The road to superstardom took a lot of turns for Harrison Ford — from his uncredited first role as a bellhop in “Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round” (1966) to small roles in two classics “American Graffiti (1973) and “The Conversation” (1974) before his breakout role as Han Solo in the original “Star Wars” (1977).
The spotlight has found him again in the Paramount+ series “1923” opposite Helen Mirren and AppleTV’s “Shrinking” with Jason Segel. In June he’ll return to the silver screen in another one of his more enduring roles in “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.”
While he’s made some big films over the years, he’s also had his share of misses. We look at his best and worst — starting with the worst — through the eyes of critics as scored by Metacritic.com, which aggregates reviews from top critics and applies a weighted average to generate a score ranging from 0 to 100.
(Did you know that the role of Indiana Jones almost went to another actor? It's just one of many famous roles that almost went to someone else.)
