With how much Hollywood loves to cast hot young actors into roles formerly filled by veterans, it seems inevitable that we’ll get a new Indiana Jones. After all, Harrison Ford turned 80 earlier this week, and next Indiana Jones 5 It will very likely be the last time he wears that hat and whip. (Even if it wasn’t, composer John Williams says this movie might be his. hurray cinematic past.) Everyone stepping into Indy after Ford is going to have some big shoes to fill, but at least we can all take comfort in the fact that it won’t be Chris Pratt.
The idea of Pratt stepping into the role of Jones has been floated over the years, but the actor has vehemently rejected this aspect recently. On this week’s episode of happy sad confused On the podcast, Pratt revealed his intentions to never take that role in his life, thanks to Ford scaring him off. “One time I saw a quote from Harrison Ford, it was like, ‘When I die, Indiana Jones dies,'” Pratt recalls. “And I’m like, Will Harrison Ford’s ghost one day haunt me when he dies if I play…?”
The quote in question stems from 2019 during an interview on The Today Show. When Craig Melvin asked him today who he wanted to take over, Ford grabbed Melvin’s shoulder and bowed to say, “Nobody. Don’t you get it?” I Indiana Jones. when I went, he is He went. it’s easy.”
sounds Unbelievably Ominous, and honestly, I think I love the idea of an actor being haunted by another actor’s ghost. (Depending on who you are, being haunted by Harrison Ford’s ghost isn’t him worst something in the world.) Pratt takes it seriously and stays as far from Jones as possible, so you can’t say it wasn’t effective. I wonder if Ford has the same amount of protection above Video game version Indy as is the movie version.
