Harrison Ford is one of the most iconic actors in all of Hollywood. With a career spanning decades and several legendary characters to his name, including Han Solo from the Star Wars movies, Indiana Jones from the film series of the same name, and Rick Deckard from Blade Runner, Ford has influenced a generation of actors.

Most performers would be lucky to get a role as good as any one of the above characters to their names, but Ford isn't like most actors. Ever since he broke out into the mainstream with George Lucas' 1973 film American Graffiti, he's been a household name, and it's hard to imagine the current pop culture landscape without him.

However, if the hands of fate had turned ever so slightly, the face of Hollywood may have looked much different. Believe it or not, there was a time when Ford might have turned his back on Hollywood for good, and it all has to do with his time spent with The Doors and Jim Morrison.
