Harrison Ford revealed earlier this week that he'd be on board for the long-gestating sequel to "Blade Runner" if it ever gets off the ground. But he's less sure of reprising his role in the new "Star Wars" trilogy.

In an interview on the UK's "Graham Norton Show," Ford hinted that the ball's in his court when it comes to a cameo in "Star Wars: Episode VII," telling the talk show host that he had "not quite made the choice" about whether or not to appear as Han Solo in the new trilogy. Rumors have been swirling since the new trilogy was first announced that Ford and his co-stars Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher would return to the franchise.
While past interviews with the original cast members hinted that the trio's involvement was all but a done deal, Ford's latest comments make that seem like less of a certainty now. Still, the very fact that the choice to appear seems to be Ford's alone indicates that Fisher and Hamill have also been approached in a similar manner, and will perhaps decide to cameo anyway, regardless of where Ford ultimately lands on the issue.
Despite Ford's uncertainty over Solo, he told Norton that he had no such quibbles over donning a fedora and whip to play Indiana Jones again.
"I would do it in a New York minute, yes," Ford said. "I don't think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart."
Maybe J.J. Abrams can just write an "Episode VII" cameo for Jones instead?
