Harrison Ford Slated to Reprise His Role as "Han Solo" in Star Wars VII, for a Compensation Package Rumored to Include Parking, Soup

It was between this and the sequel to Six Days, Seven Nights, tentatively titled "Aggressive Tax Gambit."

I suppose it will be okay to see Han Solo make a quick appearance (which, I am guaranteeing you right now, will involve shooting a Greedo (whatever) first-- it's instant audience cheers).

Han Solo still casts a long shadow in filmed science fiction.

Joss Whedon's pitch for Firefly was, "It's like Han Solo... but in space."

Alec Guinness was a classically trained Shakespearean actor. Harrison Ford, much as I like his stuff, is not.

He's just going to look sad and kinda pathetic. Like Jeff Bridges in Tron Legacy.
