Washington (ANI): Actor Harrison Ford has brushed aside rumours that his Indiana Jones co-star Shia LaBeouf will take over his role as the action hero in the film's new instalment. The rumours said to have started when the 'Star Wars' actor was seen passing his signature archaeologist hat to LaBeouf, who plays his son in the 2008's 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'.
LaBeouf starred alongside the 66-year-old actor as the whip-cracker's young friend Mutt Williams. Ford, however, has insisted that the gesture was not a symbolic one and that there was an obvious difference between a physical and metaphorical action.
"No, that's never been (the idea)... I think it just doesn't work that way," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Moviefone. "And there's definitely a distinction between passing the fedora and someone picking it up," the actor added.
