Harrison Ford Not Keen for Another Actor to Play Indiana Jones

Harrison Ford does not believe in succession plans.

One of the 76-year-old actor’s most famous roles is undoubtedly that of Indiana Jones.

The Raiders of the Lost Ark star has played the archaeology professor since 1981, appearing in four films with a fifth on the way.

While the James Bond series has had several actors embody the MI6 agent throughout the years, Ford is not keen for Indie to follow suit.

With the upcoming Indiana Jones film (set for 2021) likely being Ford’s last, he has expressed belief that no one should take on the iconic role after him.

“Nobody is gonna be Indiana Jones,” the actor said on Today. “Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones. When I’m gone, he’s gone.”

We guess that’s that then.

Despite Ford’s feelings, director Steven Spielberg has said in the past, “This will be Harrison Ford’s last Indiana Jones movie, I am pretty sure, but it will certainly continue after that.”

We’ll have to wait and see…
