Harrison Ford Broke His Leg, Not His Ankle, on the 'Star Wars' Set

Remember last week when news broke that Harrison Ford broke his ankle on the set of the upcoming Star Wars in a Millennium Falcon-caused injure? Well, he actually broke his leg, which at least sounds a lot worse. 

The news comes from Brian Hernandez of Mashable, who reported that Ford's publicist said that the actor's "surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly."  This news follows a report from The Hollywood Reporter that Ford will miss "as many as eight weeks of filming" on the movie. THR added that the movie will continue to shoot in his absence and that its December 2015 release date still stands.
