: I think Mel Gibson would be perfect for playing Indy what do you guys think? For those that disagree please clarify why.
I like Gibson a lot. He's a damn fine actor. But, I just don't see him playing the part. He too is starting to get up there in years. But the biggest problem I have with him portraying Indy is exposure. He's been in so many movies; it would be extremely hard for me to watch him and think to myself, "Hey, that's Indiana Jones". Instead, I would be sitting there shoveling popcorn thinking, "Hey, there's Mad Max, Hamlet, Detective Riggs, Maverick..." Good movies suspend disbelief. I'd have a hard time believing Mel Gibson was Indiana Jones. It would have to be a completely unknown actor for me to do that. -MP
