Ford, Cumberbatch remain mum on 'Star Wars' involvement
It seems like not a day goes by without another rumor about J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII."
Rumors flew recently that Harrison Ford had joined original stars Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill in reprising his role of Han Solo for the new film.
Another active rumor revealed that British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who worked with Abrams on "Star Trek Into Darkness," was also on-board.
Both Ford and Cumberbatch took to BBC's "The Graham Norton Show" recently to...say absolutely nothing one way or the other. In fact, both actors seem to go out of their way to stutter and make guttural sounds to deny any involvement. (Or perhaps to keep their involvement a secret?)
Ford looks visibly uncomfortable during the whole exchange and deflects the question by complimenting Cumberbatch for his work on BBC's "Sherlock."
Fellow guest, British comedian Jack Whitehall, steps in and jokes about his own role in the upcoming "Star Wars" movie, which, in turn, leads to Ford making quite a quip regarding his hesitation to step back into Solo's black boots and pistol holster.
