Yeah they can keep bringing him back in his role even if he's sitting in a wheelchair, nothing like 77 year old action heroes.

Trapped said...

Really he’s that arrogant that no one else could play his part..GTFOOH

Derp said...

You’ll never have another Harrison Ford ever again. Talk about a product of a time and place. A lifelong committed door smoker who fell into superstardom because he was doing carpentry for Lucas with a book he borrowed from the library. A man largely ignorant of the forces that buffeted him to superstardom. Is it little wonder his best role was in Blade Runner, a character who doesn’t even know if he’s human or not.

“It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage.” from Raiders of the Lost Ark

Derp said...

Dope smoker. Friggin Apple.

Lo Key says censorship is bad, mmmkay? said...

Lol derp, I was so confused for a moment...

longtimereader said...

River Phoenix was perfect as a replacement but...

Little Miss Sunshine said...

Apparently, "door smoker" is a real thing.

Sh!t, they don't have real men action actors like Ford or Willis or Keanu or Gibson or Eastwood anymore, now it's all twinks and gym rats.

Simon said...

Sorry, can’t stand him. Never got his appeal.

Do Tell said...

Nobody wants anyone else to play Indiana Jones. Come on.

It was a bit different when they did The Young Indiana Jones because that was taking place decades before his character went after the Ark. It would not have been logical to expect Ford to play himself as a kid.

It's time for the "it's not fair! everyone should get a shot at playing iconic legendary characters" mentality to end. Enough.

Thia said...

@Simon, I totally agree, but that said, I really don't think anyone could truly embody Indy or Hans Solo better than he does. I also hate remakes and reboots.

timebob said...

He's trying to protect his legacy. With all the rebooting going on I can see him not wanting to be associated with some shit show movies.

Brayson87 said...

@Simon, Just google his cheating and flying as a pilot, not sure which one is worse. Like how he cheated on his wife with a drunken 19 year old Carrie Fisher vs nearly flying into an airliner.

I just hope it is better than the last one.

IndieRaga said...

How can a man Married to ally mcbeal be so insecure!

DavidHowesCREBroker said...

Apparently, he disliked the Han Solo stand alone film so bad, he's against any attempt to reboot the Indy series.

Karma said...

But John Frusciante killed him with that lethal dose & Def American covered it up. Ooops....Shhhh.

Karma said...

Um...did u throw Keanuu in the "manly"action hero category? Its called make believe movies 4 a reason. When the 90s club kid craze happened in NY, lemme tell u honey-the twinks coming out his apartment the next day in their wobbly walk of shame, were cuter than him.

kiki71 said...

Of course they won't keep that promise. Long live HF but the dude has to die SOME time and probably just in time for a re-boot and for the old man playing Indie days to have faded.

@ Do tell well I am sure it would be a young reboot or re-imagining of the series. You think they are going to cast someone even OLDER than HF in the role of IJ?

Brayson87 said...

@Karma, I said real men action actors, you're the one that said "manly." Don't care what they f*ck as long as it's legal, and if the most interesting thing about you is what you fuck, then you must not be that interesting. ;)
Except if you're a necrophiliac, that's probably going to be the headline every time.
No I'm talking actors who can play somewhat average guys stuck in f*cked up situations, not professional athletes or pretty boys. They've got character and you're pulling for them as underdogs.

Brayson87 said...

But if you want to beat the Keanu drum like he's replaceable, then tell me this, who is going to be the next Keanu? I don't see any contenders.

AlleyKat said...

Wow! I want one...you Americans have the coolest stuff!

ZZZedMaster said...

I'm really fed up of seeing old white men shoving their ugliness down our throats while age shaming women for doing the same.

Aquagirl said...

+1@Brayson @ 11:57. There’s nobody that I can think of.

Bleu said...

He plays a character. It's like someone saying no one else can ever play Hamlet.

Rosie riveter said...


During the original Raiders of the Lost Ark story meetings, George Lucas proposed that Indy "could have known this little girl when she was just a kid. Had an affair with her when she was 11." After Steven Spielberg protested, Lucas decided that "15 is right on the edge... Once she's 16 or 17, it's not interesting anymore."


In the official Raiders of the Lost Ark novelization, Marion is 15 when Indy starts sleeping with her, and he ditches her a year or two later. In the movie, Marion claims that she was "a child" during the affair, and Indiana doesn't deny it. Given the background information, it's easy to read between the lines: Indiana Jones slept with an underage girl, and we're supposed to shrug it off like it's no big deal.

Rosie riveter said...

A little surprised this crowd is defending him like this

PhillyWilly said...

We really need a scorecard Rosie. It’s easier to just assume That everyone involved in entertainment industry is a friggin pervert

Flashy Vic said...

@Rosie.

In Lucas' American Grafitti they ditch the 11 year old younger sister they're meant to be minding by forcing her for the night on Harrison Ford's character who expresses disappointment because he wanted someone a bit older, but takes her anyway.

AwkwardTurtle said...

I wonder if he'll let Shia Labeouf be in the next Indiana Jones movie again. Maybe he made that rule since that 4th installment got so many bad reviews.

Waitwhat said...

Mark Wahlberg would make a hot IJ. But NOT Ryan Reynolds...

idiot slayer said...

Yes. But on this site, "tiny-handed" "men" drool in idolatry of misogynist man love.

GypseeWind said...

*blocking my ears* LALALALALA, "Keanu is straight keanu is straight keanu is straight "

IndigoBlue said...

I don't care who diddles who, as long as everyone is an adult and consenting. That stated, whoever the actor is that replaces HF...they have to get someone with a sense of humor. That's half the appeal. I can actually see Ryan Reynolds doing it (sorry!), as long as he doesn't make a cartoon of the character. As for Keanu...I can see him being fluid and don't care one bit. His sexiest point to date for me was the original "Speed". Other than that, I don't care one way or another if he IS gay, plays gay, pretends straight, dates both sides....it's a movie.

BRAD PITT said...

when you really look at what happened to Corey Haim , the only permanent A list globally known movie star/family man that adds up to the timeline is Harrison Ford

BRAD PITT said...

@ Rosie riveter
