: : I like Tom Selleck but I don't think I could enjoy watching him as Indiana Jones. Maybe this is because we have only seen Harrison Ford as Indy and no other actors playing him
: You are SO, SO, SO misguided, you, you, you dirt poor, innocuous fool!
: Shape up or ship out!
IS THIS WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO WHEN PEOPLE BECOME SO IMPATIENT. THEY FORGET WHO INDIANA JONES IS AND LOOSE HOPE IN FORD. LEAP OF FAITH AS I RECALL IN THE MOVIE. "YOU MUST BELEIVE BOY, YOU MUST BELEIVE!" ISNT THAT HOW IT WENT. I'M SORRY BUT INDY IS NOT A FRANCHISE WHERE YOU CAN TAKE FOR GRANTED THAT INDIANA JONES WILL ALWAYS BE. WHAT MAKES INDIANA JONES AS POPULAR AS IT IS TODAY WAS NOT JUST THE WHIP, THE FEDORA, AND THE JACKET, BUT THE MAN WHO WORE THE WHIP AND DONED THE FEDORA AND JACKET AS WELL AS KICKED ASS IN IT! I KNOW ITS FUN TO PONDER THE POSABILITIES OF A DIFFERENT ACTOR TO PLAY INDY BUT WHAT DO YOU THINK FORD WOULD SAY KNOWING THE LOVE HE HAS FOR THIS CHARACHTER HE PLAYS IF HE CAME TO THIS FORUM AND SAW WHAT IS BEING WRITTEN ABOUT HIM.! WHAT I RESPECT IS THE DEDICATION HARRISON HAS GIVEN TO THE CHARACHTER SO AS A FAN OF INDY I MUST GIVE THE SAME BACK. NOW IF EVERYONE THINKS IM WRONG THEN ALL MY EFFORTS IN THE FORUM BECOME MEANINGLESS. WHAT WE DONT WANT IS TO DRAG OUT HIS ADVENTURES FOR THE SAKE OF KEEPING THE CHARACHTER RETURNING AT THE BOX OFFICE. WHATS SPECIAL, WE MUST KEEP SPECIAL. ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END. ITS HOW SPECIAL THESE GOOD THINGS MADE US FEEL THAT KEEP THE ADVENTURE WITHIN US ALIVE. THATS WHY WE LOVE THE FORUM SO MUCH ISNT IT??? Just a thought i wanted to share.
