Harrison Ford, the 71-year-old actor who is reprising his role from the original Star Wars trilogy in J.J. Abrams’ new film, broke his ankle last week when a door from his famed hunk-o-junk spacecraft fell on his leg. The break was severe enough that it will keep him out of action for up to two months, according to reports.
