Top 10 Underrated Harrison Ford Roles
06.12.14 by Ryan
Back in April, the first cast photo for Star Wars: Episode VII was released, revealing the new cast members that will be joining the popular franchise alongside returning cast members Mark Hamill, who will reprise his role of Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher, who will be back as Leia Organa and, probably most exciting of all for Star Wars fans, Harrison Ford, who will reprise his role of intergalactic badass Han Solo. This isn't the first time Ford has reprized one of his iconic characters, playing Indiana Jones for a fourth time after nearly a twenty year break in 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and the actor is in no shortage of iconic roles, with Ford recently being sought to reprise his role as of Rick Deckard in a Blade Runner sequel. Outside of his own franchises, Ford is busier than ever, taking part in other franchises such as last year's Anchorman: The Legend Continues and an upcoming role in The Expendables 3. With all this attention, can Ford really be underrated?
The answer, of course, is yes. For every Han Solo, Indiana Jones or Jack Ryan, there's a Linus Larabee, a Henry Turner, or a Jack Trainer. Sure, fans can't stop chatting online about what Ford will be doing in Episode VII, but what about his first collaboration with director J.J. Abrams, 1991's Regarding Henry? (Abrams wrote the script.) Then there's two movies to choose from as well as turns in Apocalypse Now and who could forget Ford fighting for his plane in Air Force One?
