Harrison Ford, George Takei Lead 2016 California Hall of Fame Class
Harrison Ford and George Takei will be inducted into the California Hall of Fame later this month. The actors will be honored alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ex-wife Maria Shriver, author Isabel Allende, former baseball player Tony Gwynn, artist Corita Kent, former U.S. Secretary of Defense William J. Perry, and music entrepreneur Russ Solomon on November 30 at the California Museum in Sacramento.
On December 1, an exhibit of the inductees’ items, including Ford’s Indiana Jones costume from Raiders of the Lost Ark and Takei’s Hikaru Sulu costume from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, will go on display at the Hall of Fame. “I am a proud second-generation Californian, humbled to be honored by a state singular in its beauty, diversity and dynamism,” Takei said in a statement. Former state governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Shriver established the California Hall of Fame in 2006. There are currently 96 inductees. It’s a bit of good news for Ford especially, considering most of his week has revolved around affair revelations from Carrie Fisher’s upcoming memoir.
