Crystal Skulls is an abomination of a movie. I was excited to see Harrison Ford back as Indy, but it was a terrible, terrible movie and never should have been made.

I can't think of anyone specifically, I would like to see someone new. I don't think I want them to look like exactly like Harrison Ford, but I suspect the studios will think they have to.

So long as they're a good actor who can portray the personality that's been developed it doesn't matter to me who it is.

Though I admit that it would be interesting to see Sean Patrick Flanery reprise the role, but he's almost 50 himself and at this point too old.

JGL and Taylor Kitsch aren't rugged enough to play the character.

Crystal Skull is the "Phantom Menace" of the Indiana Jones series. I love Indiana Jones. I love Harrison Ford. I hate Crystal Skulls and wish it was never made.

Actually Josh Holloway sounds better than Bradley Cooper in the role. Hes Gritty and might work. Problem here is Indy was written specifically for Harrison Ford. Hence why as other have said INDY is Ford.

No, it was written for Selleck but he was under another contract he couldn't get out of so Lucas reluctantly cast Ford after Spielberg suggested him.

Then why was Harrison Ford given the role only after Tom Selleck rejected it to work on Magnum PI?

In fact, Speilberg suggested Ford but Lucas initially rejected it. Ford was cast less than 3 weeks before filming began. The part was hardly 'written for Ford', was it?

Actually, it wasn't written for anybody in particular but Selleck WAS the first choice.

Exactly. I Love the guy but seriously, a guy in his 70's doing an Action/Adventure movie that this type of role requires? No thank you.

Yup, plus he'll be 72 in July. Sure he's still in very good/decent shape for his age, but it's prob time to pass the torch.

(see above) Almost - he'll be 72 in July.

Very good idea. He's only 44 now so he could easily do a new trilogy if the first one is successful enough. But, Bradley Cooper (39 yrs old) "is" more of a Big Name right now, so I could why he's at the top of the list, IF the story is correct.

As for a young actor suggestion, how about Parker Young? I like to watch that show "Enlisted" and he plays a doofus on it, but he might be able to pull it off. Has that generic good looking guy with dark hair but not a pretty boy like Ashton or Leo look.

Not this one... please... not this one.

Just leave this one be. Why can't they jus create a new character in the same style? Seriously, this one makes absolute zero sense to me. Just get the Uncharted film franchise happening already and leave it at that. It's essentially a modern Indiana Jones anyways.

That's correct, Indiana Jones was written with Tom Selleck in mind.

That being said, I am sure at the time, no one thought anyone could replace Sean Connery as James Bond. Sure, many people still think Connery was the best, but other actors have been very successful and added their own characterization to the role including Daniel Craig who has been an excellent James Bond.

We all love Harrison Ford, but it is time to move on.

Just for the simple fact that Ford & Karen Allen were both in it makes it better that Phantom Menace was by default.

I think a lot of the backlash for Crystal Skull really is just due to the overuse of CGI (which really was only bad in two places) and the hatred a lot of people have for Shia LeBeouf (even though I don't love him as actor, really was harmless in this). I wasn't thrilled with the storyline, but honestly seeing Indy back again and hearing that score was enough for me to overlook some of the sillier moments of the film.

I don't need a big name for Indiana Jones. I need someone who is a good actor who looks the part and has the right sense of humor. Josh Holloway could certainly pull it off. And as you said, the story is key.

Lol - I Too do not need a big name for the character. But, you know how Hollyweird can be

Holloway can easily pull off the physicality the role requires, plus the humor. He showed these attributes on LOST & is showing it again on INTELLIGENCE.

It was great seeing Harrison Ford in the fedora again, but once you get over that, and the music, and the nostalgia, you are left with a very bad film. The story is beyond bad. The action sequences (especially those involving Indy) are boring and unmemorable. I don't personally dislike Shia LeBeouf, but the thought of giving Indy a son was stupid (reminds me of giving Superman a son in Superman Returns). Shia's character is so universally disliked, there was no way to "father/son" dynamic was going to be fun the way it was with Connery & Ford.

The day Disney bought Lucasfilm, the first thing I got excited about was not the acquisition of Star Wars, but the acquisition of Indiana Jones. This property has not been treated properly since Last Crusade. I have no faith in Lucas anymore (especially after the Star Wars prequels and Crystal Skulls). I believe Spielberg could still direct a good Indy film as long as Lucas isn't involved in the story. The fact Disney has the property now means we could actually get some new people involved because George Lucas is washed up. As for Harrison Ford, he will always be one of my favorite actors of all time, but it is time for a new take on Indiana Jones with a new actor. For those of you who don't want to see anyone in the role, you will always have the first three original movies (and Crystal Skulls too if you are an apologist!)
