First of all, it’s hard to deny that Harrison Ford still has it. Between Episode VII buzz, Blade Runner 2 rumors, and all of this Enders Game press, the 71 year old is one of the most talked about actors in Hollywood right now.
And in a recent interview on Graham Nortons talk show, Ford said something that peaked our interest. The actor has been rumored for some time to be in negotiations for JJ Abrams Star Wars: Episode VII, to once again star alongside Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. No castings have been confirmed from Disney, but a lot of sources close to the production were saying that their involvement was likely a done deal.
But up until now Ford has either spoken in riddles on the matter, or has just avoided questions period about Star Wars. But while appearing on Graham Norton’s talk show, Ford said something that kinda peaked our interest. He told the host that he hasn’t decided yet on whether or not he wants to reprise his role of Han Solo in the new film and literally said “I’ve not quite made the choice.”
Now, we aren’t sure if this is Ford’s way of throwing us off the scent but we certainly don’t like feeling like Han Solo is having a hard time choosing to come back to the franchise.
But, Ford did say that he would be interested in coming back for a fifth Indiana Jones movie if that ever happened, even though he’s getting a bit older saying quote “I would do it in a New York minute. I don’t think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart. I’m old enough that we don’t need (Sean) Connery any more. ‘I’m old enough to play my own father!’
We also reported to you that Ford mentioned that he had been in talks with Ridley Scott about appearing in a Blade Runner 2, although we are confident that seeing that happen would be many, many years down the road, if it were ever to happen at all.
But back to Star Wars casting for a moment. We have another actor who is coming out to say that he has auditioned for the project, and that my friends is Michael B Jordan. Jordan is a hot talent right now in Hollywood, and he has been rumored to be in negotiations for several big properties including the Fantastic Four reboot and even the Independence Day sequel. But Jordan admitted to the Huffington Post that he had auditioned for Star Wars and that quote “everybody’s going in on this project. They’re trying to figure out what they want,” he said. “That’s another incredible franchise. It’s pretty crazy! … We’ll see how it happens. I don’t know how I can do everything.”
So, what do you all think about Harrison Ford’s indecision? Do you think he’s putting on an act for the cameras? And are you all fans of Michael B Jordan?
