Han Solo Should Have Been Killed Off Says Harrison Ford

HARRISON FORD, the 68-year-old Hollywood actor famed for playing the role of 'Han Solo' in the Star Wars movies, says that the character was not very interesting and should have been killed off.
In an interview with ABC News, Ford suggested that the Captain of the Millennium Falcon should have died in the last Star Wars movie, 'Return of the Jedi'. When asked about playing the legendary role, Ford said, "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". However, the 68-year-old said that director GEORGE LUCAS rejected the idea, adding, "George didn't think there was any future in dead Han toys".
Ford made the comments during an interview to promote his new movie 'Morning Glory', in which he plays a news anchor on a struggling morning television show. The film also stars RACHEL MCADAMS and JEFF GOLDBLUM, and is directed by ROGER MICHELL. The actor has a number of future projects lined up, including the 2011 adventure movie 'Cowboys and Aliens', and he this week expressed his desire to make another INDIANA JONES film.

Palpatine

Han ends up marrying Leia and they have three kids. One of their kids, Anikin Solo, dies with Chewbacca during the war with the Vong. Another one of their kids, Jacen, joins the Dark Side of the force (must have gotten that from Leia Organa's side of the family) after the Vong War. Jacen then takes control of the Galactic Alliance and Han joins the Rebel Faction which is opposing....Darth Caedus. Darth Caedus is Jacen (remember he is the grandson of Darth Vader). But dont worry, this is where the third child of Han and Leia comes into light...Jaina. Jaina kills Darth Caedus. Jaina stayed close to the Jedi Order and is hunting siths throughout the galaxy. Han had to stay around, just look at the storyline that came from his life after ROTJ.

Why do all these actors dismiss or ridicule the roles that basically started their careers? It is kind of looking a gift horse in the mouth.
