Harrison Ford will never again be your dirty little smuggler

01.12.2010

Without a doubt, one of the coolest characters in cinematic history has to be Han Solo.

Well, some might figure that if Harrison Ford can play Indy at 66, would he play Han once more? It's not an issue of can't, the guy just doesn't want to.

As most STAR WARS fans know, there have been rumors of a third trilogy in 3D. Now that AVATAR is out, and didn't do too shabby, will those rumors turn into talks? Sadly, I have no answer for that one. George Lucas says that the stories have already been told through other creators and mediums such as books, comics, and video games.

Who knows if Lucas will get a wild hair up his ass and decide to return to a galaxy far, far away. All I know is Harrison Ford will never pilot the Millennium Falcon again. To hear it yourself, check out the video.

Extra Tidbit: Han's response to Leia's 'I love you' was 'I know'. How many guys do you think actually try to pull that shit off? Harrison Ford is the only guy who could get by with it.

Han Solo Trivia

It's a little known fact, even among Star Wars fans, that Han Solo originally had a different name in the script. Originally the character was called Leroy Solo, but was changed at the last minute because Mark Hamill had trouble pronouncing the letter "L". He actually worked with a speech coach to overcome the problem during the filming.

I'd like to see Harrison Ford pull off the recut of that scene from Family Guy: Something, Something, Something Dark Side... that would be epic on so many bad levels.

If you remember your Star Wars history, Ford didn't want to play Han Solo a third time, even. He said he thought Han Solo should have died after being frozen in carbonite.

I'm glad Ford isn't going to be Han Solo anymore. Lucas already ruined Darth Vader for us, I wouldn't want him to wreck Solo too.

Clueless Ford

Muttiana Jones IV was just as bad as the SW prequels. "Cool" Ford has missed that it's ok to be a SW-geek now.

He almost said "because Star Wars sucks now." Watch it again if you don't believe me.

Hmmmm

Good on you Harrison for good or bad you moved on with your career and while Han will be one of your more memorable characters , people need to get over themselves and accept the fact that you played a role well and then got on with your career.

Homeboy can't do it anymore

Besides the fact Ford can't play Han Solo because he forgot how to play it like he forgot how to play Indiana... did anybody else think Extraordinary Measures was a made for TV movie when they saw ads for it?

I swear, I thought to myself, "What's Harrison Ford doing in a Hallmark film? Wait... what's Brendan Fraser doing in a Hallmark movie with Harrison Ford? Wait... it's PG?! This is coming to theaters?"

I swear that was my thought process.

He forgot how to play Indiana? Ford was just as good as we was in the first three in Indy 4. He's always gonna be awesome as Indy.

No. Ford totally forgot how to play Indiana. Watch the opening shot of him, and he looks like a grumpy old man, playing a grumpy old man. The charm was all gone and so was the swagger. But to be fair, he did recapture it in about three stretches in the film.

I shit on pre- and post-Empire 'Star Wars'. Make a new Vader, Empire, and rebellion based trilogy set in the 20 years between 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'Star Wars' and renumber the original trilogy as Episodes 7-9.

never say never

well he may never play him again...but if he were required for a voice or a cameo I'm sure he'd listen. No one wants to see a 70-year-old Han Solo unless it is a cameo anyway.
