Harrison Ford has revealed which two movie roles he believes are his most underrated.

The actor, whose acting career spans several decades, told The Hollywood Reporter that 42 and K-9: The Widowmaker are two films that feature his most underappreciated roles to date.

"I’m proud of 42. I’m proud of K-19: The Widowmakerwhere I played a Russian submarine captain. But I think they’re good movies – that’s why I’m proud of them. Each film has its own destiny, and I don’t go back and parse the experience," Ford said.

Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, the historical drama K-19 follows Captain Alexi Vostrikov (Ford) who, at the height of the Cold War, is ordered to take over command of the nuclear missile submarine K-19. The cast also includes Liam Neeson and Peter Sarsgaard. Released in 2002, the film was released to mixed reviews and grossed only $50 million against a $90 million budget.

Ford played American baseball Hall-of-Famer Branch Rickey in 42, a biopic from Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River, A Knight’s Tale), that starred the late Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson. The film was a modest box office success and earned praise from critics, but failed to generate any awards season buzz.

The actor is currently starring as a psychiatrist to Jason Segel in Apple TV Plus's Shrinking, no-nonsense patriarch Jacob Dutton in Yellowstone prequel 1923, and will play Indiana Jones one last time in The Dial of Destiny which is due out this summer.
