Mum is clearly still the word when it comes to the “Star Wars” universe
Harrison Ford dropped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday primarily to pimp the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” home video release — but the actor also spoke about another famous role he’ll soon be reprising: Indiana Jones.
Jimmy Kimmel wondered aloud if Ford agreed to don the fedora once again because producers finally came up with a suitable idea. Ford concurred, but he was referring to something on paper other than the screenplay.
“I haven’t read the script,” he quipped, “I’m talking about the contract!”
But seriously, folks: “It’s great fun to play this character, it’s great fun to work with Steven [Spielberg] — I’m looking forward to it,” Ford said.
The two men then talked about Ford’s onscreen death in the latest “Star Wars,” something the star has wanted for a while.
“I argued for 30 years for this to happen, and finally, I wore ‘em down,” Ford said.
But when asked point-blank if Han Solo will somehow continue on in the future, Ford avoided the question with a great topic-change.
“Do you know how much money you can make selling reverse mortgages?” he joked. “It’s a goldmine.”
The character of Solo will return with Chewbacca for an origin story, but that will clearly not star Ford.
