Chris Hardwick wants Princess Leia to have a proper farewell. The longtime Star Wars superfan and creator of Nerdist appeared on Watch What Happens Live! where he talked about the recent passing of actress Carrie Fisher.
“I think they should address it. I definitely think they should address it, and I think she should have a really amazing... I don't think it should just be, 'Oh, she's not here anymore!'” he said of the franchise acknowledging Fisher’s death. “I definitely think they should honor her.”
He went on to praise the iconic star, adding, “She is such a pillar of our culture and Carrie was such an incredible woman, so funny, so honest and such a force of nature. If you guys get a chance, her roast of George Lucas at the AFI thing is one of the funniest things. She was so incredible and it's such huge loss so I hope they address it in an honorable way.”
Hardwick himself has been keeping busy with a handful of gigs, including hosting The Talking Dead and filling in as a guest co-host for Live With Kelly!
When Cohen asked if Hardwick would consider taking on the daytime talk show as a full time gig, he said, “I love doing it and I guess I would have to see if they ask me and I don't think I would stop doing anything that I'm currently doing but if I could do everything, I would say I would really strongly consider it.”
