There have been so many posts since I started visiting here about a year and a half ago stating that Selleck would have been terrible as Indy and I've never figured out why some of you feel that way.

I think that if he'd have got the part he'd have been as goo in his own way as Harrison Ford.

My Pro's for Selleck -

He can carry off action sequences.
He can be dramatic and light on equal terms.
He could look like an adventurer.
He's a good actor who's been served by some shit scripts and terrible films.

However in two of his early films "High Road to China" and "Lassiter" he played two sides of the Indy persona well.

I think that he'd have been fine. This isn't against Harrison who played Indy superbly, but for Selleck who could have.

Now, Selleck bashers, what have you got against him?

Reasoned answers please - nothing like "he has a big 'tash"
