Harrison Ford put his “Star Wars” set accident behind him by walking the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of “The Expendables 3″ on Monday just two months after breaking his leg.

The “Indiana Jones” star crushed his left limb on the set of “Stars Wars: Episode VII” in June in London. He underwent surgery and jetted back to his native U.S. to begin rehabilitation treatment.

Last month the veteran actor was pictured walking unaided for the first time since breaking his leg, and on Monday, he proved he is ready to get back to work by striding up the red carpet at the Los Angeles screening, where he was joined by co-stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Mel Gibson.

The production schedule for the seventh “Star Wars” installment was altered to allow Ford time to recover. The actor is expected to resume filming on the sci-fi movie in the coming weeks and the shoot is scheduled to wrap in the autumn.
