Believe it or not, Walt Disney Studios announced that a fifth Indiana Jones film is set for release in July 2020. That did not end up happening. The film is now set to be released in 2023. The sequel will obviously star Ford, who publicly stated that he will never agree to give up the role for anyone younger.
Although many are skeptical about the potential for the film to actually work, Ford is already known for playing in a handful of highly successful sequels that were not originally set to take place. The best example of this is Blade Runner 2049, which ended up being a surprise hit and arguably the best film of 2017. We’re definitely holding our hands for Indy!
Friendship With Liam Neeson
Ford’s personal life and friendships have been quite private, as the actor takes great measures to keep them out of the mainstream. However, he often appears with famous actor Liam Neeson at many events and occasions, and the two appear to be quite comfortable with each other. The two have only starred in one film together, which was 2002's historical thriller, K-19: The Widowmaker.
The film ended up being a huge disappointment both in terms of box office revenue and for having mostly negative reviews. Despite the film's failure, Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson's friendship has continued over the years. They have been spotted attending events and award ceremonies together, and they even appeared on The Graham Norton Show together in 2017.
Baby Boy. Baby. Evil.
Harrison Ford accidentally created an extremely popular meme during an interview with Le Petit Journal. The reporter held a series of photographs and asked Ford to say what first came to his mind. When shown a poster of Han Solo, the actor responded by saying, "Baby boy, Baby." He was then shown a picture of Darth Vader and promptly said, "Evil."
Although the moment didn’t get much media attention, it became a phenomenon with younger internet users. More than a thousand memes involving Ford’s interview were created. The meme became popular, and it was used in various contexts, ranging from politics to pop culture. Ford was surprised by the response and was amused by the sudden surge in popularity.
His First Voice Over Role
Despite being an active actor ever since 1966, it took Ford more than five decades before he appeared in his first voiceover for an animated film. His appearance was in Universal Pictures' animated comedy film, The Secret Life of Pets 2, where the actor portrayed a sheepdog named Rooster.
The film received mixed reviews from critics but ended up grossing more than $400 million against a budget of $80 million. Ford got a chance to act with various long-time comedy legends such as Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, and Dana Carvey.
He Loves BMWs
Harrison can occasionally be spotted driving down the streets of Los Angeles in his various custom-made BMW motorcycles. He usually wears a black bandana and special sunglasses to hide his appearance. However, he’s usually spotted by the paparazzi within an hour or two anyway. He can be seen here tending to one of his motorcycles, which we presume is a really fast BMW.
His passion for aviation has also led him to work with the Experimental Aircraft Association's Young Eagles program, which introduces young people to the world of flying. We have to admit, the actor definitely looks like one of those motorcycle-riding grandpas at this point. But we definitely won’t mind if he was our grandpa.
