Watch Harrison Ford Evade Recent 'Star Wars' Questions

The actor appeared on 'The Late Show with David Letterman', 'ET' and 'Good Morning America', neither confirming nor denying his involvement in the sequel.

Harrison Ford arrived on the set of Late Show with David Letterman to promote his latest movie 42, and of course he was hit by the inevitable Star Wars: Episode VII question. Will he be in the movie? Watch as Ford, who has long been said to return as iconic character Han Solo, deflects the question in a very humorous, confused grandpa sort of way.

When asked if Harrison Ford was returning in Star Wars: Episode VII by David Letterman, the Hollywood icon feigned hurt and rejection for not being asked back a long time ago.

"I was only in three. For a long time, they didn't ask me. So imagine how I feel. So let's just let it [be]..."

Harrison Ford also appeared on Entertainment Tonight, where he pantomimed his involvement in the sequel, and then on Good Morning America, where he claims he hasn't been invited to the party yet, but he promises his performance will be 'average'.

Star Wars: Episode VII comes to theaters December 18th, 2015 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.

    From what he said in those three video interviews, it pretty much sounds like he is going to be in Star Wars 7.But, he cannot say a whole lot like they(the studio) that are keeping things very secret. He'll be in star Wars 7.

    I think MW needs to focus on indie films more, just watched Edges of Darkness and while it has moments of boredom I still enjoyed it.
    I'm getting tired of reading the same article's over and over again.
    MW please think outside the box, there's a lot of Indie films or low rated films that are quite good. Please help promote them as well.

    Why is this even an article? I'm not bitching on movieweb, but I honestly don't think the fact that Ford is dodging questions regarding his appearance in Star Wars qualifies as relevant, must-have news. Movieweb, nay, film sites in general, need to stop paying such adamant attention to large films (superhero films, blockbusters, etc) and focus a little of that attention into films that aren't getting enough coverage. People are going to see the tent-pole films regardless, and bringing in viewers to the site is equally as possible when you throw out more variety. Just my two cents..
