Harrison Ford, The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Harrison Ford's adventures adventures as Indiana Jones will continue, but it's over for him as Han Solo.

The actor stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday and was asked to weigh in on the upcoming Han Solo origin story, slated for release on May 25, 2018. First and foremost, the 72-year-old actor wanted to make it clear that producers are not looking for a "new" Han Solo, but rather a "young" Han Solo. Ellen DeGeneresthen asked Harrison if he had any advice for whomever is cast in the role, to which he dryly replied, "Don't do it."

According to Harrison, job security isn't what it used to be. "First, it seems like everything's going swimmingly. And then you spend 25, 30 years and they just let you go. They show you the door," the actor joked in reference to Han Solo being killed off in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. "'We're done with you. Thanks very much.'"

Of course, Harrison remains more in-demand than ever. "You could become the next James Bond," Ellen suggested. Harrison seemed surprised at first, but only for a moment. "OK. I can do that," he said. "Yeah."

"But," Ellen said, "you are also doing another Indiana Jones. Can you tell us anything?"

"No," Harrison said. "When they tell me, I can come back and tell you."

In the meantime, watch Harrison get shot in the face with a tequila blaster in the video above.
