Harrison Ford praises Ke Huy Quan’s performance in Everything Everywhere All At Once after previously working with him on the Indiana Jones franchise.

After starring alongside him Indiana Jones and the Temple of DoomHarrison Ford praised Ke Huy Quan’s performance in Everything Everywhere At Once. Directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as Daniels, the multiverse-hopping adventure film was released earlier this year to rave reviews from audiences and critics. Everything Everywhere At Once stars Michelle Yeoh as laundromat owner Evelyn with Quan co-starring as Waymond, her husband. The two embark on a multiversal quest to save their universe while also discovering deeper truths about themselves and their family.


Earlier this year, in a touching Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom reunion photo, Ford and Quan, who performed Short Round, met backstage at D23, prompting an outpouring of love for the duo on social media. Now, in a recent interview with UproxxFord reflected on his partnership with Quan and shared some touching praise for the actor’s performance in Everything Everywhere At Once. See Ford’s full comments below:

Everything Everywhere At Once marks Quan’s return to the acting world after spending several years behind the camera and the actor is set to appear in season 2 of Loki and several other projects. Unfortunately, no word on whether there are any plans for him to return to Indiana Jones franchise as Short Round. Ford is set to hang up his hat and bullwhip next year Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destinywhich will see the return of John Rhys-Davies as Sallah, but no other original franchise stars are confirmed to return.

While Ford may step down from the role in James Mangold’s upcoming fifth installment, the franchise is expected to continue in the form of a Disney+ show. The untitled show is currently in very early stages of development and, with no writer currently attached, no plot details have been released just yet. It’s certainly possible, however, that the show could see Quan return as Short Round in some form. Much of the same goes back to supporting character Riley Poole (Justin Bartha). National Treasure: Edge of History to serve as a mentor to a younger adventurer, Quan’s Short Round could serve to connect the show to the franchise’s roots. Alternatively, of course, many fans probably wouldn’t mind if the show completely revolved around Short Round, putting him in a leading role for the very first time.

It remains to be seen if the character of Short Round will return, but Quan certainly dazzled audiences with his comeback in Everything Everywhere At Once. With the film garnering almost universal acclaim, Quan is likely to become an in-demand screen presence, with his Loki character who could potentially become a regular addition to the MCU. Whatever’s next for Quan, Ford is clearly happy to have the actor back and the two remain on good terms after first meeting more than 35 years ago.
