Harrison Ford Would Revisit Jack Ryan

by at . Comments

Now that Harrison Ford has successfully brought Indiana Jones back to the big screen (you might have heard), questions about reinventing his past characters have come up.

Ford as Ryan

The veteran actor is putting them to rest, though. Mostly.

"Han Solo isn't interesting to me. It's a very narrow sort of utility in the story and it was great for my career and it was fun to play at the time but I wouldn't go back there again," Ford told UK's The Sun.

He went on to explain his belief in why certain characters are better than other for re-exploration.

"There are characters that it seems to me are worth re-exploring given that the story advances your understanding of the character and deepens your relationship to that character and takes you into an area that's new and unexpected."

For example, what about Jack Ryan? Could Ford see himself starring in another movie based on a Tom Clancy novel? He doesn't rule it out.

"The Ryan films... I thought worth re-exploring again, but I wasn't a huge fan of the book on which the last one was based... I thought it was more out of date than the others so I think they made a cracking good shot at it and I think Ben Affleck (who starred in The Sum of All Fears) is very, very talented...

But again, that's a character that I think you could revisit acknowledging the passage of time and his increasing age."

What do you think, folks? Could you see Ford as Jack Ryan again? Or does this star need to find new roles?
