To be fair, the book is only 26-years old, which is only like a third of Harrison Ford’s age.

Ford has been recruited by the producers of Ender’s Game to play Hyram Graff, a colonel who tries to manipulate the boy-genius Ender into becoming a weapon against an alien threat.

Aliens again, Harrison? Didn’t we learn anything over the summer?

With this casting news, it appears that the actors of Ender’s Game are falling into two very distinct camps. Very young and very old. Along with Ford, Ben Kingsley has been cast as Ender’s (played by Asa Butterfield) mentor, and True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld will play Ender’s classmate Petra.

While the Ford news is probably only interesting to fans of the novel, the fact that he will have to do press for this film, probably with kids, probably while stoned, is pretty great.
