Sure, but it's a risk that has to be taken, IMO.

Spielberg's casting choices in his prime were fantastic: Ke Quan, Phoenix and Connery were perfect for their roles, and each added his own touch,...

I'm fully aware that my personal preferences count for zilch in the great scheme of things, thank you. The same goes for everyone else.

I was just clarifying my position.

There's plenty of good actors out there. Where's the problem?

Fair enough.
Just of curiosity, which other ideas that I put forward for Indy 5 do you not like?

For some reason, you chose to focus on the second part of my statement, and ignore the first. Let's try again.

Amended for you.

What we are discussing here is Ford and a younger actor co-starring, taking turns at wearing the fedora in the past and "present".
Very different concept.

I would argue that the...

Not exactly great from a marketing standpoint, is it?

Indy is Lucas' baby, not Spielberg's.
He's the one who conceived the character, and Ford was not his first choice.

If Selleck had made himself available, he'd have got the part. End of.

Why would Ford refuse a smaller role, if he likes the script?

He took the part in BR2049, didn't he?

Clearly, the role would have to be mre than just brief bookends.

Yes: if they are still going to have Ford in it, this would be my favorite scenario.

And at any rate, I doubt if Ford would go for brief bookends along the lines you and others described.
