The 10 Best Harrison Ford Roles That Aren't Han Solo Or Indiana Jones
10. John Book
"Witness" feels very familiar, with its basic premise and romantic subplot, but its pastoral setting and humanist focus elevate what could have been a standard thriller. Harrison Ford's self-assured performance as a police detective tactfully conceals a surprising amount of sensitivity; he received his only best actor Academy Award nomination for this film.
9. Jack Trainer
In "Working Girl," Ford plays Jack Trainer, a corporate figure dating co-worker Katharine Parker, only to fall for up-and-coming working professional Tess McGill (Melanie Griffith) as they work together on a merger. Ford's surprisingly adept sense of comic timing and delivery is on full display here, and his rapport with Griffith makes the movie shine.
8. Rusty Sabich
"Presumed Innocent" is a haunting legal thriller in which Ford stars as Rusty Sabich, an attorney falsely accused of murder. His acting in the film is beautifully understated by design, and the subtlety and restraint of his performance heighten the suspense and intrigue, leaving audiences guessing until the movie's shocking ending.
7. Henry Turner
In "Regarding Henry," Ford plays amoral lawyer Henry Turner, who suffers retrograde amnesia and is gradually reintroduced to the domestic life he long took for granted. Ford displays an amount of raw emotional vulnerability that he has rarely brought to the screen before or since; his performance ties everything together and makes the movie work.
6. James Marshall
In "Air Force One," Ford portrays the President of the United States, James Marshall, whose eponymous plane is hijacked by terrorists while flying home from Moscow, forcing him to fight back. No one-liner delivered by Ford outside of "Star Wars" or "Indiana Jones" has quite the lasting legacy as Marshall's firm declaration of, "Get off my plane."
