Harrison Ford and Benedict Cumberbatch Team-Up to Talk ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Yesterday, Harrison Ford revealed on The Graham Norton Show that he hasn't made up his mind yet about returning as Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII.

Today, we have a video from his appearance on the British talk show, where he pretended to be confused when asked about his involvement in the highly-anticipated sequel. When host Graham Norton asked if Han Solo and Princess Leia were an "old married couple running a bed and breakfast," the actor joked that is why he hasn't made up his mind yet.

Benedict Cumberbatch, who has also been rumored to be in contention for an unknown role, was on the program seated next to Harrison Ford, teasing that "it's safe to say" that Harrison Ford is locked in to return.

What does this all mean? Are both Harrison Ford and Benedict Cumberbatch in Star Wars: Episode VII? Will we ever get a straight answer one way or another? While we wait for any official confirmation on the cast of J.J. Abrams' sci-fi adventure, take a look at this video from The Graham Norton Show

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to theaters December 18th, 2015.

    I felt like they both seemed equally coy and are covering up the fact that they are both in it.

      this is one of the reasons why I like J.J he does this to mislead people.

        It's a J.J. Abrams movie, we're all being played just like every other movie he's done. Leonard Nimoy said he wouldn't be in Darkness, then pops up. We were told Khan wouldn't be the villain, it was some guy named John Harrison. He gets off on being elusive, mysterious & misleading to build buzz.

          That must without a doubt be the single greatest compliment C*mberbatch has ever recieved.

            I think that the fact that they were both hesitant to say anything about being in Star Wars 7, means that they both don't want to say anything because they are in fact going to be in it.
