Harrison Ford Movies: "Stars Wars: Episode IV A New Hope"; "Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back"; "Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi" Role: Han Solo Report: Ford had been kicking around Hollywood for over a decade -- he starred in Lucas' 1973 hit "American Graffiti" -- when he was cast as the swaggering rogue Han Solo, commander of the Millennium Falcon. Suddenly, this part-time carpenter became not only an overnight sensation, but a sex symbol to boot. Though his film career has taken a hit this decade -- the last "Indiana Jones" adventure was not highly thought of -- Ford is one of cinema's biggest box office stars. He'll have another go at his iconic character in "Indiana Jones V," and recently played another grizzled hero in "Cowboys & Aliens." Though mainly cast as a two-fisted action hero, he did show his tender side, receiving a best actor Oscar nomination in the process, in the 1985 hit "Witness."
