Harrison Ford is now the American box office king.

Bolstered by the insane ticket sales of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the 73-year-old star has grossed more at the box office in the U.S. than any other actor. His leading number currently sits at $4.71 billion, according to Box Office Mojo.

Ford took the crown from another member of the Star Wars franchise: Samuel L. Jackson, who starred in all three prequels. Jackson was also in a handful of Marvel movies, including The Avengers. He’s at $4.63 billion.
