Harrison Ford: Han Solo should've died in 'Star Wars', wasn't interesting

11/11/2010 by Corinne Heller

Harrison Ford says that he thinks his "Star Wars" character, Han Solo, should have died in the final film of the first trilogy, "Return of the Jedi".

Ford, a 68-old actor who played the mercenary in all three "Star Wars" films in the 1970s and 1980s and who stars in the new romantic comedy movie "Morning Glory", made his comments in a recent interview with ABC News.

"As a character he was not so interesting to me. I thought he should have died in the last one, just to give it some bottom. George (Lucas) didn't think there was any future in dead Han toys."

In "Morning Glory", which was released on Wednesday, Ford plays a television anchor who spars with his co-anchor, played by Diane Keaton. Rachel McAdams plays a news producer who tries to save their failing morning program.
