I personally think if anyone should play Indiana Jones again it should be Sean Patrick Flanery. He was just terrific on the the Young Indy TV show, especially in the drama scenes, where his skills excell (just take a look at his performance in POWDER - jeez, talk about under-rated!). A lot of people ragged on him because, no he doesn't look a lot like Harrison Ford, and 2, not many of the episodes were written with that physical action-hero quality in mind. Thankfully, that turned out to be the show's stregnth. If it HAD tried that, it would have came across as a lame wannabe' and people would have hated it even more than they already did! But Flanery stuck in there, all the way to the end he was game. And he did it just right - he not only infused Indy with humanistic qualities that Ford wasn't given the oppurtunity to do, Flanery DID manage to capture the charming qualities that Ford gave us to love about Indy! Take a look at any of the mroe comical themed episodes and you'll see what I mean there.
Flanery was fine, and I'd be well satisfied if the enxt Indy movie was a YOUNG INDY movie. It would probably come off better than having Ford try to convince us he's still capaable of being an action hereo (I can't even bring myself to go and watch AIR FORCE ONE)!
