Is Harrison Ford Fit Enough to Play Indy One More Time?
I love Indiana Jones, but I am wary of Harrison Ford reviving the role. He recently told comingsoon.com:
"I can't tell you anything about 'Indiana Jones,' but I think you've just seen a film in which I perform physically to an extent [that will be] sufficient for 'Indiana Jones.'"
Now, I haven't seen Firewall, the movie he's talking about, but I have seen the trailers and when I see them my mind says two things: Where has Ford been? and Damn, he looks old!
I for one am ready for an Indy 4, but maybe, like Bond, it is time for a new hero to take the reigns. Why is it that American franchises have such a hard time switching actors for starring roles? We have accepted it for years when it comes to Bond. We get excited when we hear there is a new one, but American heros can't be replaced like that. I say replace Ford and hit us with a young Indy movie. With Spilberg and Lucas attached it would do wonderful and breath new life into a great story.
