Yesterday, Harrison Ford participated in a Reddit AMA to promote the upcoming Showtime docuseries Years of Living Dangerously, which is about climate change. During the AMA, Ford fielded plenty of questions about his career, personal life, interests, and various other topics. Ford came off online as he usually does in interviews: charming when asked good questions, and not suffering fools when it comes to bad, fanboyish questions. My personal favorite was when someone asked, “Who shot first? Han Solo or Greedo?” and Ford responded, “I don’t know and I don’t care.” And if you think he’s being a curmudgeon, he also says he was happy to take small roles in Anchorman 2 and The Expendables 3 because they looked like fun even though he hadn’t seen the previous movies.
Hit the jump for more including Ford’s thoughts on Blade Runner 2.
Regarding his Expendables 3 appearance, Ford told Reddit how it came about:
I was on my way to Indonesia to do Years of Living Dangerously, and halfway around the world. And the location for Expendables was right on the way, and they asked me for a relatively short period of time, and it seemed like fun. I hadn’t seen the films but I looked one of them and i thought it was kind of funny, so I thought why not?
As for a project that would probably be more than a flyby, Ford was asked about his thoughts on Blade Runner 2. Six months ago, Ford said he had spoken with director Ridley Scott and “would be very happy to engage again with him in the further telling of this story.” When prompted about the project on Reddit, Ford replied:
I’m quite curious and excited about seeing a new script for Blade Runner if in fact the opportunity would exist to do another, if it’s a good script I would be very anxious to work with Ridley Scott again, he’s a very talented and passionate filmmaker. And I think it would be very interesting to revisit the character.
While Blade Runner is one of those movies I wish I liked more, it’s still encouraging to see Ford passionate about returning to one of his signature roles.
