There are certain benefits in playing the financial elite — such as the sharp threads and sunglasses — Harrison Ford, Liam Hemsworth and Gary Oldman get to show off in the upcoming espionage thriller Paranoia.
“It was a nice change of pace to come to work, put on a nice suit and stay clean all day,” said Hemsworth.
The benefits get even better in Paranoia, directed by Robert Luketic (coming to cinemas on October 4, 2013). In one scene, Jock Goddard (Ford) hands his hotshot new hire the keys to a $100,000-plus Fisker luxury hybrid car, leaving Hemsworth’s character “totally speechless.” “He cannot believe all of this is happening,” says Hemsworth.

Growing up in Chicago, Harrison Ford was always more of a Cubs fan than a Brooklyn Dodgers guy. However, after preparing for his role as baseball pioneer Branch Rickey, Ford found himself in a New York state of mind.
“The more research I did, the more impressed I was,” says Ford, who stars in 42, the story of Dodgers general manager Rickey and Jackie Robinson, who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947 (and wore the title number on his uniform).
