Hmmm, who would I caste..?

Since I haven't been able to crawl into my icon and disappear for a bit, I'll daydream about movies. "Indiana Jones" in particular.

I think they're making a new one, right? Yes? No?
I think that Harrison Ford is the quintessential Indie. No one could ever take his place. No one.
He can hand the torch off to a younger archaeologist. Perhaps a student he's mentoring or one that wants to follow in his footsteps.
(that way the movie mogels can continue the series, right?)
And I was thinking of what actor could play this protege.

Is Orlando Bloom too delicate?
Is Tom Smallville-guy to pretty?
Is Collin Farrell too short/too old?
Is Hayden Darth Vader too bad an actor?
Is it too risky to caste it with a complete unknown?
Keanu Reeves? Johnny Depp? Brad Pitt? Joaquin Phoenix?
Benjamin McKenzie(The O.C.)?

Who, who, who could play Indie's 'sidekick'-come-replacement?

B McK! aaahahahhahah, that's fabulous!!

Although, I have to put in a vote for the surreal and say that it should be Young Indy himself, Sean Patrick Flanery. He could play the part really well, and he's a good actor and could use more work.

Joaquin would be weird, since his dead brother played baby!Indy and all. *shudder*

Dude. That would be so creepy.

How about Michael Vartan, from "Alias?" I've never seen him on the show, but I've seen him in other things and I think he can do the quiet charisma thing pretty well. Though if it's a wish list kind of a thing, I'd like to request Hugh Jackman or Viggo Mortensen. Rawr.

Hmmmm. I really buy into the Viggo idea. He could play more a 'colleague-taking-over-for-Indiana' character. Good one!

D'Oh!!! I didn't even think of Sean P.F. I feel bad. Because YES!! Oh yes, he was a great 'Young Indie'!!!

and ::shudder:: is right, the Phoenix sibling thing didn't even occur to me! I suck at casting movies apparently! :o)

Would you believe I have never see Indiana Jones? But I vote for Orli just because he's so pretty. ::sigh::

Dude, you should rent them one day.
But apart from that, I concur! Orli is p.r.e.t.t.y!!

Well, if Colin Farrell is too old, then Keanu and Johnny are both waay too old. They're both 40, I think, or pushing it really hard. Not that I don't still love them--I try hard not to be age-ist. *grin* Anyway, Colin's only, like, 28? Born in '76, according to the IMDb...

Man, that's a hard one. Does the side-kick have to have Indy's dry wit? Because that plus the action thing is what makes it hard.

I'm trying hard to make Oded Fehr work here, as the local (MidEastern) expert Indy befriends, etc., etc., but I think he may be too old, too, to be the up and coming youngster...

Oh, Oded Fehr...I could see that. He needs to be in more stuff, at any rate.
Jan. 15th, 2004 01:58 pm (UTC)
Oh goodness!
::fans self::
Oded Fehr in the John Rhys-Davies friend roll.
I think I have to sit down.
He's got my vote.

My vote for SPF as well, cause, well, he's done it already.

Although Joaquin, MMMMMMMMMMMM. Shoulders, man. Those shoulders.
