Harrison Ford wants to share a warning with any aspiring Han Solos.

Ford appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Tuesday, and joked with the talk show host about being replaced with actors auditioning to be the next Han Solo for the upcoming "Star Wars" films, which are set to be released in 2017 and 2019.

"They are now auditioning a new Han Solo, right," DeGeneres asked, referencing the upcoming films.

"No," Ford said laughing. "Not a new Han Solo. ... It’s worse than that. It’s a young Han Solo.”

DeGeneres noted that there are "a lot of people" auditioning for the iconic role, and asked the 73-year-old actor what advice he would give these young actors.

"Don't do it," Ford deadpans. “First it seems like everything is going swimmingly and you put in 25-30 years and then they just let you go: ‘We’re done with you, thanks very much.'"

Ford remained tight-lipped when DeGeneres pressed for details about the upcoming "Indiana Jones" movie, but the actor insisted it was only because he didn't know any details himself.

"When they tell me, I can come back and tell you," Ford said. "I don't know yet."
