Harrison Ford is one of the greatest actors in the industry at the moment. The legendary American actor first rose to fame back in 1977 for portraying the iconic role of Han Solo in the original Star Wars movie series. Ford is one of the most established actors in the industry, having received multiple awards throughout his career spanning over 5 decades.
Although Harrison Ford is known to have played many iconic roles, there is a constant debate among the fans of the classics about who’d win in a fight between Han Solo from the original Star Wars movie series and Indiana Jones from the movie series of the same name. In a recent interview, the actor answered this question, in a way that everyone can truly expect of him.
Harrison Ford does not like doing interviews for his movies
Harrison Ford recently revealed in an interview that he does not like talking about new movies in interviews anymore. Even about the movies that he is going to be the lead character of, like Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. Ford is all set to reprise his role as the archeologist Indiana Jones for one last time in the movie, but he still does not like talking about it. He revealed that this is one of the reasons that he doesn’t like doing interviews as well. He said,
“I mean, I actually love this. I hate it and I love it. Because I get a chance to meet people who do what you do. I have total respect for the process. I just don’t have that much respect for me when I’m doing it, because I’m editor-in-charge of my life. And there are things that are just dumb for me to talk about, that are going to make it less interesting to go see my new movie. Our new movie—Jim’s new movie, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s new movie, Mads’s new movie, Disney’s new movie.”
Ford was interrupted by the interviewer at this point and said that movie is still called Indiana Jones, and he is still playing the lead character of the franchise. However, Harrison Ford replied, “Yeah, but I’m not Indiana Jones. I’m Harrison Ford—Harry Ford, in fact.”
The Fugitive actor settles the Han Solo vs Indiana Jones debate once and for all
Han Solo and Indiana Jones are two of the most iconic characters played by Harrison Ford. And ever since the actor took up both roles, there has been a debate among fans about who would win in a fight between the two characters. Han Solo definitely has the advantage with better technology, but Indiana Jones has the quicker draw and better feats in fistfights.
However, in a recent interview, the actor settled the debate once and for all in the most “Harrison Ford way” ever. He said,
“Well, they [Star Wars fans] usually ask me, ‘If there was a fight between Han Solo and Indiana Jones, who would fuckin’ win?’ And I say [voice rising, fingers drumming], ‘Me, asshole! I don’t want to fucking make shit up like that. I mean, what are you asking me that crap for?’”
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is all set to release on 30th June 2023. The movie already premiered at the 76th Cannes Film Festival and received some mixed reviews from critics. Despite that, Harrison Ford was praised for his final portrayal of Indiana Jones.
