'Cowboys and Aliens' Almost Moseyed Away from Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford admitted to "Extra's" Terri Seymour he almost missed out on the much-anticipated film by Jon Favreau, "Cowboys and Aliens." "I ready thirty pages and threw it across the room and said, 'What the hell is this? There's nothing in this for me!'"



After speaking with his agent and Favreau, the seasoned actor changed his mind and saw an opportunity to try something new before fully committing himself as the grumpy old Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde, starring alongside Daniel Craig.

When Seymour asked Ford about Daniel inviting his co-stars to his home and cooking for them, Ford corrected, "He catered, he didn't cook," and added, "Maybe he cooked for Olivia [Wilde]... he didn't cook for me!"

Terri also questioned Harrison, who turned 69 on Wednesday, about starring in another "Indiana Jones" movie, to which he replied, "I don't know if it will happen. I don't know when it will happen. It's in the hands of others at the moment."

Seymour pressed on, asking, "Would you like it to happen?" The star revealed, "I would like us to make another 'Indiana Jones' movie. I would like us to make a really good 'Indiana Jones' movie and I would be happy to be involved."

While the decision for another "Indiana" adventure hangs in limbo, "Cowboys and Aliens" shoots into theaters July 29.
