Harrison Ford tosses Indiana Jones hat to Shia LaBeoufMay 16th, 2009 - 5:01 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 16 (ANI): American actor Harrison Ford has handed his sweaty hat from ‘Indiana Jones and The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull’ to actor Shia LaBeouf, fuelling rumours that the latter will be playing the lead in any next films in the famous series.
But even though LaBeouf got the hat, Ford, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, the moviemakers behind the Indiana Jones franchise have dismissed the reports.
“It has his sweat stains from the whole movie in it. We were way out somewhere at an airplane hangar on the last day of shooting, and he took the hat off his head, signed it and handed it to me,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Playboy magazine.
“When I looked at the hat I saw he had written something with a silver Sharpie (pen). It said, ‘It’s all yours now, kid - Harrison’,” he said.
LaBeouf is also quick to point out that he won’t be taking over from Ford any time soon.
“It’s easy to perceive that as his handing the reins over to me on a franchise or whatever… that’s not it,” he said.
“What I read it as is, ‘Keep your s**t on’. It was his way of saying ‘Life is going to get crazy now, so strap on tight, kid’,” he added. (ANI)
