Anchorman alter-ego Ron Burgundy for the MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam, couldn't believe Harrison had signed on for a role.
He added: "It's stupid why he would want to do it. Bless him."
Will, who also co-wrote the film with director Adam McKay and is one of the producers, said filming the follow-up to the 2004 comedy has been more fun than work.
"The great thing is we've all done so many movies since Anchorman, so there's much more of a comfort level," he explained.
"Everyone's actually got better at improvising and knowing these characters. With the sequel, it's a real opportunity, especially with such a time gap, to be as crazy and have as much fun as we want."
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues will open on December 20.
