While many fans assume an actor’s life is cushy, that’s certainly not the case for Harrison Ford on his latest gig.

The “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” hunk reportedly hurt himself while filming “Star Wars: Episode VII” last week and now he’ll be on the bench for eight weeks.

A rep from Disney confirmed, “[Mr. Ford] sustained an ankle injury,” though they haven’t released any information as to the extent of the damage.

Harrison is joined on the cast by fellow originals like Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, while JJ Abrams is manning the director’s chair. The previously announced December 2015 release date is believed to still be in effect despite Ford’s injury.
