INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM
OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL

HARRISON FORD returns to the role of Indiana Jones in his latest adventure after having embodied the iconic archaeologist adventurer in the legendary series that began with the blockbuster "Raiders of the Lost Ark” and continued through "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.”

In the Indiana Jones series and as cocky rebel starship pilot Han Solo in the original "Star Wars” trilogy, Ford came to embody the quintessential American hero for moviegoers around the world. His body of work encompasses over 40 feature films – 11 of which have exceeded $100 million at the box office – including such films as "The Fugitive,” "Air Force One” and "Patriot Games.”

An Oscar® and Golden Globe nominee for Best Actor for his performance in the acclaimed suspense thriller "Witness” (1985), Ford also earned Golden Globe nominations for his starring roles in "Sabrina” (1995), "The Fugitive” (1993), and "The Mosquito Coast” (1986). He was named Star of the Century by The National Association of Theatre Owners in 1994 and "Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine in 1998. He has won three People's Choice Awards and, in 2000, garnered the prestigious Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute. In 2002, the Golden Globes honored him with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Born in Chicago, Ford attended Ripon College in Wisconsin before moving to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. He began as a contract player with Columbia Pictures, making his film debut in the crime drama "Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round” (1966). After a small role in "Getting Straight” (1970), he resolved not to let his career choices be dictated by financial concerns, so he turned to carpentry while he waited for the right role.

In 1973, after a three-year hiatus from the screen, Ford was cast by George Lucas as drag racer Bob Falfa in the coming-of-age classic "American Graffiti.” The next year, he landed a prominent supporting part in Francis Ford Coppola's "The Conversation,” which was followed by an important role in Stanley Kramer's television production of "Judgment: The Court Martial of Lt. William Calley.”

Ford returned to features in 1977 when Lucas cast him again, this time as Han Solo, a renegade starship pilot who becomes a hero by default, in "Star Wars” – and the rest is history. As the film shattered box office records around the world, Ford's performance came to define a new brand of scrappy hero for generations to come. He went on to star in the World War II era love story "Hanover Street” (1978) and "The Frisco Kid” (1979), and had cameo roles in "Apocalypse Now” (1979) and "More American Graffiti” (1979) before Steven Spielberg cast him as intrepid adventurer Indiana Jones in "Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981). The movie became another of the highest-grossing films of all time.

Between the "Star Wars” sequels "The Empire Strikes Back” (1980) and "Return of the Jedi” (1983), and the Raiders sequels, Ford starred in a number of other memorable films. In "Blade Runner” (1982), he delivered a gritty performance as a cop in the nihilistic future of L.A. He earned critical acclaim and an Oscar® nomination for his role as a cop on the lam, hiding out in Amish country, in "Witness” (1985). Ford followed that with a daring portrayal of an eccentric idealistic inventor in "The Mosquito Coast” (1986). He went on to play a Hitchcockian protagonist in "Frantic” (1988) before showing his flair for romantic comedy in "Working Girl” (1988).

He played a lawyer accused of murder in "Presumed Innocent” (1990); an arrogant yuppie transformed by a mugger's bullet in ”Regarding Henry” (1991); the heroic ex-CIA agent Jack Ryan in "Patriot Games” (1992) and "Clear and Present Danger” (1994); a doctor wrongly convicted of murdering his wife in
