Harrison Ford is one of the most beloved action stars of all time; his wry, witty and brave portrayals of Han Solo and Indiana Jones rank amongst the most iconic and popular film characters of all time. So Ryan Reynolds is certainly setting the bar high when he says he’s hoping to make like Han and Indy in his new film.
Reynolds, who stars as the titular “Green Lantern,” this summer, spoke to the Los Angeles Times about, among other things, setting the tone for the personality of his sudden hero. He had to construct a careful balance between goofy and fearless, he said.
“The character is somewhere in the middle,” he told the paper. “He’s a classic male. Han Solo, who was witty but not really funny, was one of the touchstones.”
