: : : HAMMER
: : He's good at the humour and the facial expressions. but when I saw Army of Darkness, he seemed to self-absorbed to be a believeable Indy.

: Don't go confusing the actor with the charactor! Ash, his Army of Darkness/Evil Dead 1 & 2 character, is indeed self-absorbed. But that doesn't mean that's all Bruce Campbell can play! Check out "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.", which I believe is still in reruns on TNT on Saturday mornings, and you'll see him in a very Indyish role. (Hence my name, too.) It's a fantastic show, and the best of all the Indy imitators, IMHO. Yes, Bruce would make a great Indy, but I don't think anyone could possibly step into Ford's shoes.
All I meant was that actor is forever typecast in my mind. Don't get me wrong, I love the Evil Dead movies (horror is good), and I couldn't see him as Indy. An Indy era adventurer, maybe, but not Indy himself.
I agree, whoheartedly, though, that no one could fill Ford's shoes.
