It has long been assumed that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Han Solo in J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII," but you know what they say about assumptions. In an interview with Graham Norton, Ford hemmed and hawed when asked about his role, then joked that he had "not quite made the choice" to return because of the idea that Han Solo could be running a bed and breakfast with Princess Leia.
Ford has been careful to not confirm his involvement in "Episode VII," but he did tell WGN TV in March that things were getting close. "I think it's almost true," he said of a possible "Star Wars" return, which was first reported back in February. "I'm looking forward to it. It's not in the bag yet, but I think it'll happen."
While Ford contemplates making the Kessel Run once again, the actor told Norton that he is totally onboard for another Indiana Jones film.
"I would do it in a New York minute, yes," Ford said. "I don't think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart."
Ford made similar comments to The Telegraph this past summer.
"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass," Ford said.
"Star Wars: Episode VII" is set for release in 2015. Conspiracy theorists will note that Ford's "Graham Norton Show" appearance happened opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, another actor who has been connected to this iteration of "Star Wars." Watch video of the pair above, and see if Cumberbatch does a good job of denying that claim.
