Although Harrison Ford previously declined to offer advice to actors auditioning to play young Han Solo in the upcoming "Star Wars" spinoff, now that he's promoting the Blu-ray/DVD release of "The Force Awakens," he's a little more forthcoming: "Don't do it."
Appearing Monday on "Ellen," the 73-year-old actor was quick to correct host Ellen DeGeneres when she asked whether he had tips for anyone pursuing the role of "the new Han Solo."
"Not a new Han Solo, a ... a ... young," Ford said, jokingly unable to complete the phrase. "It's worse than that, it's a young Han Solo."
After composing himself, the actor continued: "Don't do it. First, you know, it seems like everything's going swimmingly, and you put in 25, 30 years, and they just ... they just let you go. And they show you the door: 'We're done with you, thanks very much.'"
