    I didn't see posted anywhere so here's the reddit Q&A that Harrison did yesterday. http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/22xh4j/i_am_harrison_harrison_ford_ama/

    There are a couple of good star wars references, but sadly nothing Episode VII related.

    The best part is when someone asks who shot first, Han or Greedo, and Ford answers: "I dont know and I don't care".

    Classic Ford and classic Han.

    i like that in order to prove it was really him doing the AMA he posted something on Twitter - even though he doesn't have his own account.

    The "I love you" from a fan and the "I know" answer from Harrison is pretty classic too. He also says that he'd beat Mark in a fight. In fact he answered a good chunk of star wars questions, I think he's warming up to Star Wars again.

    Very exciting times ahead indeed.

    What if Ford didn't like the script?

    Could that be a reason why JJ and Kasden retooled the script? [face_thinking]

    I wouldn't be surprised. It's not uncommon for actors to want a scrip rewritten before they sign on and Ford is no different. Raiders and Blade Runner are two examples of his wanting a script fine tuned before filming actually began. (Although I think with Raiders it was more reworking scenes during production and Blade Runner was more pre-production "suggestions")

    Harrison: George, I want you to kill me off in Jedi.
    George: No, sorry. I can't do it. Now come on, let's do another one and this time do it faster and more intense.

    ***

    Harrison: J.J., I want you to kill me off in the first new Star Wars movie. I can't do two more after that.
    J.J.: Sure, sure, Mr. Ford, whatever you want.

    By all rumors he would've liked Arndt's script better as if focused on Han's children with little use of Luke. The rewrite supposedly increased Luke's role requiring Mark for the entire shooting schedule and refocused the plot on Luke and his line.

    Here's a recent photo of Harrison. Of course the beard could go in time for production but I would kinda like the new Han Solo look.

    Looking forward to Harrison being in it and from the interview he is quite funny. Since Han was a focus for alot of humour in the OT I can see an "old fossil" joke coming back to haunt Han in Epsiode VII.

    Goatee Han for Episode 7! Why not? Earring may be a tad much.

    A lot has been made about Mark and Carrie having to get in shape for Ep. VII. It's funny, Ford is the oldest of the group by a decade and all he needs to do is shave off his goatee.

    Harrison can't be that picky about a script. After all, he did Cowboys and Aliens and Crystal Skull.

    Maybe he wasn't into the idea of Daddy Han and likes him better as a supporting character for Luke (which is what Han should be anyway).

    That would be an awesome look. Now if we could just get Mark to grow a beard.

    ... and Carrie
