Harrison Ford Joins 'Expendables 3'; Still Open to Returning for 'Indiana Jones 5'

At 71 years old, Harrison Ford is staying relevant as an actor - by working on a combination of more artistically-satisfying films (see: 42) and commercially-friendly titles (see: Anchorman: The Legend Continues). The fan-favorite actor has even used his longtime public image as a curmudgeon to his advantage, during his two Hall H appearances at the International Comic-Con (see: the Q&A segment of the Ender's Game panel in 2013).

Ford is all-but-confirmed to reprise one of his iconic roles in 2015 with Star Wars: Episode VII, where he is expected to return as the 70-something year old version of the (not scruffy) hotshot Han Solo. The actor has admitted that he's still open to picking up his fedora and whip to reprise his other iconic role, should Indiana Jones 5 ever come to fruition - before that happens, though, it appears as though Ford will participate in a different movie (as an age-appropriate action hero): The Expendables 3.

It's been almost exactly a year since we first heard that Ford was being targeted to appear in Expendables 3. Of course, it's possible that Sylvester Stallone has been pushing to get the actor to join the Expendables franchise cast for a much longer period of time than that; either way, it appears that Sly has finally won Ford over (or worn him down, whatever works):
