: One report I read about a possible Indy IV script detailed that the opening sequence would show the young Indiana with Abner Ravenwood, so my question to my fellow Indyfans is, Who would play the role? It's suggested in Raiders that he was like a father to Indy so obviously someone who has had such a key role in a life as remarkable as Indy's is going to have to be a rather special actor, as Sean Connery was playing his father. The only actors I can think of who carry the same "on-screen weight" as Sean are Clint Eastwood, Anthony Hopkins and Charlton Heston so let me know your ideas.
Definitely Anthony Hopkins! heston would be great also - it depends on whether Abner is mor eof an adventurer, or whether he is more of an archeologist. In the case of adventurer
