: An entertainment expert on Neil Cavuto's show today claimed Ford "killed" his career with Hollywood Homicide. Claimed Ford said he never read the script. Maybe the only work he can get now is Indy 4
I doubt that Hollywood Homocide killed Ford's career. Due to his age, though, he simply won't be getting as many of the action roles that we're used to seeing him in (Indiana Jones 4 hopefully notwithstanding).
I suppose that it's just harder for the current young generation to see him exactly the same way we did when we (and Ford) were younger. Just as Ford undoubtedly supplanted some older lead action star back in the 1970's and 1980's, some young gun will (or perhaps already has) supplanted Ford for the same position in the present. :(
But Harrison Ford will continue to get roles much like Sean Connery has - just expect Ford to get more "Jack Ryan/Richard Kimble" type of roles rather than "Indiana Jones/Han Solo" types of roles. :)
