London: Hollywood director Jon Favreau has praised his "Cowboys & Aliens" star Harrison Ford as the "quintessential cowboy" and said he was delighted to have him in the film.
Favreau has said he was delighted to sign the 63-year-old for his forthcoming movie alongside "James Bond" star Daniel Craig because he thinks they bring a "different aspect of cool" to the project, reports imdb.com.
"Having Harrison as part of this, it`s like hiring John Wayne. He is the quintessential cowboy. And then Daniel bringing all that credibility from his take on 007 and the work he`s done before, like `Layer Cake`," said Favreau.
"They both bring a different aspect of the cool, calm, collected leading man and playing off that dynamic between them has been a lot of fun," he added.
