Top Ten Actors Who Could Be the Next Indiana JonesLucasfilm announced, in May, 2015, that a fifth Indiana Jones movie is on the horizon (although as of June, 2015 we're not exactly sure how far away that horizon is). And with that, a lot of people are expecting the titular role to be recast for a reboot. But who do we think deserves a shot at the iconic role? This list compiles the best candidates.
He's the number one choice as far as everyone is concerned and its impossible not to see why. He got Spielberg's attention (result: Jurassic World) and after seeing that film, its even easier to imagine the newly-crowned A-list actor in the role.
He's on the top of everyone's list. He is is Indy.
It's partly that he has the looks but also he really reminds me of Ford in the way he's a total playboy kind of idiot, yet he gets the job done
I don't know why, but Tom Hardy just seems to fit like hand in glove for the role. His age is just right, he has a bad ass, sort of toned down, mysterious personality, he just seems to fit the bill of a serious, seasoned adventurer who has seen his share of things, with something dark about his personality yet underlying good.
Remember the bad ass stunts in the original movies. A new Indiana needs to be tough, rugged and a true physical actor that can carry the anti hero role. He can also bring the charm and humor, but all the other suggestion are soft, goofy pretty boys that don't have the chops. Hardy is the clear choice if possible.
Hardy is one of the greatest actors ever to Grace the screen. He's amazing at cracking the jokes with his dry British with and he's a bit of a James Bond guy at times. Definitely fits.
I firmly believe he's the one and only who should inherit that role. I wouldn't say I'm a fan of him, but I've been and will be an Indy fan for my whole life. Unlike with all the others, I can't think of a reason for which he wouldn't be the perfect choice. Furthermore, above other requirements to think of, there's one I always wanted for the next possible Indy, a quality I believe Harrison Ford had, which I'd say is the appropiate balance between looking VERY handsome and having the right mind for it, in spite of it, and together with it. I mean, here's an actor who not only has the right sort of good-looks for the role, and I'd say in a pleasant "standard" or "neutral" sort of way, but also usually shows elegant sparks of intelligence that could revive the role in the direction I wish for, which is that of keeping the character quite interesting because of an educated background. One thing I love and find most necessary about Indy is his professor side, which brings that idealistic and misterious conjunction of intellectual knowledge behind a practical approach to things. It's what makes the character really fascinating to me. Fassbender would be perfect. Oh, and he also speaks German (useful, don't you think? ).
Since all the hype and buzz is surrounding Chris Pratt at the moment, you're probably not going to hear many people mention Aaron Eckhart and Indiana Jones in the same sentence (except for me, of course). The actor's not too busy these days so scheduling wouldn't be a problem, and he's definitely got what it takes to embrace the challenge of playing a character of this size, I think. Maybe I'll
You not only have to be handsome, you have to be cute, you have to be adorable, you have to be funny without trying, you have to be irresistible and any believable slightly nerdy professor, and you still have to be tough and able to do some of the stunts to get good shots. Aaron can totally pull all that off.
The best choice. He's cute, handsome, adorable, and a great actor who can do the action. You also want someone willing to stay with the role for the long haul. I don't think any of the other actors would be willing to stay... and some are just too over exposed. Aaron would be more than a perfect Indiana Jones.
He was considered to be the most likely choice a number of years ago. With Chris Pratt in the picture, his chances aren't looking quite as good, although he could still surprise us and win the role.
He's a suitable Deadpool, which blends action and comedy well enough together, so why couldn't he be a fitting Indiana Jones? If next year's 'Deadpool' turns into a smash hit (which I figure it will) maybe his name will start spreading across other people's lists.
His rough-around-the-edges look seems pretty fitting for the role, doesn't it? I think so. He's tough as well as funny and those two things are essential for playing Jones.
Jeremy Renner would be a great Indiana Jones!
Why not? They're considering him to be a viable candidate to play a potential future 007. Why not Indiana Jones? Once you move beyond the skin colour debate you have a terrific actor for the role. I'm definitely ok with this idea.
He's a little on the older side to be taking over the role, I think, but that doesn't mean that I can't imagine him playing Indy. He'd need to mask his accent, of course, to pull it off. Probably gain a few pounds, also.
There's no harm in saying that Harrison Ford could still play the character. He's showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon and if he's still able to wow us playing Han Solo then of course he can still play Indy!
There is only one hero.
The one and only
He can play a grizzled action hero, just watch "Kong: Skull Island." Also, he can wear a darn good cowboy hat, just watch "I Saw the Light."
I photoshopped him into an Indiana Jones picture, it is absolutely perfect!
I added Robert due to an unconfirmed report released a few years back suggesting that he was being scouted for the role. I'm not sure why Lucasfilm wanted him but if they saw something in him then maybe there's something that I am missing.
Certainly more worthy than Chris Pratt!
I guess Christian Bale could pull of the role. Not sure he really has the look for it, but getting the characterization right is the main thing and I'm almost certain he'd be able to do it.
What if they made an Indiana Jones spoof. This would be the number one role
Indy should be a little nerdy, a little understated sexy, like John.
Yea, of mutt become the new Indy...
Like that's gonna happen...
He already played son of Indy.
Sunshine on Leith crooner MacKay is the British version of Chris Pratt.
If I could be so bold, watching Nathan's portrayal of Captain Reynolds in Firefly and especially Serenity, all the qualities of a perfect Indiana Jones are expressed in perfect fashion. Intensity, humor, and physicality are true to form. I truly hope he could be considered.
