USA Today briefly chats with actor Harrison Ford about the start of his film career and how he thinks Han Solo and Indy differ as characters.
He gives “no credit to the culture for embracing (Han) as a hero. He’s dumb as a stump! He’s certainly got a good heart, but I think he’s certainly a much less interesting character than Indiana Jones. The breadth of his story utility was never extensive. He was the foil between the other more compelling elements of the film. There’s not breadth of character to explore beyond what we got out of him.”
