Harrison Ford finds `Extraordinary Measures` role "compelling"

London: Actor-producer Harrison Ford finds his role in upcoming movie `Extraordinary Measures`, "compelling" which is different to the roles that he has already played.

"I`m not Indiana Jones, I`m an actor. I just work and it`s important for my career to play different kinds of characters. I thought `Extraordinary Measures` was a compelling story of a father`s devotion and courage in forging a path through the deep woods to attend to the terrible dilemma that his kids are in," he said.

The Academy Award-nominated actor, who recently married `Ally McBeal` star Calista Flockhart, believes that the movie comprises of issues which are significant for US during the present time.

"It deals with problems of healthcare and the difficulty of getting a drug through the pharmaceutical industry and approved by the federal government in America," Ford explained.

The actor, who is also producing the film said that he can be pretty scary at the sets.

"As a producer I don`t see myself as the boss, I`m a collaborator. Am I scary? I hope so, if necessary. Very little
makes me angry. I lose my temper very rarely," he said.

The actor is currently engaged in his new movie `Cowboys and Aliens` in New Mexico.
