So there have been a lot of rumors going around as to who would pick up the “Indiana Jones” mantel once Harrison Ford steps down. The top rumor of the day is Bradley Cooper. Personally, I always thought Josh Holloway (Lost, Intelligence) would have made a great “Indiana Jones.” Harrison Ford is a very hard act to follow, but I always felt that Holloway had just the right amount of charm and charisma to follow in his footsteps.
I realize that the studios want to make a few bucks on these older franchises, mostly because they are too scared financially to take a risk on newer ones, but there are certain properties that just shouldn’t be touch again (or at least for a very long time). “Indiana Jones” without Harrison Ford is one of these properties. But hey, we know they’re going to do it.
So as long as we’re going to discuss crazy rumors for the next couple of years, I’d like to throw my wild card out there. If you’re not going to get Josh Holloway for the role, then this would be my other favorite choice. Happy Wednesday!!!
Like I always say, the world needs more Pee-wee!
