That's a good face. Any other actor would have kept a face like that as safe as possible, but not Harrison. Within a few years of leaving college, Ford crashed his Volvo into a telephone pole while fumbling with the seatbelt, which left him with that chin scar that you can see from space. A few years later, he was filming an episode of the TV Western Gunsmoke and fell on his gun. That little oopsy cost him his front teeth. His nose has been broken "three or four times," which is probably why his nose looks like it's trying to make a run for it every now and then.

What's going on with his face? Who nose.
By the time George Lucas cast Harrison in a small part in American Graffiti, Ford was pushing 30 and done giving a flip about his prospects in Hollywood. So he refused to cut his longish hair for a part in a movie that took place in the '50s. Between constant facial run-ins with solid surfaces and his determined refusal to care what anyone else thought about him, Harrison Ford accidentally created the perfect Han Solo. A stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder, in other words.
The fact that we ended up with Harrison Ford, Man Who Doesn't Care What You Think of Him is the good news. The bad news is coming.
