'Indiana Jones' Role Still Interests Harrison Ford VIDEO
Indiana Jones isn't ready to hang up his whip and fedora quite yet.
Harrison Ford recently stated that he wouldn't mind portraying the daring archeologist at least once more.
"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass," Ford said, according to The Telegraph.
Now in his early 70s, Ford's career has not slowed down with age. In 2008, the actor reprised his role as the Nazi fighting professor in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. This year alone Ford is appearing in four films, including the upcoming adaptation of Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game.
However, Ford recognizes that attempting to portray Indiana Jones as the same man he was in the early '80s would be impossible.
"To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive," Ford told The Telegraph. "That I can do."
Rumored to make an apperence in Star Wars: Epsiode VII in his other classic role, Ford will probably take a more sedated approach to that film as well.
