Harrison Ford has revealed he would reprise his role as Indiana Jones in "a New York minute".

The Ender's Game star told talk show host Graham Norton that he would play the whip-cracking action hero again in a fifth instalment of the franchise.

"I don't think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart," the 71-year-old said on The Graham Norton Show.

"I'm old enough that we don't need [Sean] Connery any more - I'm old enough to play my own father!"

Harrison, who returned to the character in 2008 for Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull alongside Shia LaBeouf, admitted that he isn't too excited about the prospect of doing the stunts.

"I used to enjoy physical acting, it was fun. I was more fond of it then than I am now and people don't ask me to do it that much any more," he said.

Harrison plays Colonel Graff in the sci-fi adventure Ender's Game, which also stars Asa Butterfield, Sir Ben Kingsley and Hailee Steinfeld.

He said: "I am very proud of the movie. It has some great actors in it and a highly trained, professional actor somehow has got in the body of a 16-year-old.

"He's got an incredible work ethic and working with him is such a pleasure," he added.

The Graham Norton Show will air on BBC One on October 11 at 10.35pm.
