Harrison Ford is the second-most-famous carpenter who went on to bigger things. Actually, he’d turned to carpentry full-time after a disappointing run of playing bit parts for TV and movies, when a job building cabinets in George Lucas’s kitchen led the director to offer Ford a supporting role in the 1973 sleeper hit American Graffiti. Their collaboration continued with far bigger roles in far bigger films, Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark, which cemented Ford’s stardom and set the template for his onscreen persona as reluctant hero. He departs from type in the romantic drama The Age of Adaline, in theaters now. See an overview of Ford’s film career in our photo gallery.
