Even at the age of 79, American actor Harrison Ford did not have enough. The “Indiana Jones” star has now accepted a role in a series.
Hollywood star Harrison Ford (Star Wars, Blade Runner, Indiana Jones) is accepting his first major role in a TV series at the age of 79. And for the streaming service, Apple TV + Ford will play the sitcom “Shrinking,” Variety and The Hollywood Reporter reported Monday. Apple TV + announced the project last October.
Jason Segel (42, “How I Met Your Mother”) simulates a therapist who suddenly tells his patients what he thinks and thus turns their lives on. Ford plays his mentor, a behavioral therapy pioneer who is forced to rebuild his life after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
Rarely seen in the series
Alongside Segel, Bill Lawrence, creator of the award-winning comedy series Ted Lasso, joined as producer of the ten-episode series. Ford has recently appeared on screens in films such as The Call of the Wild (2020), Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019), and Blade Runner 2049 (2017). He recently finished Indiana Jones 5.
The adventure sequel, starring Ford as archeology professor Henry Walton Jones, is set to hit theaters in June 2023. Early in his career, Ford had small television roles, such as the western series “The People of Shiloh Ranch” and “Gunsmoke”.
